IMMUNIZATIONS

In addition to the State College immunization requirements, students are required to be immunized for Hepatitis B, annual influenza. Students will receive a packet of information at the time of acceptance into Tunxis Community College Dental Assisting Program.

CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS

Some clinical learning sites require students to undergo a background check for felony convictions.

Students who do not pass the background check may be excluded from the clinical site and may not be able to meet the competencies required for the program.

CLINICAL SITES

Clinical learning experiences are planned as an integral part of the dental assisting courses and are held at a variety of health care settings, such as hospitals, extended care facilities, and selected community health centers. Students are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from assigned clinical sites. Clinical experiences may be assigned during daytime, evening, or weekend hours. Assignment of clinical sites is at the discretion of the dental assisting faculty.

WAIVER OF LICENSURE GUARANTEE

Upon successful completion of the certificate program in Dental Assisting, the graduate is eligible to take the Dental Assisting National Board exam. Students must pass all three components of the Dental Assisting National Board to become a certified dental assistant.

FELONY CONVICTION

If your answer is “yes,” give full details, dates, etc. on a separate notarized statement and furnish a certified court copy (with court seal affixed) of the original complaint, the answer, the judgment, the settlement, and/or the disposition.”
