#ICYMI: 2018 Dental Assistant Recognition Week in Review
Jan 30, 2019
Last week was Dental Assistant Recognition Week. At Concorde, we used it as a time to honor our employer partners, reach out to alumni and celebrate students in our dental assistant training programs. This yearâs theme was âAdvancing the professional through collaboration and leadership.â Together, the dental community acknowledged the growing importance of dentistryâs role in health care and the responsibilities of dental assistants. What exactly do dental assistants do?

Here are a few highlights from across the nation. Concordes campus in Orlando got punny with some honey buns! Throughout the week, dental assisting students received pun-laced treats. Like we say about life, most things in moderation! Students and associates in Concordes Portland campus gathered together for a quick group picture in between their activities. Our cohorts are more than just classmates. They become their own little family! Dental Assistant Recognition Week isnât just for dental students! Grand Prairies Concorde campus used it as an opportunity to highlight the important parts of their profession and teach good oral health to other students on campus. Weâre not just a dental assistant school, though, check out our other health care training programs!
