Expanded Duties

A dental assistant can perform a variety of routine duties in the dental office as prescribed by Georgia of Board of Dentistry rules. Assistants may begin the process of enrolling in Expanded Duties training by printing the registration packet. Note: You cannot download any study guides or related course information ​until you register for courses.

The Expanded Duties program is designed to prepare students for entry-level dental careers working alongside dentists. Skills taught during the course include placing dental restorations under the direct supervision of a dentist. The Expanded Course also prepares students to assist the dentist chairside or to work in the operatory or treatment room with the dentist. The chairside dental assistant mixes and prepares dental impression and restorative materials, evacuates debris and extraneous materials from the oral cavity, and prepares the operator for procedures including instrument tray and anesthesia set-ups as required by the dentist.
