Dental Assistant Level II

If you’re a Level I Dental Assistant and would like to upgrade your skills, Medix College offers a certificate upgrade program* that will help you meet the requirements of a Level II Dental Assistant. Level II Dental Assistants perform both chair-side and intra-oral duties including, among others, topical application of anti-cariogenic agents, pit and fissure sealants, topical anaesthetics and desensitizing agents; oral hygiene instruction and dietary counselling related to dentistry; and whitening and mechanical polishing of the coronal portion of the teeth.

Upon completing our program, graduates will be eligible to appear in the National Dental Assisting Examining Board (NDAEB) exam and apply for Level II Certification with the Ontario Dental Assistants Association (ODAA). Certification is highly encouraged, as many dentists will not hire Dental Assistants unless they’re certified.

If you’re a graduate of a recognized Dental Assisting Program and want to upgrade to Level II certification, fill out our form for more information on upgrading!
