TCC to honor dental assisting grads

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (July 11, 2014) – Tallahassee Community College will hold a pinning ceremony Tuesday, July 22, honoring nine graduates of the Dental Assisting program.

The new graduates will receive their pins at 6 p.m. in Turner Auditorium. The ceremony is open to the public.

“This is an outstanding group of students who have pulled together this year in spite of many changes during our clinic renovation.” said Ginny Wagner, dental health programs chair. “We are very proud of their success.”

The guest speaker will be program alumna and current TCC adjunct professor Jaclyn Copeland, a certified dental assistant who also holds a bachelor’s degree from Florida State University.

Graduates of the program are certified to work as assistants in dental offices, often working closely with dentists, orthodontists and hygienists. They are prepared to update medical histories, take dental x-rays, and prepare and sterilize instruments and equipment, among other duties.

The graduates will transition directly into private dental offices and public health clinics primarily in the Tallahassee area. In addition, they can become certified dental assistants by passing the Dental Assisting National Board Exam.
