Chattahoochee Tech Implements New Program In Dental Assisting For Skilled Workforce Need

Chattahoochee Technical College has implemented a new program in Dental Assisting that addresses a widespread need for highly skilled workers in this career field.

“Due to the fact that there is a national dental assistant shortage that is projected to continue through 2024, our dental assisting students are in an optimal position to enter the job market,” said Chattahoochee Tech Dental Assisting Program Director Michelle Peets. The college welcomed its first class of dental assisting students this fall. This program is based at the Chattahoochee Tech Marietta Campus in the college’s new, state-of-the-art health science building.

“Our task is not just to get the students into the workforce, but to provide the dental community with outstanding dental assistants,” said Peets. “Our goal is for the dental assisting program at Chattahoochee Tech to become the standard for the dental community when it is looking to hire.”
