Tarrant County College Community & Industry Education Services will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Registered Dental Assistant Program. The program, which prepares students to work as registered dental assistants in just six months, serves Tarrant County and surrounding counties through partnership with clinical sites and community relationships that stimulate economic growth.
The reception will honor past and present students, faculty, administration, dental clinical sites and advisory board members.
Friday, Oct. 30
2 to 4 p.m.
TCC Northeast Campus Larry J. Darlage Center Corner, NSTU 1615
828 W. Harwood Road
Fort Worth, TX 76054
The program closed as a credit program in the mid-1980s because of low enrollment. It was reestablished because of the lack of qualified assistants in the area. TCC offers two 20-member classes in the fall and spring semesters. The 22-week training program includes a six-week clinical at clinical sites throughout Tarrant County. Beginning salaries range from $12 to $15 per hour.
