RCC Extends Deadline to Apply for Dental Assisting Program

The deadline to apply for admission to the dental assisting program at Rogue Community College has been extended to April 15. This limited-entry program is offered once a year at the Riverside Campus in downtown Medford; classes begin July 9.

Dental assisting is a one-year certificate program that includes classroom instruction and practical training designed to prepare students for living wage jobs in this high-demand industry. The program is eligible for financial aid, including Southern Oregon HOPE grants for qualified applicants.

Dental assistants perform tasks such as preparing patients for treatment, passing instruments during procedures, and taking impressions and dental X-rays. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects jobs in this field to expand 19 percent by 2026.

Watching a 7-minute informational video is a mandatory part of the application process. To see the video and learn more about the program, visit
