The student will spend 40 hours in a dental office. This opportunity is offered to the student for practical application of all skills learned while in school. Although the student receives no remuneration, this experience provides actual hands on work experience prior to graduation. The 40-hour internship program must be completed concurrently with the course. The student may start the program after completing at least two full weeks of the course. This will give the student enough introductory knowledge of the dental profession to benefit from the internship experience. The student may complete their hours in house, or with a preceptor approved by the school. The student must complete the 40 hours requirement prior to the end of the 13 week course to satisfy the graduation requirement.
