    Our Companies’ quest for excellence inspires everything that defines us. We focus on everyone's distinctive talents and strengths. Our passion for the business and the future drives us to be the best. We are looking for a professional, organized, reliable, team player to join our organization. The Dental Assisting Instructor is responsible for the instruction of students enrolled in The Core Foundation’s dental assisting training program, as outlined in the course catalog. This includes: preparing lectures, lecturing, providing clinical guidance, scheduling and tracking intern/externship hours, grading homework and exams, in-office training of current assistants (as needed), providing documentation of student progress as required by state agencies and, most importantly, creating an educational environment that is both fun and informative for our students. S/he is also expected to take an active role in the marketing and expansion of the current program, along with any subsequent programs, as well as working closely with the Academic Administrator to ensure program success. The instructor will prepare dental assistants to enter into the workforce with a minimum entry level skill set. This includes: resume preparation, professional networking in the field, operating knowledge of Dentrix, preparing Dental Assistants for patients’ dental examination, performing chair-side duties (such as handing the dentist the proper materials and tools needed for the procedure), operating suction, operating x-ray machines, taking impressions of a patient's mouth or teeth, sterilizing instruments, utilizing techniques of infection control, and mixing compounds for cleaning or filling teeth.
