NTC Hosts Dental Assisting Open House

Northwest Technical College held an open house for those interested in learning about the high-demand careers in dental assisting on March 5.

NTC’s dental assisting lab was open from 1-3 p.m. for meetings with faculty, where participants learned about the program and career opportunities available to dental assisting graduates. The program’s state-of-the-art labs, which were refitted last spring with new training stations, was also open for tours.
