Dental offers education opportunities for dental clinic assistants. Our programs are all classified as Vocational Education and Training (VET) and belong to the joint, educational entry ways “Care, Health and Pedagogy”.
In addition to this, Dental delivers continuous and in-service training for employees in the dental sector in subjects like digital x-ray, hygiene and tooth cleaning.
Life at the school
Dental has at its disposal a top modern school building situated at Rørdalsvej 10 in Aalborg (together with Style & Wellness). The tuition facilities here are fitted with the newest equipment, which enable the students to practise in an environment that matches a fully operational dental clinic.
It is possible to start the education at Dental after completing the nine years of compulsory schooling in Denmark. Many of our students are older than that, but common for all of them is that they are all mature and very committed to their education. This influences the environment at the school, where we are dedicated to our profession with the carefulness and concern that is required when working with patients and dental technique.
A part of TECHCOLLEGE
Dental is a part of TECHCOLLEGE - founded more than 200 years ago and now being one of the largest VET institutions in Denmark. In our organisational set-up, TECHCOLLEGE deals with overall management and administration for a total of 10 trade related colleges and a technical upper secondary school.
All colleges and schools under TECHCOLLEGE base their development activities on a joint strategy plan.
The global challenge
As a vocational college, we have a long tradition of being engaged in international cooperation. The idea is to open the minds of both teachers and students to the world, and to ensure that we equip our graduates with the international competences, which are needed in the globalized labour market.
A national support scheme, Work Placement Abroad (in Danish “PIU”), makes it possible for Danish VET students to do all – or part of – their company based training abroad. Our international coordinator at Dental is working to promote the use of this unique opportunity among our students and trying to engage the college in other types of international cooperation projects.
It should be noted that all non-EU citizens must pay school fees to attend our education programs and that all tuition at Dental is delivered in the Danish language.
