The most comprehensive course available!
All expanded functions are not the same and we do things a bit differently at Impact Dental Training! Our new, up to date curriculum has hands on, practical technique labs to enhance learning and meet all the requirements of the Iowa Dental Board. The courses closely follow the Dental Assisting Educator Council's Expanded Functions Curriculum Guidelines giving continuinge education for both lecture and clinical components.

Level One Expanded Functions consists of eleven skills for dental assistants and five skills for dental hygienists. Two new skills were added in July, 2015 and previous expanded function assistants can complete coursework withus to become certified as Level One.   After completing Level One our graduates are eligible to enroll in Level Two Expanded Function coursework. 

Why partner with Impact Dental Training?

  • ​​ Flexibility. Team members can take only the expanded function courses they want and/or need or enroll in the complete Level One Expanded Functions program.
  • Hands on labs using real dental materials.  We have practial, hands on labs so team members return to the office with experience, better prepared to perform the skills immediately.
  • Small class sizes.  Our priority is our student success so we purposely keep our class sizes small so everyone will get personalized attention throughout the process.
  • Remediation and support.  We provide additonal instruction to all participants until successful completion of all Iowa Dental Board required post tests is achieved.
  • Experienced dental educators as instructors.   We take pride in the fact our instructors have years of experience in dental education   at the University of Iowa, College of Dentistry, DMACC Dental Assisting & Hygiene Programs and Vatterott Dental Assisting Program. 
  • Dental Assisting Educator Council Expanded Function Curriculum.  Our IDB approved curriculum closely follows the council's recommendations. We award a total of 52 CEU's at the completion of both the                                                                                                     didactic (lecture-24 CEU's) and clinical (in-office-26 CEU's) aspects of the course.
  • Private practice influence.  We are still active in private practice so we                                                                                                           undertand the needs of an office. We know what's important. We keep it real.
