The task of the dental chairside assistant is to assist patients, dentists and dental hygienists and to do x-rags and other clinical procedures.


We focus on internationalization in several ways. We encourage and support our students to take part of their education abroad. Likewise we welcome foreign students and staff to contact us to explore the possibilities to spent time here. We exchange through Erasmus+ and NordPlus. We do internationalization at home for those of our students who do not go abroad themselves eg. we have a yearly international day during which we focus on oral health care and oral health care systems in other countries.
