Did You Know…

…that according to the NC Dental Board, while working to earn their DA II credential, a DAI that is employed full time as a chair-side assistant may be trained in any dental delivery setting and allowed to perform the functions of a Dental Assistant II under the direct control and supervision of a licensed dentist? Visit for more details.

Student’s Externship Information

All NC Dental U DAI students are HIGHLY encouraged to complete a 40 clock hour externship at a dental practice of their choosing before graduation.  However, this is not a graduation requirement.  NC Dental U will issue the student’s externship office of choice a checklist of items that we as Directors would like for the student to participate in while at your office. Please allow our students to participate in and/or shadow as many different day to day procedures as you the dentist are comfortable with. Professional character and appearance are expected of all NC Dental U students while in your office at ALL times. Please feel free to inform us immediately if that is not the case. We sincerely appreciate your assistance with hosting our externship students.

We are happy to provide your office with a replacement externship checklist upon request. Due to proprietary information, we can not provide them for download here.

Student Liability Information

All of our currently enrolled Dental Assistant students are covered under a NC Dental U owned Professional Liability insurance policy, even while completing their externship at your office. A copy of this policy will be made available upon request.
