What does a Dental Office Administrator do?

Dental Office Administrators operate the reception and front office of a dental clinic. They work on dental software to enter patient information, schedule appointments, upload x-rays, bill insurance companies, and more. DOAs need to cope with dental emergencies and deal with special needs and medically compromised patients. A Dental Office Administrator requires excellent communication skills and customer service skills.

  • Preparing patients’ charts and daily schedules for the dental staff
  • Updating patient records and documenting recent treatments and procedures on an electronic client management system
  • Communicating with medical insurance providers to determine if patients are required to make co-payments

ABES College Difference

What Makes ABES Different from Other Schools?

We stand out from other schools for 3 big reasons:
  • As a small, privately owned school, ABES guarantees hands-on training for every student.
  •  Unlike other schools, all our programs offer practicum in the Calgary area—making it easier for you to stay local. (Many students get their first job offer while they’re still on practicum)
  • Finally, we stand out for our extensive connections in the medical community. Thanks to our relationships with local healthcare facilities, our graduates have an easy road to employment.
