The Anesthesia Assistant Program is a certificate program approved by the Washington State Dental Commission. A Dental Anesthesia Assistant works at the direction of a Dentist, Oral Surgeon, Maxillofacial Surgeon, or other provider in preoperative, operative, and postoperative anesthesia, monitoring, and interventional care.
Among other duties, Anesthesia Assistants obtain pre-anesthetic health history, perform vascular access, establish non-invasive monitors, assist with the preparation and administration of medications, assist in the treatment of life-threatening situations, and assist with all aspects of anesthesia techniques, as allowed by certification and as directed by a licensed provider.
Resuscitation Group students learn and apply advanced practice skills and manage life threatening situations in simulation. The practical experience gained is not typical of all programs and is extremely valuable to prospective employers.
