Education courses in the Intra-Oral Dental Assistant Diploma education programme consist of a variety of practical and theoretical lessons. Students begin with core dental studies which give an orientation to dentistry, oral facial science, and environmental health and safety. Students are also taught how to organize and manage diagnostic records, conduct radiography, and perform administrative duties.

Students enrolled in this Intra-Oral Dental Assistant Diploma are required to complete 80 hours of work experience in a private practice during Phase I of the programme, and 60 hours during Phase II, to graduate with a diploma. The work experience gives students practical knowledge for working in a dental environment with professional dental assistants and dentists.
