Many schools offer Associate degree programs, though some will offer Bachelor and Master's degree programs for those who want to become more than assistants to a dentist.

A person entering such a program should have some high school chemistry and biology courses completed. This will help in gaining a better understanding in subject matter upon entering the professional program.
