Lincoln Tech tackles dental assistant shortage with new training program

Lincoln Technical Institute introduced a new dental assisting program at its Iselin, N.J., campus.

Lincoln Technical Institute is part of Lincoln Educational Services, which provides diversified career-oriented post-secondary education, according to a Jan. 26 press release.

"We know that in New Jersey, the market for dental assistants is strong," Scott Shaw, Lincoln Tech president and CEO, said. "The shortage of qualified dental assistant candidates is a prominent part of the overall hiring crisis in the healthcare industry, and we look forward to helping address that need."

The Iselin campus is the third Lincoln Tech campus to offer dental assistant training along with the Rhode Island and Massachusetts locations. The certificate program takes approximately 12 months to complete and offers day and evening scheduling options.

Classes for the program will begin March 14.
