On-Site Dental Assistant Course

Our on-site dental assisting program is perfect for students who do not have to travel long distances to our facility or need to "rush" to complete the course.

THIS PROGRAM IS MORE IN LINE WITH A TRADITIONAL COLLEGE EXPERIENCE AND GIVES STUDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO:

  • Immerse yourself in a traditional 10-week-long program consisting of training and in-office lectures each Saturday from 9AM until 5PM. On-site classes are conducted in an intimate teaching environment to ensure each student gets the attention they need and deserve.
  • Learn from successful dental professionals in our state-of-the-art dental assisting school in Kennesaw, GA. Because this program is only offered four times a year, class space is very limited.
  • Get a basic understanding of common dental assisting techniques through lectures in the morning. You will put those techniques to use in our operatories in the afternoon, where you will practice real-world dental assistant duties.
  • Attend an orientation meeting, where you will receive your textbooks, studying materials, scrubs, and more.
  • Benefit from 48 hours of shadowing by our fully trained technicians and dental professionals. While you are being shadowed, your instructor will walk you through important procedures and teach you crucial skills needed for a fulfilling career as a dental assistant.
  • Build friendships and lifelong relationships with like-minded students who also want to begin a career in the dental industry.

Why Choose A Career In The Dental Industry?

According to the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of dental assistants is expected to grow 11% over the next 10 years - faster than the average job growth of many other industries. New and ongoing evidence suggests an important link between a person's overall health and their oral health. Because of this, demand for dental-related services is expected to stay strong for years to come. Dental offices in Georgia and other states must meet this projected demand. As such, the need for trained dental assistants will continue to grow.

As Baby Boomers grow older and as more men and women practice good oral hygiene, the need to treat and maintain one's teeth will lead to an increased need for quality dental care. Over the next decade, the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests that nearly 24,000 new dental assisting jobs will be created. That means the future is bright for any student who has been educated through our dental assisting courses in Kennesaw.

The work/life balance in the U.S is a problem. Spending every waking hour at the office instead of home with family can be draining at best and depressing at worst. Unlike other professionals, dental assistants typically enjoy normal working hours during the business week. That means they have more free time to dedicate to their children and families.

Kennesaw State researchers develop non-invasive blood glucose monitoring process

As a child, Maria Valero witnessed her diabetic father prick his finger several times a day to draw blood and check his glucose levels using an electronic monitor. She was concerned about the invasive and painful process but was also curious about the technology behind the device.“After watching my father go through that, I wanted to create something less invasive,” said Valero.The assistant professor of information technology in Kennesaw St...

As a child, Maria Valero witnessed her diabetic father prick his finger several times a day to draw blood and check his glucose levels using an electronic monitor. She was concerned about the invasive and painful process but was also curious about the technology behind the device.

“After watching my father go through that, I wanted to create something less invasive,” said Valero.

The assistant professor of information technology in Kennesaw State’s College of Computing and Software Engineering (CCSE) and director of KSU’s IoT as a Service Research Group is working to improve the glucose monitoring process for the millions of people around the world affected by diabetes.

Using funding from the College and a lot of trial and error, Valero and her team created a non-invasive process that can identify the exact value of blood glucose with 90% accuracy without taking a blood sample. The GlucoCheck process uses light shone through human tissue, in either the ear or finger, and a small camera to capture images on the other side. Valero’s team then uses a model to study the amount of light absorption in those images to determine blood glucose concentration.

“Our pilot study was very successful,” she said. “We are excited about how this device will help people with diabetes, which affects about one in every 10 people in the United States.”

Valero and her team recently filed a provisional patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect the process they created. Director of Kennesaw State’s Office of Intellectual Property Development Chris Cornelison helped Valero sift through research projects around the world to make sure the GlucoCheck process is unique and patentable.

“The way we gather and output the data is novel, and we will continue to work on ways to improve the glucose estimation model,” Valero said. The team has tested the process on nearly 50 people so far, but before filing a full patent next summer, they will assess how the process works on people with a range of skin pigmentations and skin thickness.

Valero’s students have already created a mobile phone application and are working on connecting GlucoCheck to Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa.

“I am very fortunate to have great students who are extremely motivated and bring a wealth of knowledge to this project,” Valero said. “Watching them grow as researchers who want to make a difference in the world using technology is very rewarding.”

According to Paola Spoletini, interim associate dean of CCSE, Valero’s commitment to her research is compounded by her dedication to her students.

“Dr. Valero is passionate about using technology to make a difference in the world, and she is an incredible asset to our College,” Spoletini said. “Not only is she developing cutting-edge technologies, but she also serves as a mentor and role model to her students.”

In addition to her students, Valero has worked closely with Hossain Shahriar, associate professor of information technology, and Katherine Ingram, associate professor of exercise science. Ingram is currently researching gestational diabetes risk, and Shahriar’s research focuses on health information technology, data analytics and cybersecurity. Their paper detailing the pilot study was recently accepted into the Journal of Medical Internet Research, and Valero has used the data to apply for additional funding.

The Snellville, Ga. native leads the team with three goals on just five shots. The forward scored her third goal in the 2-0 win over Georgia Southern. Allen's three total goals rank tied for second in the ASUN.

A Look at Jacksonville State The Gamecocks opened the season 0-6 but enter the match on a two-game winning streak. Jacksonville State has been shut out in five of its six losses and just one goal in the other defeat. After scoring just one goal through six games, JSU's offense has combined for seven goals in its last two against Alabama State and Troy. Cynthia Bagozzi leads the Gamecocks with three goals, with all three coming in a hat trick in the 4-1 win over Alabama State.

Common Opponents KSU and Jacksonville State have shared two common opponents leading into Sunday's conference opener. Kennesaw State dropped a close 2-1 match to South Alabama while JSU lost 4-0 to the Jags. Against Georgia State, the Owls played to a draw, 2-2 and the Gamecocks fell 3-0 to the Panthers.

Blye Impresses in 2-0 Shutout True freshman goalkeeper Allanah Blye had a strong week in net this past week totaling 16 saves in two games. At Tennessee, Blye finished with a career-best nine saves. In her first home start, the Duncan, S.C. native finished with seven saves and posted her first career clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Georgia Southern. The 2-0 shutout was KSU's first since a 1-0 win against Bellarmine on Oct. 31, 2021, in the ASUN Conference Tournament.

Here Comes the Rain Sophomore forward Macie Rainwater scored goals in two straight games earlier in the year. The forward added a goal at UAB and another goal at home against Georgia State. The Kennesaw native is tied for 10th in the ASUN with two goals. Rainwater led the Owls in scoring as a freshman a season ago, netting seven goals and 14 points to earn a spot on the all-conference freshman team. The forward scored the first KSU hat trick since Shannon Driscoll on Aug. 28, 2016, with three goals in the ASUN Tournament quarterfinal win against Central Arkansas last season.

Kennesaw State awarded grant to research, develop advanced interstate tolling system

Faculty members at Kennesaw State University are embarking on a four-year project to develop a connected vehicle system for the Atlantic City Expressway in New Jersey, thanks to a grant from the Federal Highway Administration.

The grant is part of an $8.74 million award to the South Jersey Transportation Authority and is the largest award to date for Kennesaw State’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The goal of the project is to transform the Atlantic City Expressway into a smart and connected corridor using cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology, which uses either direct communication or conventional cellular networks, similar to 5G technology in cell phones.

“This is a large, collaborative effort that will modernize how drivers in the United States use tolls,” said Ian Ferguson, dean of the Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology. “It’s especially exciting that faculty members from civil engineering, computer engineering and electrical engineering, as well as other universities and government agencies, will use their expertise to address this need.”

Kennesaw State is more than 600 miles from New Jersey, but a connection through transportation engineering systems sparked the partnership. Assistant professor of civil engineering Parth Bhavsar previously taught at Rowan University in New Jersey and has remained close with the director of its Center for Research and Education in Advanced Transportation Engineering Systems (CREATES). Kennesaw State is working with Rowan University, Clemson University, the University of Alabama and West Virginia University on this project.

“This is the future,” said Sunanda Dissanayake, chair of KSU’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and an internationally renowned traffic expert. “We have to be smart about transportation because the systems we have now will someday be insufficient.”

Bhavsar will lead Kennesaw State’s team of researchers to develop technology that will eventually remove the need for toll booths and stickers, like Georgia’s Peach Pass.

“Your car will be equipped with technology that will communicate with infrastructure devices and other vehicles,” Bhavsar explained. “This is important for anyone who drives because we can use this technology to decrease travel times and plan for the future of autonomous vehicles.”

The U.S. DOT wants the primary focus of the project to be deploying and evaluating compatible technology to support future connected and automated vehicles traveling on the Atlantic City Expressway (ACE). Bhavsar said his team will also develop an “infrastructure in-loop” for the entire length of the ACE, which will allow future researchers to gather travel data collected along the expressway and test new algorithms.

In addition, Kennesaw State researchers will develop pavement distress detection modules to monitor pavement performance over time, and the Burruss Institute will assist with user-perception surveys. Other faculty members involved in the project are research assistant professor of computer engineering Billy Kihei, associate professor of computer science and Director of Research Computing Ramazan Aygun, and associate professor of electrical engineering and Graduate Program Coordinator Sumit Chakravarty.

“The U.S. DOT also wants the team to perform a cost-benefit analysis to track where taxpayer money is going and the future return on investment,” Bhavsar said.

The research team will work on developing this technology over the next two years, while the third and fourth years will be for deployment and evaluation. They hope this technology can serve as a model to use around the country in the future.

KENNESAW, Ga. – Georgia, Ole Miss and Georgia Tech on the road and home games against Georgia State and Mercer highlight the 2022-23 Kennesaw State women's basketball schedule as the Owls announced the full schedule on Tuesday.

The Owls won nine games in the first year under second-year head coach Octavia Blue and return four of five starters from a season ago, including two-time All-ASUN selection Amani Johnson. Johnson has been one of the most prolific players to come through Kennesaw State as the Pennsylvania native sits third on the all-time scoring list in KSU Division I history. The non-conference slate features four home contests and seven road games, with three against teams that made the NCAA Tournament last season.

"I am super excited to announce our schedule for 2022-23 season," head coach Octavia Blue said. "We have really challenged ourselves with a tough non-conference schedule. We will face Top-25 opponents, conference champs and regional matchups that Owl Nation can come out to support and be a part of whether we are playing at home or away."

"I am particularly looking forward to seeing how we measure up against those teams," added Blue. "The opportunity to put on display a 'new look' KSU women's basketball team compiled of seven newcomers and eight returners. Playing a schedule like ours in the non-conference will have us both prepared and battle-tested heading into ASUN conference play."

KSU will host an exhibition game against Young Harris on Nov. 3 and opens the season on the road at Ole Miss on Nov. 7. The Rebels are coming off a 23-win season and earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament.

The Owls host Middle Georgia on Nov. 10 for their home opener. Blue's squad scorched the nets in a 100-31 victory in the home opener last season, setting the record for most points in a game in program history.

Kennesaw State embarks on a five-game road trip starting with matchups at Georgia Tech (11/13) and Georgia (11/16). The Yellow Jackets and Bulldogs finished with 21 wins and each earned bids to the NCAA Tournament.

After a trip to Chattanooga on Nov. 21, KSU wraps up the road swing at Florida Atlantic (12/2) and Florida International (12/4).

KSU closes out the non-conference slate with three out of four games at home at the KSU Convocation Center. The Owls host Georgia State (12/10), Mercer (12/19) and the final non-conference game of the season against Coastal Georgia on Dec. 29. Kennesaw State's lone road game during the stretch is at Furman (12/15).

The Owls begin their conference portion of the schedule at Eastern Kentucky on Jan. 2, and finish up ASUN play with a home game against conference newcomer Queens on March 1.

The previously announced ASUN slate is available here.

The 2023 ASUN Conference Women's Basketball Championship will be held on March 4-11 at campus sites as the top seeds will host each successive round of the event. Teams will be reseeded following the quarterfinal contests.

Season tickets will be available to purchase soon.
