A career in helping people improve their dental health will be rewarding and enormously satisfying.  No two days will ever be the same, and your job will continuously renew itself.  Dental assisting is a career that will always be in demand and in need of enthusiastic, trained, and caring individuals.  This could be you, couldn’t it!?

Our course is designed to give our students maximum “hands-on" training in a real dental office while the dental office is closed to allow students a safe and relaxed learning environment. This is a real dental assisting school and we do NOT expect you to already know everything. You are just expected to work hard, study well, and learn!

  • The teaching is stimulating, fast-paced, and relies heavily on student participation.
  • The largest size of each group will be one instructor per 10 students.
  • An excellent textbook is used (yes, there are reading assignments and homework) so classroom time can be spent learning the “hands-on” stuff.

We recommend sending your application and down payment before the open house since our classes fill quickly.

Our Course Outline & Application 

Job Preparation

The job opportunities for trained dental assistants are quite good in today's marketplace.  While no one can guarantee job placement, the dental profession faces a shortage of trained assistants.  If one examines the want ads, there are many for Dental Assistants.

Following your training in this ten-week course, you will have the confidence and skills necessary to apply for these positions.

Job Interview.Part of your training will involve the Job Interview itself, how to prepare for it, how to dress, what to say, etc. So often, jobs are lost during the first five minutes of the interview. We feel it is important to train you in this area so that you will stand out from the rest of those competing for that position.

Networking Opportunities. Additionally, many doctors call our office asking for a list of our recent student graduates. We also inform our current class of any doctors needing Dental Assistants so that they may apply directly for the position. Many of our students have obtained jobs as dental assistants even before finishing the course.

Better Salary.The starting pay scale for experienced dental assistants is considerably higher than non-experienced and most offices will not even consider anyone with no experience. We are often asked what a graduate from our course can expect to make in their first job. The answer depends on where the office is. Offices in metropolitan areas generally pay higher salaries than those in suburban areas. Graduates of our course can expect to start well above the pay scale of those with no experience but less than experienced assistants. This is good news because as your experience and skills develop with time on the job, your pay level should also rise.
