A career of helping people improve their dental health will be rewarding and enormously satisfying for you.  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 basic “hands-on “training in a real dental office.  And the dental office is closed to the public so as not to put the students under great stress while in a learning phase.  There are no real patients to be harmed by just learning and no demanding dentists to criticize lack of speed.  This is a real school! You are not expected 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 your participation.  The largest size of each group will be one instructor per 8 students. An excellent textbook is used (yes, there are reading assignments and homework) so classroom time can be spent learning the “hands-on” stuff. If you are inspired by this entry level course you may move on to take other courses that would lead to x-ray certification, expanded function licensure or even certified dental assistant (CDA), A nationally recognized title!
