Freedom. No more hourly jobs or working nights and weekends. You now have the freedom to do what you want to do.
How long is the program?
Our education and training program lasts 13 weeks.
How can the class be so short?
We’re a “hands-on learning program”. This differs a bit from traditional education. Our classes take place in a dental office and a class learning center. A majority of the learning is hands-on. Our classes begin with lecture/class discussion, but a majority of the time is spent in lab where students are in the operatories learning one on one with instructors to take impressions, pour up models, etc. When our professional students complete the program and start working, they feel comfortable in the office setting because that’s the environment they were trained in.
Will I be more qualified if I go to school for longer?
When you graduate from any dental assisting school you receive a certificate of completion. Many students ask if they can expect to make a higher starting salary if they attend school longer. The answer to that is no. The starting salary for a Dental Assistant does not have anything to do with how long you spent in school, or how much you paid for your schooling. We set you up to become an entry level dental assistant.
“Employment for Dental Assistants is expected to grow by 30% or more to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.” – According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
What will my earning capacity be after successful completion of this course?
The mean annual wage for dental assistants was $16.00/hour or 35,080/year reported in May 2012 by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
