Dental Assisting/Assistant. 510601


This is a 10-week All-inclusive program designed to enable you to be job-ready in a career in Dental Assisting.  According to the Labor Department, there should be more than 91,000 openings for dental assistants up to the year 2020.  That amounts to more than 30% employment growth, which is much faster than the average for all professions.  The need for so many more dental assistants is easy to cipher:  A large aging population intensifies the demand for quality healthcare and qualified practitioners.

Our program is designed to teach all the aspects of obtaining employment in the field, helping you to prepare to take national dental exams, perfecting your resume and learning how to find employment in Dental Assisting.

After completing our program, you will be provided the opportunity to sit for The Dental Assisting National Board, Inc. (DANB®), Radiation Health and Safety (RHS®).   Should a student decide to intern in the field, we will work with the student to obtain those internships.
