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 maximum “hands-on” training in a real dental office. And the dental office is closed to the public to not put the students under great stress while in a learning phase. There are no real patients to be harmed by just learning type mistakes 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 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 will have an Open House to answer any questions you may have about our course and give a brief tour of our office.
It would be wise to send your down payment in with your application before open house since we fill our class quickly. Sometimes before the open house. If you are considering entering the next class or are strongly thinking about it, come by my office and pick up a catalog, which includes all the information you need to be comfortable with your decision. Please call 676-1333 to schedule a tour of our office and training facility and pick up our catalog. If you have any questions do not hesitate to call, we look forward to seeing you in our next class! (and working in as few as 71 days).
