About the Course

The Job opportunities for trained dental assistants are quite good in today's marketplace.  While no one can guarantee job placement, the dental profession is currently facing 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.  Along with your Certificate, we will give you a summary of your training experience.

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.

Additionally, doctors may 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.

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 a metropolitan area 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. The good news is, as your experience and skills develop with time on the job your pay level should also raise.
