What you will learn in the Dental Assisting program

We believe it is essential to have a full understanding of why you’ll follow certain procedures, in addition to learning how to do them. Our Dental Assisting courses include both theoretical classroom instruction and practical hands-on learning in a clinical setting.

As you complete your program, the importance of hands-on training in dental assisting education will become apparent as you complete the required 120-hour externship, which gives you the opportunity to work in a real dental practice with real patients.

Are you ready for a new career?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates demand for qualified Dental Assistants will increase up to 11% by 2028. With the right combination of attention to detail and Dental Assisting training, you can be on your way to a rewarding career.
