About Our Program
The job opportunities for trained dental assistants are quite good in today’s marketplace. In most parts of the country, there is an acute shortage of dental assistants. An examination of the classified ads in the Sunday newspaper shows that the demand for dental assistants is quite strong.
This is true all over the country as well. The majority of these ads require experienced applicants.
Following your training in this ten week course, you will have the confidence and skills necessary to apply for these positions. Along with your diploma and x-ray certification, we will provide a letter of recommendation and a summary of your training experience to those students with a 70% or above grade average for the course.
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, as well so that you will stand out from the rest of those competing for a position in this field.
Dental Assisting is a very rewarding job in itself. One of the factors driving job-seekers today is salary. The average dental assistant has the opportunity to make a wide range of wages. Salaries depend on where the dental office is located, the size and efficiency of the staff, and the productivity of the office. The more experienced you are at your job, the better you will be able to serve the patients and the staff at your future employment.
Another aspect of what to look for in a job is personal satisfaction. Working as a dental assistant in the health care community is challenging and rewarding at the same time. You get to experience working face to face with the people in your community who truly need your help. You will get to see how your hard work can positively affect someone’s life. This is the real reason we offer this course to you.
All supplies, materials, teaching aids, books, etc., are supplied at no additional charge. There are no hidden costs beyond the tuition for the course.
Our course is unique in that it is taught in an actual practicing dental office. You will learn the state-of-the-art methods in assisting. Our staff has many years experience in the dental profession and in teaching the art and science of dental assisting. We constantly update our course as techniques and the profession change.
