There are many job opportunities for the qualified dental assistant to assist dentists and hygienists in the dental profession.  Although many desire to be trained in this profession, there are challenges that prevent them from attending school. It is difficult for most people to attend school on a full time basis because they have to work to earn a living or have children to tend.  The expense necessary to finance schooling in a major college is also another reason most people are discouraged in pursuing further education.  We feel that the dental assisting program offered at our school will meet these challenges.  The night time schedules are designed to accommodate working students.  The very affordable tuition fee will also solve the financing issues for most prospective students.  Students are accepted regardless of sex, race, age, marital status, religious creed, ethnic or national origin.scholarship-2

Memorizing the anatomy of the head is one of the most difficult tasks for our students, so we make it mandatory that each student paint and label a skull. We have found this strategy has improved the ease of this daunting task! We see some incredible skulls!!!
