A Day in the Life of a Typical Dental Assistant
Dear Future Dental Assistant,
As a Dental Assistant, your work may vary. You’ll deliver patient care such as helping the dentist with various dental procedures, prepping patients, obtaining dental records, processing x-ray film, schedule and confirm appointments, receive patients and more.
It’s a fulfilling and exciting career in a nice, professional environment. And you’ll have good work hours too. Most dental offices are open for business Monday through Friday, 8 hours a day. The best part is, you’ll have a fulfilling job that truly helps others. It’s a job you can feel proud of!
We’ll Train You so you can receive your Certificate of Completion
in Dental Assisting in just 13 Weeks.
You’ll Gain Skills & Expertise Beyond What Typical Programs Offer
To become a Dental Assistant, you have to get the right training. And that’s exactly what we can provide you. Over three years went into the development of our Dental Assisting curriculum. We looked at all of the other available programs, took what worked best, removed the filler and improved on the finished product. Since we are a registered school, students can earn a certificate of completion to show their future potential employer.
Our students come from all over the Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington area. One student of the curriculum, Lauri Whitney, said. “Taking my dental class through your school was a great experience for me. It provided me a program that gave me accurate and up to date information regarding dental assisting and various dental procedures. I felt that the training and lab time prepared me for working as a dental assistant in the real world. Your staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone interested in becoming a successful dental assistant.” Graduates are finding good jobs that are leading to successful careers.
One of the benefits of our school is that students will learn all the information in a classroom setting, and will get hours of hands-on training in a local dental office. Many of the students at the Elite Dental Assisting Academy are young and just getting started with a career in the health-care industry. Others are re-entering the workplace later in life or wish for a career change and are finding great opportunities. Classes start six times every year, so students can enroll anytime with a new session starting soon. Classes are a few nights per week and include elements in the classroom laboratory and hands-on in a practice. Students must have a high school diploma or a GED equivalent to qualify to enroll. Upon completion, graduates receive a Certificate in Dental Assisting.
In today’s economy, people of all ages are looking for career options. Programs like this Dental Assisting School are a viable growth option. Other programs offer mostly lecture-based training with limited hands-on time, which leaves graduates unprepared for the job market. But with our accelerated program you’ll get hands-on training in absolutely all aspects of Dental Assisting. This kind of experience will put you ahead of your peers.
In other programs, instructors are limited in the amount of attention they can give to a class of 30 or more students but with our program you’ll get personal attention because our classes are limited to 16 students. This means you’ll graduate with the confidence, the skills and the “know-how” to excel in your new career.
I am a strong believer in the Elite Dental Assisting Academy curriculum and effectiveness. Take advantage of this opportunity and reserve a spot in our next Dental Assisting class… Email or call (360) 433-0788 today!
