Elite Dental Assisting

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.

If you are interested in submitting a scholarship application, please call 360-433-0788 or email us. All applications this year will be through email only. All applications are due by May 22, 2016 and the winner/s will be announced June 1, 2016.

Each student gets to make their own impressions and teeth whitening trays. I think that’s one of the reasons our graduates have such big smiles!! They love showing off their newly whitened teeth!

Dental Assistant – Learning Skills & CPR for a new Career

dental assistant xrayAs our September class is coming to a close, we are so impressed with how far these students have come! They dove right into the course and set out to become an Elite Dental Assistant!

These amazing women worked together to study and learn a new career. They have learned the value of hard work and what it means to selflessly put other’s needs ahead of their own, one of the best qualities of a dental assistant!

As their 13 weeks comes to a close (boy that way fast!!!), we marvel at what an amazing group of women we have come to know, admire and appreciate.

dental assistant cprA highlight of the program is the CPR class! If you’ve ever taken a class where the teacher is throwing out different “choking” or “lack of breathing” scenarios, you’ll understand the feeling of jumping for joy because you think you’ve revived that dummy only to see it’s found something else to choke on before you can finally pass the test!! There is no falling asleep during this fast paced hands on CPR session, and you can see by the photos the students are not only learning but having a fun time!

These dedicated students are working hard, studying intensely and preparing for their new career as dental assistants. We couldn’t be more proud!

dental assistant scopeDental Assisting is a lot more than just sucking spit!! Dental Assistants are artists! Among the many skills a student will learn is learning to make impressions, grinding and trimming models, then creating custom trays for teeth whitening. They learn to create temporary crowns, sealants and all the while keeping the patient’s best interest at heart!
