COURSE :: Dental Assistant Course

Course Description

The Dental Assisting Program is a 12-week dental assistant hands on course, taught in a working dental facility. This allows full access to all dental instruments and equipment. Because it is a hands-on course, we cover a lot in a short amount of time. Hit the ground running with a dental assisting education that is accelerated and yet thorough.

This program is offered in Dallas and Houston, Texas, Carson City and Reno, Nevada, the Front Range and Grand Junction, Colorado and Puyallup and Vancouver, Washington.

All programs offer training in taking radiology (taking x-rays) that meets the requirement of that State. All programs include CPR certification and RDA in Texas.
