About Our Team

Our student to instructor ratio is low. Students get the attention they need to learn the aspects of being a Dental Assistant. Smaller class sizes

Great School! Great instructors! If you want to be a dental assistant come to this school. You will learn everything within 10 Saturday’s. I love that you get hands on training. Not just book work.

Staffs are friendly and extremely helpful. Got to do a lot of hands experience with real patients. Classes are hands on during the morning and evening, then after is book and lecture work. Class hours are every Saturday 8am-5pm which is really helpful if you have a busy schedule.

The instructors are really friendly and kind and will help you as much as possible so that you can be ready to start your career. It is a great place to be and very welcoming.
