A career of helping people improve their dental health will be rewarding and enormously satisfying for you. No two days will ever be the same and your job will continuously renew itself. Dental assisting is a career that will always be in demand and in need of enthusiastic, trained and caring individuals. This could be you, couldn't it?


Our course is designed to give students maximum hands on training in a real dental office. The teaching is stimulating, fast-paced and relies heavily on your participation.


The largest class is one instructor per 10 students. This allows for more one-on-one attention from the instructor and faster absorption of the skills being taught.


The dental profession is currently facing a shortage of trained assistants. Often doctors call our office asking for a list of recent graduates. Many of our students obtain a job before finishing the course.


Following your training in this ten-week course, you will have the confidence and skills necessary to apply for these positions.

The starting pay scale for experienced dental assistants is considerably higher than non-experienced and most offices will not even consider anyone with no experience. We are often asked what can a graduate from our course expect to make in their first job. The answer depends of where the office is. Offices in the metropolitan area generally pay higher salaries than those in suburban areas. Graduates of our course can expect to start well above the pay scale of those with no experience, but less than experienced assistants, which is good news due to the fact that as your experience and skills develop with time on the job your level of pay should also rise.


Our dental assistant program is held 4 times a year for 10 weeks. Our classes are held on Saturdays only from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
This allows our students to still work during the week if need be.
