1. Compare tuition with other schools and we are hands down one of the most, if not, the most affordable school in Utah Valley. We are a basic training program. We train you as a dental assistant and we provide you with knowledge and training of dental radiology and digital radiology equipment and technology.We help you learn how to do digital charting with online software accessible to students on our campus. ​We also provide OSHA training. Tuition $2,800

 

2. We are one of the schools with actual hands on with a licensed dentist where you will actually be able to see and do some dental work. Other schools have tried to copy our model and we are very flattered. However, we started our school with the dentist being involved not only on our curriculum, but also in the hands on aspect. We have not 1 but 2 dentists.

3. We do a lot of HANDS ON With each other (student to student) and on occasion with live patients. We SEE LIVE PATIENTS WITH OUR LICENSED DENTIST! AMAZING!!! we practice impressions and even other things we have learned, such as suctioning and tooth numbering.

5. We have 5 star Google ratings and Facebook ratings.

6. Students who have completed other dental assisting courses, end up doing OURS because they did not receive the right training and we have re-trained them. This has happened at least 2x.

What kind of experience will I gain with hands on training and how is this better?

We do a lot of hands on. Our dental operatories and facility is ours only and we don't have to share it with any other dental practice so if a student needs extra help, we can always be there to help. 

Classroom instruction can help you understand and learn new concepts. But our approach is even better because it not only includes classroom training, but provides excellent clinical training with the use of modern dental equipment and simulations to help you master techniques. This will ensure you master skills in dental assisting and obtain experience necessary to gain employment.

How much will I earn as a dental assistant?

 

Typical starting wages are between $11-12/hr. A seasoned dental assistant can make around $18-20/hr.

Depending on where you live. Some of our students have earned between $15-$19 just starting. However it is not very common.

Even some very fresh and new graduates have landed jobs with companies asking for experienced students only. We will help with job placement!!!

 

We can't guarantee jobs, but we are 100% on board on helping you find a job. Just ask our past students. We do as much as we can and there are many jobs out there.
