1. Compare tuition with other schools and with all the hands on training we do at our school, there is no competition. We are the most affordable school in Utah Valley based on what we do! We use the LEARN, SEE AND DO method. We are a basic training program but we train you to become a dental assistant and we provide you with knowledge and training of dental radiology, CPR training and a fast track to a new career in 11 or 16 weeks. We help you learn how to do digital charting with online software accessible to students on our campus. We also provide OSHA training. Tuition is $2,800 (With several payment options), we can discuss any payment plan tailored to fit your needs and timeframe. Meet with us today! Our payment plans are all 0% interest. You don't need a credit check.
2. We are a school with ACTUAL HANDS ON on with a LICENSED DENTIST in an ACTUAL DENTAL OFFICE. At UVDA, you will actually be able to see live patients and do dental work. Not just one time. Other schools have tried to copy our model and we are very flattered. However, we started our school with our dentist being involved not only on our curriculum, but also in the hands on aspect. We have not 1 but 2 dentists. And they help our students!
3. We do a lot of hands on with each other (student to student) and often with live patients. We ASSIST (Not read about assisting) with a Dentist! AMAZING!!! We practice impressions and even other things we have learned, such as suctioning and tooth numbering.
4. Our curriculum is written by our very own lead Dental Assistant, Dental Hygienist (RDH) and Dentist (DDS) along with guidelines from several referenced and evidence based educational material and textbooks.
5. We have 5 star Google ratings and 5 Star 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.
7. We have helped over 200 students!
8. We offer Classes during the day and at night. Orem and Sandy, Utah.
9. We use digital x-rays and digital sensors and digital dental software training. Our dental x-ray units are registered with the State of Utah and have approvals for radiation safety.

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!!!
