The job opportunity for trained dental assistants is quite good in today’s marketplace. In most parts of the country, there is an acute shortage of dental assistants! An examination of the classified ads in the Sunday newspaper shows that the demand for dental assistants is quite strong. This is true all over the country as well. The majority of these ads require experienced applicants
Following your dental assisting training in this introductory ten-week course, you will have the confidence and skills necessary to apply for these positions. Along with your certificate, we will provide a letter of recommendation and a summary of your training experience.
Part of your training will involve the job interview itself, how to prepare for it, how to dress, what to say, etc. So often, jobs are lost during the first five minutes of the interview. We feel it is important to train you in this area as well so that you will stand out from the rest of those competing for that position.
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. Dental Assistants have been trained by this course for over 15 years and dentists from our area will call asking for students trained by this course. We will assist you to try and match the kind of office and location you are looking for to suit your needs!
Another factor that is often overlooked is in the area of job satisfaction. We have heard many times over the years from students on how much happier they are working in the dental profession as compared to their previous jobs. One student reported, “I literally feel rescued from a job I hated and a future I did not look forward to.” A parent of another student expressed thanks for giving his daughter new direction and responsibility in her life. She had been a fast food server with a small child to raise and no particular goal or ambition in life. Since completing this course, she has worked in a dental office for two years now and loves it.
All supplies, materials, teaching aids, books, class notes, etc., are supplied at no additional charge. There are no hidden costs beyond the tuition for the course.
