What is the advantage of a 10 week course vs. a 12 month course?

You will pay thousands of dollars more for a year long program sitting in classroom lectures. With our intense and comprehensive curriculum, you will receive hands on training from Day 1. Our instructors know what is important for you to learn. They will help you receive an education and proper training in a working dental office so you can find a job and start earning an income faster! Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting offers a short term solution to what can be a long term program.

Is your school registered with the State?

I have no dental experience, what if I find the program too hard?

We want you to succeed! Our instructors are available to help you with any difficulties you might have. We will take the time necessary until you understand the concepts to be a valuable dental assistant. We will make ourselves available to you during classroom hours or after hours.

Where are you located?
