Why Us?

We have a network of dental specialists that you will be able to observe. You can see how dental assisting differs within each of the dental specialties. If you find that General Dentistry is not for you, see what is involved with Orthodontics, Periodontics, Endodontics or Pediatric Dentistry. Our network of dental specialists are excited to let you visit their offices and help you find the niche that is right for you!

Our instructors are highly qualified and have 70 years of combined experience in the dental profession. They are caring and supportive and want you to succeed in achieving your goals. It is important that you know our instructors are Dental Assistants and Registered Dental Hygienists currently working in the dental field. This ensures that you stay current on the latest dental materials, procedures and technology.

Our curriculum is second to none. It is comprehensive and covers all facets of Dental Assisting. Our curriculum is being used successfully, in over 60 dental assisting programs throughout the United States. Our program utilizes a hands-on educational approach where students learn through participation. Our students learn the fundamentals of all phases of dentistry and the basic skills, knowledge and technical proficiency necessary to assist the dentist in the various operative procedures. To read testimonials about the curriculum, please visit our “Testimonials” page.

Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting invests in several dental X-ray mannequins (Dexter) which have radiographic teeth. This enables our students to get the very best training and as much practice as possible. It is prohibited by law to practice radiography on each other. By using Dexter, students can evaluate their X-rays and adjust their technique until they get a perfect diagnostic X-ray.

You will have the opportunity to accompany our office to the Utah Dental Association’s Annual Session. This is a great place to get continuing education and network with other dental assistants and dentists. It’s a fun conference that we all look forward to every year.

We understand that many students have full time jobs or are busy raising families at home. Our convenient night time schedule meets twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) from 5:30 to 9:30 pm for only 10 weeks.

Tuition is affordable and includes all you need! There are no hidden fees or costs. We have many payment options available: Cash, check, money order, credit cards, and payment plans are available. Financing is available through Mountain America Credit Union. See our Application Page for details!

You will receive a set of scrubs (top and bottom), with Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting’s logo, embroidered on the pocket.

Students paying tuition in full, prior to the start of classes, will receive a free new iPad Mini, complete with curriculum downloaded to enhance our students learning experience.

Students will also receive bleaching trays for themselves, at no additional cost.

50 hours of externship are required to receive your certificate of completion. If your personal/family dentist will allow you to do your externship hours in his or her office, great! If not, we will help you find an externship office or you are welcome to do your externship with Dr. Martinez.

Our instructors will help you create a personalized resume, highlighting your strengths and skills. We will prepare you with interviewing skills and techniques to help you through the job seeking process. We will also keep you updated regarding dental offices that are in need of qualified dental assistants.
