Become a Dental Assistant in Florida!
Our 12-Week Dental Assistant Training Program will provide dental assistant training to students as a pathway to enter the dental profession as an entry-level dental assistant.
Before a dental assistant can be qualified to work with a dentist, it is important to provide basic dental knowledge to the future dental assistant. This 12 week dental assistant training program teaches students the knowledge and professionalism that it takes to be a part of the dental workforce in this exciting healthcare field. This accelerated course allows an interested student to acquire the basic entry-level dental assisting knowledge to begin their new career in as little as 12 weeks.
We realize that some people learn better from a hands-on training approach rather than a lecture approach to education, therefore the Academy for Dental Assistants has developed a curriculum for dental assistant training for this type of learner. The course is delivered in a hybrid format allowing students to attend class 1 day per week to be taught dental assisting skills while completing the book work, homework and quizzes online at home on your time. The course is divided into 4 sections, each section will have a Clinical Assessment from the procedures you learn in class and an Online Written Test that will come directly from the textbook on the chapters assigned to that section. Hands On Clinical Assessments are done in class; the Written Tests are done online. This course does require the student to spend about 6-8 hours per week outside of class time to complete workbook and textbook assignments. The cost of the Program includes your Florida Expanded Functions Dental Assistant Certification and Dental X-ray Certification from the Florida Board of Dentistry once you complete the course and internship hours.
