Our 12-Week Entry Level Dental Assisting Training Program will provide dental assisting training to students as a pathway to enter the dental profession as an entry-level dental assistant.

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.

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 entry level 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.

Our Florida Dental Assisting School will provide each student with their Expanded Functions Dental Assistant Certification and Dental X-ray Certification upon completion of the Program to become a Florida Dental Assistant.
