Philosophy
There are many job opportunities for the qualified dental assistants to assist dentists in the dental profession. Although one desires to be trained in this profession, however, there are challenges that prevent them from attending school. It is difficult for most people to attend school on a full time basis because they have to work to earn a living. The expense necessary to finance schooling in a major college is also another reason most people are discouraged in pursuing further education. We feel that the dental assisting program offered at our school will meet these challenges. The nighttime or weekend class schedules are designed to accommodate working students. The very affordable tuition fee will also solve the financing issues for most prospective students. Students are accepted regardless of sex, race, age, marital status, religious creed, ethnic or national origin.
The Dental Assisting Curriculum is an instructional program providing a twelve-week Dental Assisting Course consisting of 120 hours of lecture and lab and a 32 hour externship with a practicing dentist. The program utilizes a hands-on educational approach where students learn by doing. The course includes lectures on fundamentals of general dentistry and the basic skills, knowledge and technical proficiency necessary to assist the dentist in the various operative procedures performed in a dental clinic. Completion of the program will allow the student to have enough training to qualify for an entry level position in a dental office. We are approved by the state Board of Dentistry for Georgia for expanded duties. Our course will include certification for radiology. 
We provide job placement and our students are getting jobs.
