Abilene Dental Assistant School was founded by a Dentist due to a lack of qualified Dental Assistants in today’s current job market. We provide real-world Dental Assisting skills which are both comprehensive and hands-on so that you will be ready to work upon course completion.
The hands-on approach that our school takes is especially unique to the field. You will learn the fundamental skills of Dental Assisting in a actual Dental Office, rather than a classroom which prepares you to work side by side with Dentist after course completion.
Our goal is to prepare you to start working right after graduation. Hands-on training is our main focus throughout the course. Our low instructor to student ratio will prepare you on the multiple facets of Dental Assisting.
What makes us different:
- Classes are on Saturday: This will allow you to work during the week to help pay for school
- Tuition is affordable: We charge a fraction of what other schools charge.
- Our school takes place in a Dental Office: What better place to learn Dental Assisting than a Dental Office.
- Payment plan are available: We offer affordable payment plans that require no credit check.
- Job placement available after graduation: After graduation we want you to find a job as a Dental Assistant, so we offer job placement services in order to assist with the transition after graduation.
