Dental Assistant Jobs: Short-Term Courses Versus Long-Term

Both long and short term Dental Assisting courses have their pros and cons depending upon your particular circumstance. Short intense courses like ours are generally about one- quarter of the tuition cost and are completed in half to one-third of the time. The licensing process for both short and long term courses are extremely thorough and labor intensive requiring complete documentation and approval by state governing boards.

da-other-03

Short term courses work well for highly motivated individuals looking to get into the work force as soon as possible. Regardless of which program you complete, you are still entering the work force at entry level pay until you prove yourself. We see the best and the worst from both short and long term programs, so it boils down to individual motivation, personality, attitude and work ethic.

I believe this is what makes our students so terrific, you can tell by the photos they take during class that they are serious and happy about learning and making the extra effort to work hard. They become friends quickly and support each other as a group.

Our class environment is a very upscale Dental office, so the students gain a genuine respect for the cost of equipment and a feel of working in an actual office. And of course incentives and occasional prizes and contests break the monotony of all the study study study!!

I’ve been attending this school for almost 7 weeks and it’s been wonderful. Not only do the instructors teach you what you need to know.. They surely care and share their own experiences to get us ready for our dental assisting futures. I look forward to going to school and I’m beyond blessed to have been accepted. Dr. McDonald and his wife Shelia are setting these students up for success. Not too mention they are such a nice Christian couple  I highly recommend this program :)- says Sunni F.
