We know we have competition and that there are several dental assisting schools in the area to choose from. The burning question is why choose us? What makes us different?
We are here to tell you why our dental assisting program sets us apart from others.
We offer small class sizes which students LOVE since they get more one on one attention. Our classes are held in a real dental office where our instructor’s work. This means if you need extra help with something you are struggling with, we are always here to help. This is a huge advantage. We offer open labs which allow students to come in during patient hours and experience assisting with real dental procedures under the watchful eye of a dentist.
Our program is hybrid and there’s no need for you to attend classroom lectures. You will login to your computer and watch video lectures for your first 4 weeks. Then, you’ll attend our hands-on lab training sessions at the clinic for 8 weeks.
We also offer low tuition costs. This is super important to us because student loans are at an all-time high! We believe a skilled trade like dental assisting should be under $5,000 and includes books and supplies . This means there are no hidden costs and you get your scrubs and all materials needed throughout the entire course. We also feature convenient, no-credit-check in-house financing with weekly, monthly, or 4 equal payments at zero-interest.
Upon graduation you will be DANB (Dental Assistant National Board) radiology, as well as CPR certified.
Our program also requires a 40-hour externship/internship. This means you will get additional real-world experience/observation before you finish the program. Obviously, when you are first learning everything, it is at a slower pace so taking part in the externship allows you to see several weeks as a dental assistant in real life. We will place you into a participating dental practice so you won’t have to hunt down your own externship experience as with other schools.
Your OceanPointe campus also helps with job placement! We have so many dental offices reaching out to us asking us for dental assistant graduates. There are so many jobs out there right now it’s crazy. That’s a good thing though. It means you can find a job when you graduate, or before! It is not uncommon to be offered a job right out of the externship site or to go on three interviews and receive two job offers.
We want to make our students as successful as possible. Our instructors are the best of the best and super passionate about the dental field. We are here to help you!
