Dental Assisting Training Program

TheDental Assisting Training Program, our flagship program, has been taught in schools since 2002. It has been successfully presented in a private dental office and at a community college. Each year the number of enrollees increases as the reputation of the program spreads. One school offers the program during 3 different sessions throughout the calendar year.

If program graduates looked for employment in a dental office, most received a job offer as a dental assistant either by the end of the course or within a few weeks thereafter. Notably, these graduates earn $4 to $5 per hour more than dental assistants who had not completed this program (ie, applicants who had taken a lecture only or internet only dental assisting course, untrained applicants hired into a on-the-job-training in a dental office). The tuition, including application fee, charged at The Dental Training Center was $2600 to $2800 and included handouts and materials. Cost of textbooks was additional. Consequently, the student’s cost was earned back in approximately 5 to 6 weeks employment (at an average $12.50-14.50 per hour).

The Dental Assisting Training Program teaching materials are supplied by the 4 Learning Group, LLC to enrolled students at the licensed school offering our program. Course content is updated regularly. The materials included as part of the license with 4 Learning Group include:
