The Right Career: Dental Assistant 2017-06-26T22:22:24+00:00


The Right Foundation

The Dental Staff Institute was formed to provide you with the basic knowledge and technical proficiency to enter the dental field. This foundation will help you achieve the expertise necessary to succeed immediately as a dental assistant upon graduation. We also offer advanced skills courses and continuing education to those who wish to take their career to the next level or who need their North Carolina dental assistant certifications in order to obtain a great position in the Charlotte area.

The Right Size Classes

Class size is small and spaces are limited at the Dental Staff Institute. We purposefully keep class sizes smaller than our competition because frankly, you can’t learn all there is to know about becoming a dental assistant at such an accelerated pace without a lot of attention from your instructors.

The Right Instructors

Speaking of instructors, we feel that ours are the best in the business. Our instructors are DA II’s (Dental Assistant Level II) who have combined experience of over 25 years. All lead instructors have sat for the DANB – the Dental assisting National Boards. They have not only been in general practice but also oral surgery, periodontics, prosthodontics and orthodontics as well. This diverse background gives our students a well-rounded experience.

The Right Track

Did you know that many schools simply buy a “canned” curriculum that they are reselling to you (at a big profit)? We have created our training from scratch using our years of experience in the dental field and input from our own dental assistants and instructors. We have based our curriculum on “Modern Dental Assisting”. This is the same textbook used by many junior and technical colleges like CPCC for their year-long DA II courses. Though the testing model and skill development is the same, we have  formulated our own materials to fit our much faster pace. We are also excited to see our curriculum evolve as we use more technology to find even better ways to teach!

The Right Idea

In the end, the knowledge you have gained and will bring to your new career is a direct reflection on how well we have done to prepare you. We genuinely want our students to succeed. When you succeed, we do also! Our directors and instructors take a personal involvement towards your goals because after all, your goals are our goals.
