We will not be hosting any more 1-day NC Dental Radiography CHALLENGE EXAM dates in 2016. Anyone needing NC Dental Radiography Certification in 2016 will need to join the 2-day (Saturday/Saturday) course. Please refer back to our website periodically for 2017 CHALLENGE EXAM dates.
Guess what?! The Dental Staff Institute is now able to offer a CHALLENGE EXAM for NC Dental Radiography certification. This one-day “course” is open to any dental assistant from another state who already has taken a dental radiography course and is able to send that dental radiography certificate to our school. It is much quicker and less expensive than taking the full two-day North Carolina Dental Radiography certification course. You will not need to sit through a day of lecture, and we give you a textbook to use before the written exam. Easy, breezy!
All of the owners and staff at the Dental Staff Institute would like to wish all of our amazing graduates and awesome students a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are happy to be involved in your lives and pleased to help you.
We are so thankful that you chose our dental assisting school to begin your dental adventure or simply upgrade your dental assisting skills! A toast to everyone for a successful and fulfilling 2014!
Drs. Malz and Dr. Woodman, Diana, Lisa and Amy
Our instructors are not only DANB certified, but they are also working in the field all week with dentists and their patients. They perform all sorts of procedures routinely, including xrays, braces, Invisalign, surgery, pediatric dentistry, fillings, implants and crowns and dentures. If you do not know what some of these procedures are, you will by the end of our 11-Week Course! We also encourage you to fulfill some of your externship requirements with them upon graduation. See how they work in the real world!
Our instructors are DANB (Dental Assisting National Board) certified which is the highest honor that a Dental Assistant 2 (DAII) can have in the United States. We feel that this is an important aspect of our dental assisting school and sets us apart from the other schools. Our instructors are specially trained to teach you and are available to help any of our graduates become certified when they are ready. We hope that all of our Dental Staff Institute graduates will attain this honor!!
We have had an unprecedented response to our Modern Dental Assisting 11-Week Saturday Course to become a DAI this Summer. We have filled our class beginning in the Fall, 2013, and it is a wonderful group. Keep in mind that we do have a waiting list for this session and we are now accepting registrations for the next session beginning in January 2014. Don’t miss out! We look forward to working with you!
Did you know that the Dental Staff Institute is one of the only entry level dental assisting programs (DAI program) that includes the Nitrous Oxide Analgesia Monitoring Certification course? We have recently included it into our Saturday 11-Week program so that you have an added certificate upon graduation. Nitrous Oxide Certification is a plus when applying for any dental assisting job, but in particular pediatric dentistry and oral surgery. We are proud to offer this certification class to you, as well as to existing dental assistants and hygienists in North Carolina.
We are so proud of Anna S. She is a recent graduate of the Dental Staff Institute and is now working in a general dental office in Monroe, NC. Way to go! You will be a great dental assistant!! Other grads, please let us know where you are working. We would love to hear from you!
