Dental Assistant School

Train for a career as a dental assistant at the Dental Staff Institute.

Career Training for Dental Assistants

  • Become a valuable part of a growing healthcare profession.
  • Use your skills to help your patients.
  • Solve problems and work independently.
  • Create further opportunities for yourself to learn and grow.
  • Enjoy the satisfaction of having a profession, not just a job.

Right now, there are dental offices throughout the Charlotte metro area that need well-trained, motivated dental assistants to join their team. If you are organized, mature and personable, you could be one of them.

Dental assistants must be familiar with the hundreds of techniques, materials and instruments that are used on any given day. Dental assistants are a vital part of the dental team and are the extra hands that make “four-handed” dentistry feasible. Without chairside dental assistants, most dental procedures would be nearly impossible to perform.

A Dental Assisting Career is just Months Away!

Taking an accelerated learning course with the Dental Staff Institute is a great way to enter the field of dental assisting. Start your career as a dental assistant without spending tens of thousands of dollars and a year to two of your life.

We help you obtain the skills necessary for an entry level position as a dental assistant in only a few months. You do not have to quit your present job while you learn. Classes are on Saturdays. You will be studying during the week in addition to your classroom and hands-on training in our office at a quick pace. Our Modern Dental Assisting classes include all of the study materials needed to succeed as a dental assistant.

Advanced Learning for Dental Assistants

If you have moved from another state and need North Carolina dental assisting credentials or if you would like to expand your skills, our dental assisting school offers several different one and two day classes.  North Carolina requires that nitrous oxide sedation monitoring, radiography and coronal polishing are taken here even if you have credentials from another state.

We also offer group sessions for employers in the Charlotte Metro area who need to certify their assistants in North Carolina. As dental professionals, lifetime learning is the key to providing the best care possible for our patients. Expanding your skill set makes you a more valuable employee as well as providing you the satisfaction of growing in your career.
