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.
I enjoyed this a lot
Best Decision of My Life!
They really have it together…
I really liked that this class is smaller. There was a lot of individual attention and the instructors gave everyone personal attention to make us comfortable. The whole staff is very knowledgeable and the materials were very good. I will be back for my coronal polish in the future!
i would recommend this course to anyone.
Dental Radiography Class
The instructors are professional and friendly
We had an amazing time while learning. There was nothing I would improve and it was a wonderful experience.
Best Teachers Here…
Best teachers I could’ve asked for & taught me everything I needed to know to start my career! Found a job 2.5 weeks after graduating! If you are wanting to become a dental assistant, I suggest to go through this awesome school!
A fun class for Coronal Polishing
I took a coronal polishing certification class due to me moving to North carolina. Amica and Laura were wonderful!! Such a fun and helpful class! having the coronal polishing as a DA2 makes me more marketable and increases the opportunity to find work in different offices.
Great radiography class!
The best course i have EVER taken…
Everything was awesome!
I loved this course! Everybody that i met was so friendly. The doctors and instructors made me feel comfortable even though the pace was really fast. I’ll see you in a couple of years for coronal polishing when I’m a DA2! ;)
One of the best programs I have ever attended.
Lisa, the lead dental assistant and teacher of this program, is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and downright fun to be around.
Her classes are straight forward and very fast paced, but done so in a way that allows you to know what you’re doing when class has ended.
You spend several weeks (every Saturday 8-5 depending on the lecture for that week) doing both hands on, and book work, earning your certifications as you go.
Lisa is always there to answer your questions, and stays after class to help if you need it. You also get access to her personal number where she can be reached whenever you need help. Which, in my personal opinion, is amazing.
Dr. Malz and her husband, Dr. Woodman, put a great deal of time and effort into these classes and the material that is needed to push their students towards their end goals, whether it be just dental assisting, hygiene, or, in my case, medical school (hopefully one day).
You should know that this program is accelerated, so you aren’t going to have your hand held or be spoon-fed answers. Either you keep up, or you don’t. That’s all on you.
The amount of respect I have for Lisa, Dr. Malz, and Dr. Woodman is incredible.
To dedicate their time and energy to helping adults of all ages towards careers in dentistry is amazing, and I am BEYOND thankful to all of them.
All in all, my time at the Dental Staff Institute was wonderful and I learned more than I could have hoped. 5/5 stars.
This was a good move…
Loved this course and loved the school…
Eveything was great about this course. I loved it and wouldn’t change my decision for anything.
Wow, everybody was invested in whether we were understanding the materials. Even though it was fast paced, we had help every step of the way and everyone made us comfortable as we were becoming able to apply all of these new things. I am grateful that I have this new opportunity and already have job offers!
Everyone wanted to be there.
Patience and kindness.
I had an amazing time!
The instructors were so friendly and we had an amazing time while learning!!
I absolutely loved my experience…
I absolutely loved my experience with the Dental Staff Institute! The instructors, specifically Lisa, were so helpful in making sure that you understand all of the material. I loved the way that Lisa made the course materials and hands-on.
Take the chance, you won’t regret it!
I LOVED the Dental Staff Institute!
Lisa was super!!
She is very knowledgeable in the field and her expertise with real life scenarios made the relevant and fun. The class was convenient since it was on Saturday and the hands-on was helpful with lots of attention from the teachers.
This boosted my confidence!
My office manager wanted me to be able to float and take x-rays so I needed to get my NC certificate. I am glad that I chose DSI. The staff was great and they really helped me to feel comfortable even though I was new at it. I loved my whole experience and it really gave me confidence.
What a Great School!
Great school!!! Everyone is so eager to help you learn… Going here there’s no room for failure with such awesome people!!!!!!
Everything was great
The teachers made everyone feel comfortable and worked hard with students to make sure that we understood the materials. My class members were great and all of the materials were interesting. Overall it’s a life-changing experience and I am looking forward to starting my career!
DSI is a great opportunity
Everybody was very helpful and I learned a lot in the past 3 to 4 months. I love that we came in for the hands-on part that really help me a lot! By far so excited for the next step thanks to DSI!
