2018 FALL Session - Modern Dental Assisting
September 15, 2018 - December 15, 2018
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This is the last of two sessions offered in 2018 of the Modern Dental Assisting course to become a DA1 (entry-level dental assistant). This course meets all day on Saturday (8AM-5PM)for 11 Saturdays. Class is held from September 15th, 2018 through December 15th, 2018. Please note that there is no class on Saturday October 13th, 2018 to study for the midterm, there is no class on Saturday November 24th, 2018 for the Thanksgiving holiday and there is also no class held on Saturday December 1st, 2018 to study for the final exam. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ATTEND ALL 11 SATURDAYS THAT CLASS IS HELD in order to graduate from the course. Class size is kept small (approximately 12 students) to provide a lot of hands-on training and individualized attention. Our very personable and approachable instructors are both certified DA2s with DANB recognition and also licensed dental hygienists; they work during the week in a general dental office and are thus able to evaluate and teach what is truly most important to know in the “real world.” When you graduate you will have all of the necessary certificates to begin working as an entry-level dental assistant in NC. In addition, you will also obtain a nitrous oxide analgesia monitoring certificate which is not required to begin work, but it is helpful and will make you more marketable. **THE COMPLETE COURSE FEE IS $3,230.00 AND COVERS EVERYTHING YOU WILL NEED FOR THE COURSE (INCLUDING TEXTBOOKS, HANDOUTS, PENS, NOTEBOOKS, NAME PIN, EXAM FEES), OTHER THAN A PAIR OF SOLID/NEUTRAL SCRUBS.** Application fee of $65 is nonrefundable and is due online at the time you register. Payment of the $65 application fee DOES NOT mean that you are automatically enrolled in the course. You cannot schedule an interview/tour until we have notified you that we have received your registration form and $65 application fee. Upon acceptance into the program an additional $395 will be due at the informal interview/tour to reserve your seat. Only after you have come for a tour/informal interview with the doctor/director and you are told at that time that you have been accepted will you be eligible to pay the $395 deposit that will hold your seat in the session. The remaining balance can be split into two payments ($1,385 due by July 15th, 2018 and $1,385 due on the first day of class–September 15th, 2018). We do not charge you anything extra for this payment plan of $3,230 split into the 4 payments. THE ONLY GRANTS THAT WE ACCEPT AT THIS TIME ARE FROM MECKED CAREER PATHWAYS. An OFFICIAL HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT OR GED needs to be sent directly from your high school to our school before the course date. This course is geared towards students with no dental experience. We look forward to meeting you!
