- 2021 Winter Session - Modern Dental Assisting
February 20, 2021 - May 22, 2021
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Winter 2021 Session of Modern Dental Assisting to become a DA1 (entry-level dental assistant) meets for 13 Saturdays (8AM-5PM). Classes for this session are from February 20th, 2021 through May 22nd, 2021. Please note that we skip class on Saturday April 3rd, 2021 for the Easter holiday.
YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ATTEND ALL 13 SATURDAYS IN ORDER TO GRADUATE.
No prior dental or medical experience is required. You must be at least a high school graduate (or equivalent). After successful completion of the course (including 12 dental externship hours), all of the necessary certificates to start work as an entry-level dental assistant in NC will be given (Dental Radiography, OSHA and Infection Control, Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office, Dental Assisting 1, CPR for the Healthcare Provider). In addition, you will also obtain a Nitrous Oxide Analgesia Monitoring certificate.
**THE FULL COURSE FEE IS $3,565 AND COVERS EVERYTHING YOU WILL NEED, OTHER THAN A PAIR OF SOLID SCRUBS (any color) and TEXTBOOKS. You can find textbooks inexpensively/used on Amazon.**
The application fee of $65 is nonrefundable and will be applied towards the full course fee if you are enrolled. Payment of the $65 application fee does not mean that you are automatically enrolled in the course. Once we have received your application and fee, we will contact you to schedule an informal interview/school tour (Wednesdays, at 4:45PM). *We recommend that the deposit of $875 be paid at the end of the informal interview/tour to hold your spot in the course, as the session fills up quickly since we accept only 12 students per session.
Additionally, an OFFICIAL high school transcript or equivalent will need to be sent directly from your high school to our school in order to complete your application, once you have been accepted.
We offer this 13-week Saturday course twice a year.
Payment plans and discounts for paying in full are available upon request and can be discussed at the tour/interview.
