- 2021 FALL Session - Modern Dental Assisting
September 11, 2021 - December 18, 2021
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Fall 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 September 11th, 2021 through December 18th, 2021. Please note that we skip class on Saturday October 30th, 2021 and Saturday November 27th, 2021. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this course is a hybrid one; the first 6 Saturdays are LIVE Zoom lectures from your home and the remaining Saturdays are hands-on days at the school. We provide all PPE. We believe that until everyone is vaccinated, this hybrid course will continue so that everyone stays safe. A laptop or tablet is recommended for the live Zoom lectures, but it is not required. Some lecture information may be difficult to see from a cell phone.
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 and Defibrillation 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 by email to schedule an informal interview/school tour (generally on Wednesdays, at 4:50PM). *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 YOU in order to complete your application, once you have been accepted. A few days before the session starts, you will receive an email with information about how to set up your school portal so that you can upload your transcript for us to see.
We offer this 13-week Saturday course twice a year. We only offer Saturday Sessions. The next session will be our Winter 2022 Session which will start towards the end of February, 2022.
Payment plans and discounts for paying in full are available upon request and can be discussed at the tour/interview. We accept all forms of payment.
We look forward to meeting you!
