How big are our class sizes?

Our classes are small! We absolutely love it because it allows a one-on-one learning environment.

What does a day in the program look like?

Our course classes are super fun and engaging! We begin with a lecture and hands-on presentation in the morning.  We then move to the operatory and actually do the procedures we’re learning about.  We find that hands-on training is the absolute best way to learn for all students.

How many students that graduate get jobs?

Hiring ratios are always a variable, but it is consistently very high at our sister schools. 100% of our students that graduated last class had jobs lined up before graduation! It may range anywhere from 86% to 100%. Many dentists call us for hiring needs, and we love to introduce candidates. Some of our students go on to Dental Hygiene school as well. Getting our students jobs is our first priority!

How much money will I make?

In Utah the average rate of Dental Assisting is $14/ hr-$17/hr.  We see the range begins at $12 and up to $19 for high functioning Dental Assistants. Most offices utilize a bonus system, and have other compensation benefits.

Do I get to work with a Dentist?

Yes! Once you have completed half of our program you are ready to begin your Externship at Elevated Family Dentistry, or at another office of your choosing.

Dr. Larsen is one of the best and most trust worthy dentists around! We believe he is the perfect Dentist to help our students learn, become an effective assistant, and to achieve their goals.

Do you help with Job Placement?

Yes! Placement assistance is available. Training includes interviewing skills and resume preparation, lists of websites to search for positions, and training on how to present yourself professionally.  Our primary goal is to get our students hired!

How can I graduate in 10 weeks?

We find our students are incredibly successful in our fast and hands on learning approach.  When students sit behind a desk for six months then finally get out into a real office, they are terrified from only being ‘book smart’.  No chance to be scared at our school, you perform real procedures from day 1!

What does it take to be a good Dental Assistant?

The biggest thing is to be willing to learn and grow each day! Dental Assisting is a very unique and rewarding career that allows personal interaction with many people throughout the day.
