What Makes Our Dental Assistant Program So Special?

Our dental assistant training program provides an opportunity for a successful career with a work-life balance. Living a healthy and balanced lifestyle is something that all of the instructors at DOT2South spirit for. Quality, hands-on training is a core value implemented throughout the 12-week program and E.F.D.A. class. The founder wanted her dental assisting course to be unique and personal. Every student is different and we take that personal approach to ensure all of our graduates are prepared for a job in the field of dentistry the day of graduation. 

DOT’s Northside location has flourished over the past several years with over 25 graduating classes through the program. The demand for individuals seeking a long-term career as well as growth within the industry proved that Dental Office Training 2 South is for everyone! Men and women of all ages have taken the program. Some students take the course to become a dental assistant, others take the course to gain as much experience as possible before continuing on to dental school.
