Weekend Dental Assistant School vs Green Bay Technical College
Becoming a dental assistant is a highly rewarding and exciting career path. Investing in your future by starting a new career can be incredibly difficult for adults working full time. Weekend Dental Assistant School understands your busy schedule, which is why our unique program can be completed in just 10 Saturdays. You can continue to work full time to pay your bills and support a family, while studying and getting real hands-on experience in the rewarding field of dentistry. This commitment to our students sets WDAS apart from Green Bay area technical schools, which require a huge time commitment and incredibly high tuition costs.
Dental Assistant Job Demand on the Rise: Meet it With a Qualified Education
Dental assistants are in high demand, and this growth is not expected to slow down anytime soon. The Wisconsin Employment Projection Report predicted approximately 240 dental assistant jobs will be added to our community every year. Dentists are constantly seeking well qualified individuals to join their team. Weekend Dental Assistant School is here to help you acquire the skillset and knowledge which will make you a highly sought after candidate.
Many of our students are returning to school after a hiatus. Don’t let the idea of going back to school intimidate you. At WDAS, our classes are designed to be accessible to everyone. We understand our students have other obligations and commitments which cannot be compromised. However, providing for your family shouldn’t prevent you from beginning a new career path to better your life. We structured our dental assistant course curriculum to accommodate busy schedules. In just 10 consecutive Saturdays, which run from 8a.m. to 5p.m, you gain the knowledge and experience needed to begin a new career. Once you enroll, you can expect each class to be broken into two halves. The first half is based around a lecture, with the second half reserved for clinical lab time. Our students will get hands on experience in both the labs and lecture, while getting real-world advice and tips from instructors who have extensive experience working in the dental field.
Gaining a Career Faster and For Less
Weekend Dental Assistant School is approved by the State of Wisconsin Education Approval Board.
