Vocational training for dental assisting are considered accelerated and typically fast-tracked condensing the length of the training. Schools throughout Wisconsin offer various lengths of dental assistant training programs and we are here to help you choose the right training program to prepare you for a career in dental assisting.

Understanding the language of a dentist and dental hygienist is crucial to succeed as a dental assistant. 4-week programs are simply too short and do not allow students to gain the knowledge in everything they need to know. Not only is it important for students to learn from textbooks and lectures it is critical for students to have the necessary hands-on experience.
