Dental Assisting

Dental assistants work closely with the dentist, and sometimes dental hygienist, to fulfill a patient's needs. Dental assistants are responsible for a wide range of tasks, requiring flexibility in the work place. These tasks include: patient care, clinical skills, technological skills, sanitation, and sterilization. 

Our dental assistant programs in Tennessee offer a flexible schedule to accommodate any student. Our day program is a 12-week program, Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Our night program is a 12-week program, Monday through Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

We take pride in our small dental assistant classes, ensuring that each student has adequate time with their instructor. Students begin working in the dental clinic from the very first module, learning all aspects of dental assisting from radiology and impressions to making temporary crowns.  The cost of tuition covers everything you need for the program, including uniforms. Our students will receive first hand experience through externship with another office or an internship with our on-campus dental office. Upon completion, Excel Dental Training Institute has 100% job placement.
