The DATC Program is rigorous. We offer you the chance to learn all the skills you need to succeed as a dental assistant. In addition, we share the knowledge and characteristics you need to present yourself as the best candidate for any entry level dental position you chose. And there’s a big need for dental assistants in the market. NOW IS THE TIME to get into the dental field!

We are so excited about the possibility of welcoming you as a DATC Student for Fall 2024!
