Job opportunities for trained dental assistants are readily available in today’s marketplace.

Graduate Opportunities

Many of our students who have been hired during the course got paid to do their intern/externships because the Dentists want to make sure the student will stay with them after graduation!

Dental assisting careers are a popular choice for many reasons, including job stability, quick entry to the workforce, an excellent dental assistant salary, and the ability to help others. If you are interested in a rewarding career that allows you to have the satisfaction of helping numerous patients improve their smiles and their dental health, the Dental Assistant School of Memphis program will prepare you to play a key role in the functions of a dental office by performing many tasks to support dentists and dental hygienists.

We give our students the training, knowledge, and skills required to get an entry level job as a Dental Assistant. Nearly every student gets a job within three months after graduation because the need for Dental Assistants is very high throughout the entire United States. Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that all students will get hired after taking this course since we have no control over individual personalities and motivation that are key to acquiring a job.

Job Placement

We are in partnership with organizations that are always looking to hire our graduates. After week 1 you will learn in a hands-on clinical environment. We then help match you with a medical office so you can start your career as a successful nursing aide upon completion of the program.
