The American Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that dental assistant careers are projected to grow by over 16% between 2016 and 2026. This increased opportunity is often attributed to industry growth in the oral care industry afforded by increased access to quality dental insurance, as well as an aging population which is prone to oral health problems.

To help aspiring dental assistants to prepare for a rewarding role in the oral care industry the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia, located in n Colonial Heights, Virginia, offers a comprehensive training plan. It starts with a 78-hour lecture series led by our experienced dentist, Dr. Tom G. Schleicher.

This phase of the training process typically takes just 13 weeks. Upon completion of the lecture series, you will then be provided with a 50-hour internship to help provide you with the real-world experience that general dentists and oral care specialists demand from the dental assistants they hire.

At this point, you will be certified as a professionally trained dental assistant ready to take on a rewarding role in the oral care industry.
