Ready to launch your new career in the dental assisting field? Learn everything you need to know to go to work helping dental patients in your area. At the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia located in Colonial Heights, Virginia, we have been helping aspiring dental assistants do just that.

Our training program has successfully helped people just like you get out there and start a rewarding career that can take them anywhere in the U.S. Our hands-on approach to teaching is only one of the things that sets us apart from other programs. When you join our team to earn your dental assisting diploma, you can look forward to the following:

What Sets Us Apart

  1. We teach you everything you need to know to go out and work in this rewarding field after only 13 weeks.
  2. We have been teaching students for 8 years now, with a hire rate (before graduation) at 90% (and that’s without us placing you with a practice!).
  3. You will learn hands-on in a working dental office where you can observe how patients are served and the practice is run.
  4. You will learn in a small class so that your training can be individualized and all your questions answered.

Who We Are

Your training will be supervised by our experienced dentist running a thriving dental practice, Thomas G. Schleicher, DDS, PLC. Our Office Administrator, Jackie started out as a Dental Receptionist then moved up to a Dental Assistant role. Miranda Craft
is the head dental assistant here. Erica Craft is the full-time dental hygienist at our office. Katelyn Keyser is also a full-time dental assistant at our office. And finally, Christy Peachy is a part-time dental hygienist at our office.
