This is a 10-week All-inclusive program designed to enable you to be job-ready in a career in Dental Assisting.  According to the Labor Department, there should be more than 91,000 openings for dental assistants up to the year 2020.  That amounts to more than 30% employment growth, which is much faster than the average for all professions.  The need for so many more dental assistants is easy to cipher:  A large aging population intensifies the demand for quality healthcare and qualified practitioners.
