Applicants with a complete file are selected for admission based upon their test scores, grades in high school and college, ability to complete the application process, and dental assisting experience. If test results are low and classes are recommended to improve reading comprehension levels, applicants will be advised and proof of successful course completion must be provided prior to acceptance into the program.
Expenses beyond tuition include but are not limited to: activity fees, uniforms, lab fees, student organization membership, immunizations, cost of Basic Life Support (BLS) class, licensure fees, and student health insurance.
Immunizations and Basic Life Support (BLS) certification are required prior to clinical participation. Adult, infant and child CPR and AED certification and immunizations must be current throughout the program. Students must be free of tooth decay and active periodontal disease.
