 COURSE CURRICULUM

SPS Dental Academy provides training via in person lecture format at our office and in person clinical training at Trinity Community Care clinic.  The Dental Academy Dental Assisting Program is licensed by the State of Michigan as a proprietary school to train students to become dental assistants.  Upon completion of this program, graduates receive a certificate in Dental Assisting.  Additionally, graduates are eligible to challenge two of the Dental Assistant National Board exams: Radiation Health and Safety & Infection Control. 

This program has been designed with high clock hours to ensure students are educated and comprehend the materials while also demonstrating and performing dental assisting duties exceptionally well.  Therefore, students must be dedicated to the curriculum and class schedule.  We do understand that students often have responsibilities outside the classroom and the program has been designed to provide flexibility to accommodate these circumstances.    

The course will run 10 consecutive weeks, with lectures on Monday and Wednesday and clinical training on Tuesdays and Thursdays. At times, Fridays may be utilized for specific training and students will be notified in advance.  104 clock hours will be dedicated to lectures and 50 clock hours will be dedicated to clinical training. Our program packs in the information dental assistants need to know in a convenient yet condensed program.  Students will gain additional experience by completing an optional externship at a participating dental practice or clinic.  This program has been designed by a dentist for dentists; meaning our graduates will be prepared to enter an office with knowledge and clinical abilities to perform duties with exceptional confidence.
