The Dental Depot Academy Difference

Qualified Dental Assisting Instructors

Our qualified instructors have more than 20 combined years of teaching experience in academic and clinical settings, and their goal is helping students succeed. Instructors remain accessible both in the classroom and out, including during on-site clinical check-ins, and are always available for after-hours or weekend questions on homework. Learn more about Our Staff.

Clinical Dental Assistant Training with Real Patients

Many dental assisting programs require students to complete a clinical externship. At Dental Depot Academy of Dental Assisting, however, students train in-office during business hours and with real patients at our Dental Depot practices. Students have the unique opportunity to start getting hands-on experience with doctors and patients almost immediately, with a dedicated dental assistant by their side the entire time.

Affordable Dental Assisting School Tuition

Our affordable tuition includes the cost of supplies, uniform, all necessary permits and certifications, and more, at a fraction of the cost of other dental assisting programs. A concentrated curriculum and fast-paced program means you can get out into the workforce faster without incurring the financial burden of a longer course, and convenient half-day classroom instruction and clinical schedules allow you to continue working even as you pursue a new career.

Dental Assistant Employment Opportunities

Dental assistants are essential members of comprehensive dental health teams and can work in a number of practice settings, including individual or group dental practices, specialty clinics, with insurance companies, or as dental product sales representatives. Over 91% of our graduates, however, find a home in one of our very own Dental Depot locations.

The dental field is growing, and highly trained and knowledgeable dental assistants are in high demand!

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the dental assisting field is projected to grow by 19% from 2016 to 2026, which is much faster than the average job growth in other occupations, and Dental Depot Academy of Dental Assisting can teach you the dental theory and real-world skills you need to find success with this fast-growing career.

As of 2022, Dental Depot Academy of Dental Assisting boasts a 94% graduation rate and a 91.7% placement rate, both of which have grown year over year since the Academy started in 2019. Academy staff are committed to helping successful graduates find employment as dental assistants, and nearly all are placed with Dental Depot offices, an opportunity exclusive to this program.

The Dental Depot Academy Difference

Dental Depot Academy of Dental Assisting stands apart from other programs for a multitude of reasons, not the least of which are the state-of-the-art training facilities in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, with world-class labs and classrooms dedicated solely to practical experience. Courses are held five days a week for half a day, allowing students to continue working in their current jobs.

While other programs require students to acquire their own externships for clinical requirements, Dental Depot Academy offers students internships in one of the various Dental Depot locations with a dentist and trainer. Assignments are made with care, pairing students with a location close to home on their schedule. This hands-on teaching practice with patients is not offered anywhere else in the state, allowing students to meet all clinical requirements through the program itself and giving them 120 hours of clinical hours as opposed to the 40 offered through other programs. It also helps establish students in local Dental Depot offices for potential future employment post-graduation.

Dental Depot Academy is dedicated to preparing students for professional success. Students receive training in how to market their personal skills, including resume building and interview skills that they can take with them wherever their new career takes them, and Academy staff remain committed to helping successful graduates find employment, often at a Dental Depot location.

What Our Students Have to Say

Since holding its first classes in January of 2019, Dental Depot Academy of Dental Assisting has graduated 140 dental assistants, the majority of whom were successfully placed with Dental Depot offices.

Now, with a new branch opening in Tulsa, Dental Depot Academy of Dental Assisting hopes to continue growing into other locations, expanding the opportunities for more students to pursue an exciting and rewarding career in dentistry.
