Assist to Succeed Lake Oconee is currently enrolling students for a new 12-week session, which begins August 17, 2019. Assist to Succeed offers hands-on training for those looking to become a successful dental assistant.

Demand for Dental Assistants is on the Rise

Assist to Succeed Dental Assisting School LogoAccording to the U.S. Department of Labor, dental assisting is one of the fastest-growing medical careers, with demand expected to grow steadily over the next several years. Oftentimes, however, it can be difficult to break into dental assisting because the available programs are too expensive and take too long.

“Assist to Succeed is a 12-week program that is held on Saturdays,” says Dr. David Bradley, co-owner of Lake Oconee Dentistry and Assist to Succeed Lake Oconee. “That makes the training more convenient, efficient and economical for people looking to start a new career.”

Assist to Succeed students receive 80 hours of lecture and lab with a practicing dentist in a fully-operational dental office. Additionally, students will also be able to learn and observe procedures at specialty offices. Students will earn their Georgia radiology certification and CPR certification as part of the course.

The Saturday classes will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lake Oconee Dentistry office, located off Highway 44 in Greensboro, between the Publix parking lot and the movie theater. The school is certified through the state of Georgia Non-Public Post Secondary Education Commission.

“Our graduates will be able to get a job in the field because they will have hands-on experience,” says Dr. Bradley. “Our ultimate goal is to get them hired, and we’re going to give them the tools they need to help make that happen.”

Now Open for Enrollment

The program is only accepting 12 students into this next session, as it is important to us that each student receives the individualized attention needed for success. Tuition includes books and supplies. If you are interested in registering for this session, please call 706-347-2635 no later than Friday, July 27th in order to reserve your spot and discuss the next steps.
