Fall Semester 2017 - 10 Week Dental Assisting School - Salt Lake City, Utah

We can't believe that we are nearing the end of our FALL 2017 Semester!  We've had a busy year, all four of our classes were full and we met some very amazing students!  Many of whom are now very successful Dental Assistants!

Our Fall class will be graduating from our 10 Week Dental Assisting Program next week!  They are out doing their externships in wonderful dental offices throughout the Salt Lake Valley!

We are now accepting applications for our Winter 2018 Semester starting in January 2018.  If you are interested in taking a tour of our program, please send us an email to SaltLakeDentalAssisting@gmail.com or call us at 801-930-0115

What Our Students Are Saying About Us

Our favorite part about Graduation is celebrating in our students accomplishments and seeing how their confidence and progress have grown over the past 10 weeks!

Our second favorite part is reading their Exit Interviews.  We gain much knowledge from our students and take each and every comment to heart.  We appreciate our students so much!

SLADA is awesome! I have loved the way that Jeri and Terina instruct!  They give us as much hands-on learning as possible.  The classes were easy to follow and there was always someone to ask if I ever had any questions.  Jeri and Terina are all about helping you succeed!  I'm so thankful that I chose SLADA over any other school in this area.  If you're willing to work hard and have a good time, SLADA is the best choice!  McKaylla

This was an amazing experience for me.  The instructors really care for your learning experience and are always so willing to help you learn the material.  The environment you are in makes the learning fun and enjoyable.  You really get the hands-on experience, which is the best way to learn.  I feel more than ready to start my new career!  Jael

Class is almost over and I'm so sad to go.  I have learned so much over the last couple of months.  I'm so glad that I chose SLADA to introduce me to the dental field.  Terina, Jeri and Dr. Martinez along with Rachel, Amanda, Emily and Kierstin are so wonderful.  If you are interested in learning about dentistry, this is the place to start, I'm sure of it!  Melissa

I really loved attending SLADA!  I loved the small class size and hands-on training.  The instructors are awesome and make you feel so comfortable.  I made a lot of new friends and even though it was only a 10 week course.  I am sad to leave!  SLADA changed my life for the better and I cannot wait for a new career!  Emily

The thing that I liked most about this course is how small and hands-on it is.  Since it's not a big class you get more one on one time with the instructors.  Everyone is always so willing to answer any questions that you have.    Not only is it an educational experience, it's also very FUN!  I made a lot of new friends and I'd do it all over again!  Karla

I loved going to this class everytime!  The instructors were always welcoming and willing to accommodate our needs.  They taught each person how they needed to be taught.  Class was always fun and interactive and overall I rate this class 11 out of 10!!!  If you want to have fun, learn some awesome things about dentistry and meet amazing people, TAKE THIS CLASS!!!  Amy

I loved every minute of this class and learned so much in a short amount of time.  All of the instructors were great and easy to talk to.  They did whatever they could to help each student.  Also they are very supportive with getting job interviews, help on interviews and always wanted to stay updated on how our externships are going. I loved this amazing class!  Heather

The instructors are amazing!  They are very approachable and helpful.  I would recommend this program to anyone looking into working in the dental field. I learned a lot and made some friends along the way.  Thank you Jeri and Terina for dedicating y'alls time to making the program wonderful!  Ella

I loved attending SLADA, Jeri and Terina and the rest of the instructors were very personable and cared about education! They are very helpful, encouraging and supportive of us finding jobs.  I love my experience here and would absolutely encourage and recommend it to anyone who wants to go into Dental Assisting!  Christina

I liked the teaching style, very good instruction and I learned a lot.  All in all great!  Sondra

Congratulations SLADA Spring Class of 2016! Here is what they had to say about their experience!

I researched other dental assisting schools and I am so happy I chose SLADA!  Jeri, Terina and Jordan are so knowledgable! They know the profession very well and teach in such a fun way!  I got hired before I graduated thanks to Jeri!  I really enjoyed my time here and would recommend this school to everyone!  Amy

I was honestly a little scared to start this new chapter in my life, but coming to Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting was the best decision I made!  Terina, Jeri, Jordan and Dr. Martinez are AWESOME!  I love how the do everything they can so each of us can succeed in our careers.  I am truly grateful for this opportunity and I am looking forward to putting my skills into action!  Thank you SLADA! ❤️  Irene

Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting was an amazing experience!  I love how even though the program was only 10 weeks, we learned a lot!  The instructors are always willing to help you and it was great to be able to start our externships after week 5.  With this program, I received a mini iPad and it helped me study and prepare for each test. I absolutely loved my experience at this school!  Adriana

SLADA is an amazing course that I would personally recommend if you are looking to enter the dental field and don't want to go to school for a year and get a bunch of debt. It's affordable and super fast, and they prepare their students for a job in the dental field in just weeks.  Terina, Jeri, Jordan, my instructors, work alongside Dr. Martinez to cover lectures and hands on labs.  Because the classes are so small, each student gets individualized attention.  Also, Jeri was always there for me when I had any questions (even outside of class!)  As a hands on learner, I really appreciated the time SLADA takes to allow students to practice in a dental setting and engage with fellow students.  Overall, SLADA is a great choice to get started in an exciting new career!  Olga

I really enjoyed coming to SLADA because the staff was very professional, very fun!  They had a fun way of teaching and the curriculum was great.  I can't wait to go out and start my dental assisting career!  Jeri and Terina were amazing instructors. I loved every minute and can't wait to start working! Thank you guys for everything!  Gracie

Jeri, Terina and Jordan made learning a lot of fun and so easy to understand.  They have fun teaching methods and they make sure you feel comfortable and ready for your new career in Dental Assisting.  Thank you SLADA!  Ashley

I have absolutely loved my time here at SLADA!  I so glad I chose this school because I have gained a love for dentistry that I never knew I had.  I am so excited to start my career as a dental assistant!  Thank you so much for everything!  Erin

I learned many new things at SLADA.  The instructors and Dr. Martinez are so nice and it was so much fun spending time with them learning about teeth!  I would like to give my thanks to Jeri and Terina.  Amrita

Tonight is the very last night at SLADA and it breaks my heart.  I will treasure all of the things I learned here, for the rest of my life. Jeri, Terina, Dr. Martinez and Jordan didn't just teach me how to become a dental assistant, they taught me how to make and keep lasting friendships.  I pushed myself during the fast 10 week program and it paid off because I received a job offer in week 7!  I will miss you guys laughing at my jokes so I wasn't just laughing at myself!  I will always cherish the friendships gained and I love every one of you. I would recommend you to anyone contemplating dental assisting.  Thank you for more than teaching me how to start my career!  I will miss you so much!  Star

My time and SLADA was awesome!  I loved the instructors and their willingness to help.  They really take care of their students!  Jocelyn

Why Do We Use Mannequins For Dental Radiology?

Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting invests in several Dental X-Ray mannequins (Dexter) which have radiographic teeth.  This enables students to get the very best training and as much practice as possible.

It is prohibited by law to practice radiography on each other.  By using Dexter, students can evaluate their X-Rays and adjust their technique until they get a perfect diagnostic X-Ray, without exposing each other to un-necessary radiation.

We also teach and use state of the art Digital Radiography in our office. What does Digital Radiography mean?  Instantaneous images, less radiation for patients and no dark room chemicals for our students/staff.

We spend 3 full weeks in Radiology Lab and after a final exam, our students are Radiology Certified for the State of Utah.
