"SLADA is amazing! From day 1 when I first toured the school, the instructors gave me all the information I needed and more!  They also kept in touch with me weeks after the tour. The instructors are so professional and personable at the same time. I was a little nervous to start a new career but I made one of the best decisions of my life!  Dr. Martinez is always sure to answer our questions, he is such a great dentist and a great teacher. Terina and Jeri are two of the funniest and best people and make you feel so comfortable.  They helped so much with job placement and everything along the way that I didn't want to graduate!  Overall my experience at SLADA was again, amazing!"   -Miranda

"I loved my experience at SLADA! My favorite part would have to be the wonderful instructors.  They are always going out of their way to make sure everyone fully understands what we are learning.  On top of that, the office is very clean and comfortable. SLADA gets two big thumbs up!"   -Jessica

"SLADA is a great place to learn about Dental Assisting!  The instructors are great and truly care about their students.  They are willing to help and are truly dedicated.  I made so many new friends while attending this program and everyone was so friendly.  The labs help you learn all the concepts of Dental Assisting.  It was a fun and awesome learning experience!"

"I've really enjoyed coming to The Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting. We had a lot of fun and learned things quickly. The 10 weeks fly by and it's easy to pick up on the procedures during lab time.  I've met some really nice people and made some really great memories."    

"First of all, I want to thank all of you very much for teaching and helping me to learn so many things that I didn't know before.  I added so much knowledge to my dental education and career here in the United States.  Being with you for 10 weeks was a great experience.  It was a very short time and I wish I could spend more time with all of you to learn more!  For me, it was amazing to learn about the advanced technology in the United States compared to my country!  I loved and enjoyed this time with you and again, thank you so much for your support and help. Jeri, Terina and Dr. Martinez, I wish you the best in your dental careers!"   -Yeruna (Dentist from Mongolia)

What are our Graduates saying about our program!

"Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting has been amazing!  I feel that I have learned so much.  Every class you get to do hands-on training in the lab and you're not just doing lectures all class.  They really support all types of learners.  I have had a dentist compliment me and tell me that I know much more than people who have spent more money and gone through a 10 month program.

The instructors are fantastic!  They are so helpful and are always willing to answer questions that we may have.  Dr. Martinez is fabulous and he is always so happy to teach us or answer our questions.  Everyone is so great and nice, everyone feels welcome here!

I truly feel that this is the best Dental Assisting program out there.  So good that I got hired on my second day of my externship!"

Congratulations 2014 Winter Semester Graduates!

We had a great group of students for our Winter 2014 Semester and they all received their Certificates of Completion!  

Many graduated with additional honors for Perfect Attendance and Outstanding Excellence and Achievement.  One student had the highest overall percentage in the history of SLADA, graduating with a 99% overall score.  This is quite an achievement as this score averages, Lecture Tests, Lab Tests, Practical Tests, Externship Evals and of course Finals.  

Also, we were so fortunate to have a student who is a Dentist in Mongolia take our class.  She recently moved to the United States and wants to continue a career in the dental field.  She has a wealth of knowledge and was a great asset to our program!  

Congratulations to our Graduates!  Please keep in touch and know that we are always here for you!  We are so proud of your hard work and dedication!

What does it take to become a GREAT Dental Assistant?  Ask yourself these questions: 

Am I compassionate and empathetic, do I truly care about how people feel?

Would I have a good chairside manner?  Could I alleviate the nervousness that patients sometimes experience when coming to the dentist?

Do I love working with kids?  Could I make a difference in a Pediatric Dental Office?  Or do I love surgery?  Assisting the Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon during the intricacies of surgery?

Am I detail oriented?  Do I like things organized and neat?

Do I enjoy working with people, helping them improve their health and smile?

Do I value teamwork?  Would I like having input on how a dental office can run smoothly and efficiently?

Do I want to just work part time?  Would I love free/reduced dental care for me and my family?

If you answered yes, then a career in Dental Assisting could be right for you!
