Looking to begin your career in the world of dentistry? Check out Smart Smile Training Center.
The Smart Smile Training Center program offers students a career path other than college at a fraction of the costs at our institutions. Smart Smile's program is only 10-weeks long and they only require attendance in a classroom setting on Saturdays for eight hours. During that classroom requirement their students get four hours of lecture, and four hours of hands on training with their staff of more than a combined twenty five years of experience.
Their staff takes pride in not only ensuring their students are well versed in the ins and outs of the technical aspects of the dental industry, but also provide real world scenarios. Smart Smile also has a job placement program in place to assist in securing employment for all students once that have completed all their course requirements. There are also payment plans available to support the financial requirements of the program. Individuals applying for this course are required to:
A) Interview with an admissions counselor and have a tour of the facility.
B) Be at least 18 years of age.
C) Present proof of secondary education (high school diploma or GED certificate).
As a Dental Assistant student you will be required to purchase scrubs to wear during the program.There is also the Externship Requirements, An externship is intended to further qualify your training and to provide exposure to an actual working environment. You will have the opportunity to participate in the externship program, on a day-by-day basis, in multiple dental practices to provide some exposure to the various dental specialties. The externship program will become available after the sixth week of the Dental Assisting course is completed. A list of participating practices will be provided to you, or you may choose other Dental practices if desired. You may choose days and specialties in which to participate any time after the initial six weeks is completed. Externship availability is entirely dependent upon participating practice availability and schedules. Many students have been hired as a direct result of externships.
They require at least 40 hours of externships; however, if you are not yet employed in the dental industry, they highly recommend continue doing them, as time permits, until a position is secured. Extra hours of externships on resumes are very important. The more, the better, as externship hours equate to experience. Also, externships can be considered working interviews in the right place at the right time, they recommend you always consider them as interviews. Smart Smile is in the business of helping people. Their goal is to help as many students as possible become certified, licensed Dental Assistants in the state of Texas and secure a well paying career in the Dental industry. Please contact them with any questions or concerns.
