My 13 week dental assisting program within the Atlanta area has encompassed my passion and put years of experience to work. Now in addition to my private practice, I operate the school with the entire course completed in just 13 weeks. “Compared to other schools, Dental Assistant School of Atlanta students not only finish in less than half the time, but pay a mere fraction of current tuition fees” in other schools.
