Dental Assistant School
So, you’re looking into attending a Dental Assistant School. But first you probably have a few questions, and that’s perfect because we have a few answers! We are Santa Clarita School of Dental Assisting located in Santa Clarita, CA, you know that Netflix show “Santa Clarita Diet”? That’s where we live and if you haven’t watched it, please do because I want them to bring the show back for a few more seasons, support the cause!
Further, we are located down the street from Six Flags on Tourney Road. And we’re not just some random school! In fact, our school was founded by a Dentist. So as a result, the school is right next to our professional dental practice, Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry.
Is Our Dental Assistant School Licensed?
We’re a private institution licensed to operate by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.

What Will I Learn In Dental Assistant School ?
First, you should know that this isn’t some copy and paste curriculum. In fact, our School was created by Dr. Kelly Smudde. She wrote the entire curriculum from scratch, focused on real world situations and procedures. As a result, she kept in mind what her and her peers look for in a Dental Assistant.
Here’s a quote from Dr. Kelly. “I started this school for the everyday person. The ones who work full time jobs, have children at home, or are just burnt out at their current job. We wanted a program that was efficient, well rounded, and put qualified and professional Dental Assistants into the Workforce ASAP. I think it is a great option for "non-traditional" students that don't do well in a typical book learning setting. Our students are up and moving most of the class, getting that incredible hands-on experience."
Here are the four main things you will learn.
