Us Vs Other Dental Assisting Schools

Why choose us vs other dental assisting schools?

Why would you choose us vs other dental assisting schools? You have a handful of options. But what makes our school different? Why are we the better choice?

While there are many schools not all schools share the same quality program or certificates. In this page we’ll dive into why we’re the #1 Dental Assisting School. Further, we’ll go over what makes us different and what are some things you should keep an eye on.


Us Vs Other Dental Assisting Schools – Dental Board Approved

Not all dental assisting schools are Dental Board approved. The Dental Board of California licenses only those who are qualified. When looking you’re looking at a dental assisting school, make sure that they are approved by the California Dental Board.

At Santa Clarita School of Dental Assisting, we are approved by the California Dental Board. Some schools in our area are not. Make sure to do your due diligence. Only the best dental assisting schools are Board approved.


Us Vs Other Dental Assisting Schools – BPPE

BPPE or the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, oversees California’s private postsecondary educational institutions by conducting qualitative reviews of educational programs and operating standards, proactively combating unlicensed activity, impartially resolving student and consumer complaints, and conducting outreach.

Our dental assisting school is part of BPPE. Before BPPE, it was fairly simple for private institutions, like ours, to get diplomas via the State Department of Education. BPPE was created to help regulate private institutions by making them meet harder requirements and standards.

Today’s Bureau is generally responsible for protecting consumers and students against fraud, misrepresentation, or other business practices at private postsecondary institutions that may lead to loss of students’ tuition and related educational funds. Additionally, BPPE establishes and enforces minimum standards for instructional quality and institutional stability for all students in all types of private postsecondary educational and vocational institutions.

Make sure your school is accredited through the State or that it’s regulated by BPPE, like Santa Clarita School of Dental Assisting.


Us Vs Other Dental Assisting Schools – Certifications

Many of our competitors don’t give you the number of certifications that we do. It’s important to know that you need to be certified to perform certain tasks or use certain equipment. Our school was created by Dr. Kelly. Her thought was to create dental assistants that dentists would want to hire.

In fact, not only has her office, Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry, hired many students but many of our students get hired before they graduate.


What kind of certifications will you receive in our program? Here’s a list:

When you’re looking for a dental assisting school to attend, make sure you ask them what kind of licenses or certificates they offer. This leads us to our next point.



The reason our program is so good is because it was designed by a dentist to create dental assistants that she would hire. We prepare you to have the skills, licenses and certifications you need to get a job. As we stated above, most of our students get hired before they graduate.

Our school has a reputation for molding great dental assistants. Not only that, when dental offices are looking to hire assistants, ours stand out. Why? Because compared to other “dental assistants” ours are actually certified. Our dental assistants have the necessary certifications and licenses to do the job that is required. Our students are ready to enter the workforce, contribute and thrive.

If you’re going to spend your hard-earned money and time to invest in a school, you should go to one that is going to get you ready to start your career.


Tuition & Length of Program

It is true that other programs have a similar length as ours, less than three months long. However, our dental assisting program offers more certificates and licenses. Secondly, we are one of the most affordable dental assisting schools in our area. We always have great deals, just call and ask. Also, we have financing available.

Some schools run 8 hours or more on Saturdays. That’s not a fun way to spend a weekend. That’s why we offer classes later in the afternoon, twice a week. So you can have some work life balance.


Continued Education

Our program will make you a certified dental assistant. However, that’s different than being a Registered Dental Assistant. The good news is we offer help with continued education so that you can become an RDA. For more information on continued education, please be sure to contact us.
