FAQ

You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers.

Check out a few of the most common questions our Dental Assisting Academy has received below.

Hopefully you can find the answer you’re looking for. If not, let us know and we’ll do our best to find out for you.

Every question and comment is important to us, so don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to help.

Are You Legit?

Yes! Of course! We offer the SAME certification as those other “big schools with long programs”.
It is a State of Florida requirement to offer the Expanded Functions Dental Assisting Certification, which is what you will achieve with us!

Our application, curriculum and credentials have been reviewed and approved by the Florida Department of Health and Board of Dentistry on January 31, 2012 for the Dental Assisting Program Pursuant to Rule 64B5-16.0002(1)(b) and we are also licensed by the Commission of Independent Education and Department of Education located Tallahassee, Florida. Look up our number #4801.

What Will I Recive After Completing the 8-Week Program?

After you complete the 8-Week Expanded Functions Dental Assisting Program and 65 Clinical Externship Hours, you will be awarded you Expanded Functions Dental Assisting Certification by the Florida Board of Dentistry and Commision of  Independent Education.

Do You Accept Financial Aid?

As an accelerated post-secondary private school we are not eligible to offer financial aid. Our wish is to keep this school short and attainable for the working person wanting to career change. To accept financial aid would mean we would have to meet the government’s criteria for accepting their financial aid which would mean turning this course into a 5 day a week 9-5 program, which would become unreachable for so many. We offer a payment plan for tuition to help those who can not pay tuition in full.

What Are Your Statistics of Success?

Our Commission of Independent Education requires for us to report all of our students and their success here at the Academy.  We have a 98% Retention Rate (Students who complete the program), and a 97% Job Placement Rate (students who have found jobs as Dental Assistants). Since being Established in 2011, we have had over 700 Students Succeed with us at the Academy! 

How Much is the School Tuition?

Depending on the program you selected will depend on the Cost of Tuition. The 8-Week Expanded Functions Dental Assisting Program cost $4600, The 1-Day EFDA cost $430, The 1-Day Radiology cost $295, The 1-Day CPR & BLS cost $65, and the 6-Month Online Program starts at $690. We Offer payment plans for whichever class or program you choose!

What Do I Need to Apply?
  • For the 8-Week Program, you will need 1. online application 2. High School Diploma or GED 3. Form of ID

  • For the 1-Day courses you need a minimum of 3 month of Dental Assisting Experience in or out of the state of Florida with a practicing Licensed Dentist.

How Can I Book a Visit?

What if I'm Under the Age of 18?

That is no problem! We have many students that want to join under the age of 18, all we ask is that a parent or guardian comes with you to the Academy for the enrollment process.

Program was amazing and so informative. Found my dream job within the 8-week program with the help of Miss Marina and Miss Kennedy! I could not thank the two of them enough for everything they have done for me. Got to make great friends and memories throughout the program that I will remember for a lifetime! Could not recommend them more!!!!

Before deciding to attend DAAPB, I wasn’t sure what career path I wanted to take so I was taking a chance on myself and the academy. Luckily, it was the best choice I could’ve made and I’m thankful for every minute of it. Miss Kennedy and Miss Marina made the learning process feel more like something to look forward to every week rather than just another day at school, and I excelled because they’re great teachers. If you’re debating whether or not you want to come here, I say take your chances and go for it, I don’t regret it at all and I recommend it 1000%. 10/10, 5 stars. Glad to be apart of the Class of DAAPB Fall 23’.

Ms Marina and Miss Kennedy are so amazing! I learned so much in the span of 8 weeks and was taught a handful of skills that I will be using in my dental assisting career. I love all the hands on concepts and felt very welcomed. Would recommend to anyone looking to be in the dental assisting field.

At first I thought this was too good of an option to be true. But now that I’ve happily found my clinic and passed my exams. I know this place is the best to get your assisting education. I will forever be thankful for Mrs. Kennedy, and Mrs. Marina.
