DAPA Creates Confident Professionals

Everything we teach our students is industry standard material. We won’t waste time teaching anything outdated or unused in a dental office. We get working dental professionals to come in and share stories of real life experiences and helpful tips to the class, so you know what you are learning in our classes will be applied when you land your new dental assistant career.

Unlike most dental assistant programs, we teach our classes in a real dental office. Not only will you learn everything you need to know, but you will get comfortable using those skills in real dental rooms! Our Orlando, Florida dental assistant school gives students a step up on the competition.

At DAPA, you are given all the tools and information you need to succeed in a career as a professional dental assistant. During the course orientation, you will learn what is acceptable to wear to every class and what equipment you should bring.

The graduating students from Dental Assistant Pioneer Academy have a high rate of success getting hired as dental assistants for dentists, orthodontists, oral surgeons, and more!

We want you to feel comfortable and be able to professionally describe your newly learned skill-set. Our dental assistant courses are extremely hands on because we want you to feel confident upon completion of the program.
