About Our Course

Since 1990, Dental Careers Institute in Portland, Maine, has been training the next generation of dental assistants. We are a licensed trade school in both Maine and New Hampshire, offering comprehensive dental assistant courses to prepare and place those looking to join the rewarding field of dental hygiene. Upon completion, all of our students are ready to take the Dental Assisting National Board's Radiation Health and Safety exam.

With more than 30 years of experience, we have developed a stimulating and fast-paced course that relies heavily on hands-on training. Students work in a state-of-the-art dental practice, studying under instructors with active experience, degrees in dentistry, and memberships with the Maine Dental Association and Board of Dental Licensed Examiners. You will be able to enter the workplace with the skills and experience you need to be a chairside dental assistant.
