Dental Assistant Externship

Indianapolis Dental Assistant School 40-hour externship program provides our students with the real-world experience they need to become confident and qualified dental assistants. The externship portion of our course allows our students the opportunity to work under the direct guidance of experienced dental professionals in a local dental office. Students are eligible to begin their externships after class 3. Although we encourage our students to find their own externships, our Student Success Specialists are here to help our students identify potential opportunities in the area and assist with applications.

What Do I Get After Graduation?

We are accredited and regulated by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, so our program provides everything needed to practice as an entry-level dental assistant once you pass the state RHS exam at the end. When you're done, you'll receive a Certificate of Completion showing you went through a training program, you'll be BLS (CPR) certified, and you'll get your Radiology Certificate once you pass the state RHS exam.
