Dr. Robert N. Pickron established his first Orthodontic Assisting Training Program in 1996 as a result of conversations between orthodontists. He recognized that a well-trained orthodontic assistant helps reduce stress on both the patient and the doctor, thus providing better orthodontic care and service. The goal was to fill a need for professionally trained orthodontic personnel. In 2001, he purchased the Orthodontic Assistant Training School and changed the name to Orthodontic Assistant School of Atlanta, which is certified with the Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission of Georgia. While the basic framework for this curriculum is patterned after successful orthodontic assisting programs in other states, OASA is truly unique as it provides hands-on dental assistant training in a clinical classroom setting.

We conduct our courses in a practicing orthodontic office, Family Orthodontics, in Duluth, Georgia. You must be a high school graduate with a GPA of 2.0 or higher to enroll for our certification for dental assistant courses.

Class Size and Length
In order to provide better one-on-one attention, we limit the number of students accepted per session. However, the class size is ultimately dependent upon the number of orthodontist assistant applicants and the time of year. Apply today for our orthodontic assistant certification course!

OASA is a unique program designed to provide students with the “hands-on” training and experience you need to excel. All classes are scheduled on Saturdays to accomodate working students and are held in a practicing orthodontic office to provide a realistic learning environment.
