Class Size and Length
In order to give 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 applicants and the time of year. Our courses last for eight weeks with classroom instruction one day (Saturday) each week. It is important to set aside time for studying at home throughout the course.

Tuition does include all necessary suplies, instruments, and study materials. Tuition for the orthodontic assistant course is $1800. A deposit of $100 is required to reserve your spot and the remaining balance is due 1 week prior to the first class.
