About Class Cancellations

Dental Assistant Services is a friendly, knowledgable, and highly respected dental assistant training program that caters to people of all backgrounds as well as skill and experience levels.  We are a family owned and run business that has served Dental Assistant Services office buildingCentral NJ and beyond for over 30 years.

We pride ourselves on not only providing relevant and accurate information and services, but also emphasizing a personal touch.  At Dental Assistant Service we know you as a person.  You'll never be just a number here.

Please be aware that this is the only location where "Gail" works.  While our reputation may be nationwide, we operate strictly out of a single location in Farmingdale, NJ.  Click here for more information.

Our goal is to help you to work towards obtaining any and all levels of NJ-based dental assistant credentialing you may be interested in.  This includes helping you to prepare for and obtain a dental x-ray license, to obtain a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA  [DANB Disclaimer]) certificate, and to become a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA).  Learn more about the different credentials, licensing bodies, and requirements to get the job you want by clicking here.

Dental Assistant Services has been consistently recognized for the high percentage of students who complete our courses and go on to pass a DANB (Dental Assisting National Board  [DANB Disclaimer]).  DANB's role is in part to create and administer examinations that are part of the requirements to obtain your dental assisting credentials in NJ.  Most recently we were notified that in 2010 a full 100% of the students who took our Radiology course went on to pass the exam allowing them to obtain their dental x-ray license.

Of course, we cannot guarantee your own success or promise that you won't have to commit yourself to working hard and studying.  The DANB  [DANB Disclaimer]exams are not simple, but with the proper guidance and preparation you can do well on them.

We have also received excellent feedback from our students over the years and have had great success in placing students in dental offices.  While we expect our students to be willing to take the program seriously, we also maintain a casual and comfortable atmosphere.  Casual attire is permitted, though we encourage you to dress appropriately.  Some individuals who have chosen to wear less have frequently found themselves to be cold.

Please feel free to look around our website.  There is a lot of information available here.  This site was designed to be easy to navigate. Nearly all of the pages on this site are accessible with no more than two mouse clicks.
