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 Central 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
) 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'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
promise that you won't have to commit yourself to working hard and
studying. The DANB
exams are not simple, but with the proper guidance
and preparation you can do well on them.
We can be reached Mondays
through Thursdays from 8AM - 4PM and on Fridays from 8AM - 12:00
Noon. If you

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.

for additional information whether you live in another state or are
planning to move to the US in the future. We also have
information specifically for international
planning to relocate to NJ as well.
