Comprehensive Dental AssistingStart your new career in as little as 7 months
Comprehensive Dental Assisting Program
In approximately 16 weeks (day classes) or 24 weeks (night classes) our students train as Expanded Duties Dental Assistants before completing a 300 hour Externship, in which they further develop their skills in a trusted dental practice for academic credit. 70% of this program involves hands-on learning.
In preparation for their new career, our Director of Career Services works with each student prior to graduation in order to build a professional resume and practice interviewing skills. MedQuest College is determined to provide our students with the tools they need to be successful, which is why we offer every graduate lifelong career coaching services.
We provide students with two classroom environments in which they can learn: clinical and business. By providing both business and clinical instruction, MedQuest College graduates have substantially more hands-on experience and knowledge than typical dental assistant graduates.

I would recommend MedQuest to everyone I know
I leave every day having learned something new. Every day we do something hands-on and the teachers are wonderful. Our small class sizes help to grasp the concepts better. The available technology and resources really help you to understand the dental office better. I have absolutely no complaints about this school.

MedQuest has everything you need to learn.
I love the school. I would recommend to everyone that likes small classes and really good teachers. I have learned a lot, and by the end of my classes, I will be prepared for a good job at a dental office. It is all because I was well-prepared by the instructors. It has everything you need to learn.
