About Us

If you want a great hands on, small class size, educators willing to help you succeed and know your name you have the right place. Look no further!! I walked into Altrain only because I heard the ad on the radio. Instantly, I felt like this was the place to get my career path on the right track. My first person I ran into sat down and told me everything I would need to do to start school all the way to the end and how they would help place me for a job.


I highly recommend Altrain dental assisting academy, it is a great school and only a short 13 weeks. I took night classes and loved the amount of time that we actually got practice everything hands on. Everyone at the school is very nice and helpful.


I absolutely love Altrain! I’m confident the instructors and small class sizes will make for an easy 13 weeks! The hands on learning really helps things stick in my memory. I’m so excited to see where my future will go after graduation. Thanks Altrain!


I’ve been currently attending Altrain dental school and I love it! Everything about it is absolutely perfect! The teachers, the class size and all the hands on learning we do. I couldn’t be more happy that I choose to go to Altrain.


This school is awesome, the instructors and staff are so nice and caring and really do everything they can to make this possible. Class was fun and hands on and you learn so much in a short period of time!


Great school! They have the best instructor and staff. The classes are small, it’s hands on, and it’s only 13 weeks.

Great instructors and a great hands on program! Highly recommend going to Altrain!
If you are lost on what to do for your career or what school to attend, I 100% recommend you choose Altrain! The staff is amazing & teach you everything you need to know in order to be successful in this job field. I already had 3 job offers only a week after graduation! They are amazing!
I had visited and toured a couple other dental assistant schools besides Altrain and none of them compared to Altrain. The facility is definitely made to look like a dental office 100% and with a lot of space to work. If you want somewhere reliable and with friendly staff this is the place for you. In 13 weeks you will get the right amount of information to be successful in your dental field career! Totally recommended!
I too did a lot of research on Dental Assisting schools before I chose Altrain. For starters they were the ONLY school that actually offers everything that you need to be successful in your career. X-ray, Coronal Polish, CPR and Dentrix (front office too)! They have more than double the amount of days and hours of all the other short programs. That’s why everyone passes the state exams. The other schools say they do it too but there is no way they can find the time in 1 or 2 days a week. The school is so clean and looks just like a dental office. And when Altrain says the offer job placement, they mean it!!! My resume and cover letter are fantastic! Tannis sent me on 4 job leads before graduation and I had a job a week after I finished the program! When it comes to Dental Assisting this is the ONLY school to even consider!!!!
