Our Story

Academy for Dental Assisting Careers was founded 23+ years ago in Longmont, CO with the concept of starting a business that gave back to local surrounding hometown communities and would have a positive impact on other people's lives.   Over the years the Academy for Dental Assisting  Careers staff worked hard to build an educational, career-minded institution within the dental industry which has proven to be highly successful.  One of our main goals is to take a motivated person with little or no dental experience and teach them the basics of Dental Assisting.  "We offer a quality education for people who are eager to either start or expand a rewarding dental assisting career."
