    1. Hands-on training in a real dental clinic
      True hands-on experience assisting a real dentist treating real patients. Our live patient clinics
       offer a one-of-a-kind experience for dental assistant students that can not be simulated by dummies, mannequins and textbooks. Our Arizona hands-on dental assistant training program is the only program in the state to include live patient clinics into the school curriculum!

    2. Training in Digital Radiography and HD Intra Oral Scanning (the future of dentistry!)
      AIDA students learn to take real digital x-rays and pantographs with the latest High Definition x-ray systems. You will also train with the industry latest Ultra High Definition intra oral scanners! Other dental assisting schools don’t have state-of-the-art digital radiology equipment and intra oral scanners and may only teach outdated analog x-ray techniques.

    3. Hands-on training in Dentrix – the most widely used software in dentistry
      Most other dental assisting schools don’t have Dentrix and just teach basic computer skills, not specific to dentistry. AIDA has a multi-station dental software laboratory where students are taught extensively to use computers and Dentrix dental software.

    4. Outstanding staff and faculty – learn directly from experienced dental professionals
      Our faculty make our Arizona hands-on dental assistant training program the best in the state. Dr. Eldon Hastings, school owner and director, was awarded “Best Teacher” by the Arizona Private Schools Association. All of our instructors are required to be presently working in dentistry.

    5. Best dental assisting school in Arizona
