From the ? of the owner Cynthia Curtis…

How much does dental assisting school cost?

We ask for a $200 holding spot fee which is required to hold a spot in the agreed session. Next, a $1,000 down payment a week before the first class, if you are not paying your tuition in full, we call this a goodwill payment. After the down payment is made, we offer a monthly in-house tuition payment program. Payments can be made with cash, a money order, bank transfer or credit card. We accept all major credit cards, (Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express). There will be a 3.5% processing fee on all credit card charges.

We also know life happens, and sometimes it is hard to have the tuition paid in full while you attend the session. Cynthia the owner of the school wants all of our students to succeed and grow in the dental field, and not to be worried about having to put the reaming balance on a credit card or something along the lines of that. We are aware that some schools use Care Credit. Care Credit is not always 0% interest. You the student could pay up to 26% using Care Credit. Therefore, buyers beware.

We have put into place for our students the ability to carry a second contract once you complete the course; we hold the contract in-house for an additional 12 months with a one-time 10% charge on the reaming balance when the second agreement is signed. We take pride in seeing our students succeed and not worrying about finances as they move forward into the dental field.
