If you need a quick way to get into a health care job, dental assisting might be right for you. The program starts a new cohort of students each summer, followed by fall semester. You'll be job-ready by January!
Lakeland's dental assisting graduates are then eligible to take the national certification exam to become a Registered Dental Assistant, known as a RDA.
Contact our program coordinator to find out how to become a dental assistant and join this growing profession.
I graduated with my associate degree from Lakeland while at the same time graduating as Valedictorian from high school. I plan to attend the Holden University Center to complete my bachelor's degree in criminal justice. Layce Artman College Credit Plus
One thing I really love about Lakeland and being in the honors program is that the teachers have small classes and they are very devoted to their students. My friends at four-year institutions are taking the same intro classes that I am, but in large lecture halls with a lot more students. Michelle Timms Associate of Arts
