Why Choose DATS to Start Your New Career as a Dental Assistant?

The Dental Assistant Training Schools (DATS) of Maryland and Virginia were founded by Dr. Marvin Becker in 2002. Dr. Becker started this program with two goals at heart:

  1. To address today's shortage of dental assistants, and
  2. To develop a comprehensive, hands-on dental assistant training program that was accessible to any student, from those just out of high school to those considering a career change.

It is always our top priority to deliver our students three unique advantages you won't find in any other training school: preparation, convenience, and cost.
