How do I apply for an internship?

Unlike many assisting programs the school will take care of this for you.  NO worries on your end!


Many will have an internship at the state of the art dental office of Dr. Blackmon at Lake Wylie Dentistry, or at the School itself. As our internship roster grows we will be offering more internship opportunities.

What does a certificate from the school entail?
As a graduate of the Lake Wylie School of Dental Assisting, you will receive a certificate of dental assisting, a CPR certificate  and a dental radiology certificate. With good grades, this certificate can also make your candidacy more competitive when applying for dental hygiene programs or dental schools.
Do you offer any tuition payment options?
