Required Course Materials
Every National Dental Academy dental assisting student will be provided a copy of the following required course materials:
- Concepts in Dental Assisting (Syllabus)
- Use of the Course Textbook
Other equipment, instrumentation, tools, and materials for NDA's dental assisting training will be provided onsite at the National Dental Academy host dental office campus.
National Dental Academy's dental assisting course final grades are based on a radiology quiz, a midterm exam, a final exam testing both written and clinical knowledge, and class participation throughout the course.
Performance Requirements & Probation
If a National Dental Academy student's grade falls below 70% and enough time remains in the course for the student to raise their grade (before Class 8 out of 10), the student will be offered a 2-week probationary period to improve.
A copy of students' attendance records, grades, and payment receipts will be kept on file for six years. HIPPA rules apply. If a student or employer/employment agency requests a copy of any or all records, written consent of the student is required before any records can be released.
National Dental Academy students are expected to behave professionally and considerately while attending class. NDA's dental assisting school instructors and administrators have the right to suspend or dismiss any student who engages in dishonesty, destructive conduct, the consumption of alcohol before or during class, the use of illegal drugs, or any activity deemed to be unduly disruptive to others in class.
National Dental Academy's dental assisting training course consists of 10 classes on 10 different Saturdays. Students are required to attend all 10 classes of their course session, and attendance is checked at the beginning of every class. Due to the concentrated instruction of NDA's dental assistant training, it is strongly advised to be present for all classes.
National Dental Academy student complaints are dealt with immediately and in a private interview with the instructor, program director, and/or other involved party. Call Bethany or Lindsay at (715) 298-4447 for assistance with resolving a student complaint.
After acceptance into National Dental Academy's dental assisting course, if cancellation is requested within three business days of enrollment then a full refund will be issued. If withdrawal from National Dental Academy's dental assisting program is requested after three business days following enrollment but before Class 2, all but $100.00 will be refunded within 40 days after withdrawal.
