About Pacific Northwest Dental Assisting School

Since 2008, the programs at Pacific Northwest Dental Assisting School haves helped hundreds of students from Camas, Vancouver, Portland, Washougal, Oregon City, Tualatin, Beaverton, Gresham, Tigard, Hazel Dell, Hillsboro, and Battleground launch their dental assisting careers

Our experienced instructors create a fun, encouraging, exciting atmosphere where students can develop the clinical skills and personality needed to succeed as dental assistants.

In addition to classroom training, Pacific Northwest Dental Assisting School offers the rare opportunity to observe real dental procedures at our on-site affiliated dental practice. However, there’s so much more to being a great dental assistant than hands-on skills. This is why our instructors focus on the human side of the dental field, focusing on empathy, helping patients relax, and maintaining a positive attitude.
