About Us

Originally founded in Atlanta in 1987, Auburn Dental Assisting Program is the premier dental assisting program in the East Alabama/West Georgia region. Courses are taught, not in a classroom, but at Auburn's most progressive dental practice, Auburn Dental Spa. You will receive instruction from dental professionals who teach and utilize the most current methods.

Although there are a few other programs to choose from in the surrounding areas, why pay $10,000 or more for a 6-9 month program where you will sit in the classroom for the first 4 months? Our course puts you in the clinic on the very first day, working with dental instruments and equipment.


Auburn Dental Assisting Program, established by Dr. Brad Litkenhous, utilizes an unparalleled method of teaching dental assisting in a rapid, but organized manner which is easy to master. Our training methods have been tested and proven over a 20 year period.

“I really enjoyed the program. Without the knowledge I learned there I would not have my current job. I'm happy that I have finally started a career I can have for the rest of my life!”

Our course is unique because we are the only one taught in a dental spa. You will learn state-of-the-art methods in assisting, Dental Radiology, customer service skills; and you will be exposed to the other services our dental spa has to offer. We are licensed by the State of Alabama's Department of Postsecondary Education. Upon completion of the course, students are given a Certificate in Dental Assisting and a letter of recommendation.
