Auburn Dental Assisting Program prepares students with the skills to get started as a dental assistant. We are licensed by the State of Alabama’s Department of Postsecondary Education. In addition to clinical training and experience, students receive training in front office, customer service, and job interview skills.

Instructor and Student working in Exam room

The program is taught in 10 classes in our office, Auburn Dental Spa, which allows students to learn in an actual working dental office. In addition, students are encouraged to come in during the week to get real, hands-on experience in a day-to-day dental office setting. When students graduate from our program they will receive a certificate of completion, as well as a letter of recommendation from Dr. Litkenhous.


We hope to educate and prepare students so they may become a valuable asset to your practice. If you are in need of a trained dental assistant for full-time or fill-in work we would be happy to recommend one of our program’s graduates. You may contact our Program Director, Mrs. Susie Litkenhous to assist you in the selection process. If you are a dentist/dental office looking for an assistant or front office staff we would be happy to match you with a qualified student.
