Dental Assistant Program Application

Initiate the first step in your dental assisting career by applying for the Dental Assistant Program. Please see How to Apply before applying to the Dental Assistant program.
All application materials must be received on the designated deadline date and time. If the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, then it will be the following business day.

The Dental Assisting Program qualifies for Arkansas and Federal student aid, however, it does not qualify for the Academic Challenge Scholarship (Lottery Scholarship) due to program being a technical certificate.  Discuss your individual situation with the Financial Aid Office. Apply for Financial Aid as soon as possible for priority processing.
Note:  Students who will be attending clinical rotations while enrolled in a professional program at the Center for Health Professions will be required to have a drug screen performed, either prior to admission, or prior to attending clinical rotations.  Students who test positive for drugs (including medical marijuana) will be denied access to the clinical rotations and will consequently be either denied acceptance into the professional program or dismissed from the professional program.
