About DATS

The Dental Assistant Training School of the Rio Grande Valley (DATS/Rio Grande Valley) provides a new and innovative course in dental assisting. We give you the best, most basic, foundational knowledge and skills necessary to start your new career with minimum time and expense. In addition, school hours are designed to allow you to be able to learn without interrupting your current job or daily responsibilities.

The advantage you have in training at DATS is that you will be working with practicing dentists and experienced dental assistants in an actual dental office. DATS is part of Harlingen Family Dentistry, a large and successful dental practice in the Rio Grande Valley. Here we will give you exposure to a wide range of techniques, materials and dental knowledge that you will need for success. You will obtain the on-the-job skills that practicing dentists see as “core necessities” for getting a job.

Job opportunities for trained dental assistants are excellent in today’s marketplace. While no one can guarantee job placement, the dental profession is currently facing a shortage of trained dental assistants. If you examine the newspaper ads for dental assistants, virtually all jobs require experience. How can you get a job without experience, and how can you get experience without a job?

With our course, that gap can be bridged in a minimal amount of time during convenient hours and at a reasonable cost.
