Introduction to Dentistry

An Online Training Course That
Turns Your Desk Into A Classroom

This course is great as a standalone primer for those new to the dental industry, a refresher for the dental industry professional, or as a complement to DTA’s Mini-Dental School® programs.

Whether your employees are on-site, located at a satellite office, or are on the road, they can access the Introduction to Dentistry program via any computer with internet access and a web browser. Each module is self-paced and students are able to follow along with video transcripts.
