Indigo’s mission is to train the very best dental assistants and administrators and place them in great dental offices. To accomplish this, Indigo partners closely with leading local dental offices to form the “Indigo Network.” Network offices get first access to students as volunteer externs, graduates for permanent employment, and alumni to fill in as temps when available. Indigo Network members also provide vital feedback to ensure we continuously improve our curriculum and training programs and consistently improve student performance.
No, there are no obligations or fees of any kind for joining the Indigo Network — only upside. That said, we've found that the more an office is involved, the better Indigo can help meet staffing goals. After students complete the first 8-12 weeks of training, we email Indigo Network offices to let them know that volunteer externs are available. Offices then responded if they are interested in hosting. It's that simple. Our students gain valuable real-world experience, and offices have a "trial period" before potential full-time employment. Indigo Network offices are also given access to student profiles near graduation and are invited to a pre-graduation meet-and-greet.
We hope so! We love to work with great offices. Indigo partners with leading local offices to provide training in real-world environments. Partner offices receive monetary benefits for hosting classes, which are held on evenings and weekends when offices aren't being used to serve patients. Partner offices may also encourage their best assistants and administrators to be part-time Indigo instructors, which helps these offices customize improved service, evaluate Indigo students as potential new team members, and improve staff retention. If you would like to learn more about becoming an Indigo partner office, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll contact you soon.
The Indigo Network + The Indigo Promise = The Indigo Difference
Everything we do at Indigo is shaped by the one question our students care about most — “How can I land a great job?” Unlike other schools, which are more focused on collecting tuition than preparing students for employment, we measure our success at Indigo based on how well you accomplish your end goal of finding a great job you enjoy. We accomplish this mission by leveraging the “Indigo Network” so that we keep the “Indigo Promise.” Here's how it works:
The Indigo Network – leading local dental offices that support students in three critical ways:
Network offices help shape curriculum to make sure students contribute on day one of employment
Network offices host externships, providing students with critical real-world experience prior to graduation
Network offices post open positions — actual jobs — that are available for student application upon graduation
The Indigo Promise
We are so confident that Indigo is the best way to launch a great dental career that we back up our claim with the Indigo Promise. Simply put, we guarantee all graduating students a job offer within six months of graduation or Indigo will refund 50 percent of your tuition. The Indigo Promise is a powerful way to align our financial interests with those of our students. No other school (that we are aware of) offers anything close to this Promise!
