Indigo is unlike any college or post-secondary school. Our priority is to train the very best dental assistants, then place them in great jobs within our network of offices.
We form class sizes based on actual job openings in the Indigo Network, only admit those students we think are capable of filling dental assistant positions, and then train them with all the skills and qualities our dental industry experts have identified as important for today’s modern offices. We’re so confident Indigo graduates will land a great job that we offer the Indigo Promise — our post-graduation job placement guarantee.
Each graduate is placed in an office where they will thrive and succeed. We work with dozens of modern offices when placing graduates, below are a few of the most competitive offices to join.
After graduating from the dental assistant program and getting placed in your first job as a dental assistant, you may consider advancing your career even further by becoming a registered dental assistant (RDA).
An RDA is a dental assistant that has obtained essential skills and passed the state’s licensing exam which enables them to perform a wider variety of skills than an unregistered dental assistant.
When you’re ready to take the next step, Indigo offers more advanced Registered Dental Assistant (“RDA”) certificates and an RDA exam preparation course. To learn more about the career path of a dental assistant, check out our guide to become a Registered Dental Assistant
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
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 assistant career that we back up our claim with the Indigo Promise. Simply put, we guarantee all graduating students a job offer or externship within six months of graduation or Indigo will credit 50 percent of your tuition (a maximum of a $4,000 credit). The Indigo Promise is a powerful way for us to align our financial interests with our students. No other school offers anything close to the Indigo Promise!
