Our Programs

Designed with Job Placement in MIND

A Dental Assistant Program Like No Other

Indigo is unlike any college or post-secondary school.  Our priority is to train the very best dental assistants and office administrators, then help them land great jobs!  Because of this, we design each dental assistant course with “the end in mind.”  This means 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. We also offer more advanced Registered Dental Assistant (“RDA”) certificates and an RDA exam preparation course.

Our Method

At Indigo, we believe in the convenience of online learning and the value of hands-on, in-person training, which is why we teach using an accelerated "hybrid" model. You will have weekly coursework online supplemented with weekly in-person training sessions, focused on the skills you learned during the week. This model provides you with the critical repetitions you need to confidently perform your best starting day one. Our curriculum is designed, and taught, by dental industry experts who have identified the critical skills necessary for modern dental offices. The flexible online curriculum and weekend hands-on training classes enable you to easily transition from your current job or schooling into an exciting new dental career. The in-person clinical training and externships are held in leading local dental offices. In the end, Indigo's programs ensure that you become an effective and confident dental professional.

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 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 refund 50 percent of your tuition (a maximum of a $4,000 refund). 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!
