Apex Dental Assisting in Logan, UT was established in 2005
Dr. Bingham and his staff realized there was a great need in Cache Valley for trained dental assistants.
Apex Dental Assisting is more than just book work. We believe hands-on training is the best way to learn. Our program is outlined with over 20 projects; ranging from cleaning a patient’s teeth, taking x-rays, placing a rubber dam, assembling a syringe, placing sealants, and (our students favorite) making custom bleach trays. During the course, students will also be required to build a resume and receive coaching on both the resume and the interviewing process.
With classes only being held 3 times a year, we’ve had over 250 students with a current graduation rate of 96%. Students take our course either to succeed as a dental assistant, help their chances of getting accepted in a Dental Hygiene Program, or even just for fun. Whichever the reason; Apex Dental Assisting is here to help our students obtain their goals.

How long does it take to graduate from a dental assisting school?
Dental Assisting Schools differ in structure and time. Some assistant schools will require over 1000 hours of classroom study and many others here in Utah are as little as 80 classroom hours.
Why The Difference?
Utah State dental licensing board has not expanded dental assisting duties in Utah as far as some other states are currently allowing, limiting by law the in-office procedures that dental assistants can legally do. Dental assistants in Utah, even without expanded duty options, are the key to everything done in every office in this state. If a dental assistant should move into another state they should check with that state’s governing dental board and be prepared to update their qualifications.
