Intro to Orthodontics Course


Are you interested in the exciting field of Orthodontic assisting? BDG Academy has one of the only Orthodontic Assisting Courses in Nevada. This fast-paced course will teach you how to tie brackets and learn the newest techniques to fix bites and straighten teeth.

The Orthodontic course can be completed in three consecutive Saturdays and is offered to graduates of the dental assisting training program or anyone with at least two years dental assisting experience that can be verified. Students must also have a high school diploma or a high school equivalence to apply. A 40 hour externship is also included in the course and allows the student to apply the knowledge learned into a real-world setting.

Hours of Operation


Currently we are only offering one BDG Dental Assisting Training Course and one Intro to Orthodontics Course per quarter, that will be held from 8am-5pm on Saturdays year around. Office hours are 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM every Saturday.
