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 can fill 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 Difference.

Advancing Your Career

After graduating from the dental assistant program and getting placed in your first job as a dental assistant, you may consider advancing your career further by becoming a registered dental assistant (RDA).

An RDA is a dental assistant who has obtained essential skills and passed the state’s licensing exam, enabling 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 becoming a Registered Dental Assistant.

The Indigo Difference

The Indigo Network + The Indigo Placement Assistance = 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” with placement assistance.  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 employment


Network offices post open positions — actual jobs — that are available for student application upon graduation
