The choice to go back to school is a financial decision for most people. You are probably looking forward to the potential to make more money in the future, but you might also be concerned with how you’ll pay for it. Fortunately, the Sunrise School of Dental Assisting offers several options for payment, because we would like our program to be affordable for anyone who is interested in expanding his or her career choices.
If you have the funds available to pay for dental assisting school upfront, then we encourage you to do so! We periodically offer special incentives and discounts for those paying the whole tuition at once, so be sure to call and ask.
Split It Up
We offer our own financing in that you can split your tuition into two or more payments. One option is to pay half of the fees at the time of enrollment and the other half before the midterm exam. Another is to have a portion of your tuition automatically withdrawn from your checking account over four months, on either a monthly or bi-weekly basis. This spreads out the cost over several months and allows you to budget for it.
Although Federal funds are not available to pay for dental assisting school, you can take out a medical loan through Care Credit. If you pay off the loan within 18 months, you don’t even pay any interest. One benefit of this program is that you can also use your Care Credit account to pay for certain healthcare services, including eye care, dental services and even veterinary care for your pet. (Note that you need to qualify for an account through Care Credit. You’ll usually receive an answer within a few minutes of applying.)
You might qualify for tuition assistance through the JobLink Career Center if you have been unemployed. Also, if you are the spouse of a military member, you may qualify for tuition funds through MyCAA. Take a look into these programs if you need help paying for dental assisting school.
With several options available, we hope that you will find one that works for your particular circumstances! This will allow you to embark on a new and fulfilling career as a dental assistant, making you more attractive to employers and putting you on the road toward increasing your income. Please call us with any questions you may have.

Prior to attending Sunrise School of Dental Assisting I had zero knowledge of the dentistry field and what this career choice would have in store for me. I had an awesome instructor, as well as current Dental Assistants at Sunrise, to help guide me and continue to be successful in my career. Everyone has been extremely helpful and I have had nothing less than a great experience. After graduation, I was hired on by Sunrise and couldn’t be more happy with my job and the decision to attend Sunrise School of Dental Assisting! Thank you all!!

Sunrise School of Dental Assisting provided me with the knowledge and skills I needed to begin my career in the Dental field. The instructors were very helpful and thorough in explaining the lessons and procedures to the class, and also made it a point to provide any additional help/tutoring before/after lessons for students. I enjoyed my experience at Sunrise School of Dental Assisting. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to receive the proper education necessary in order to excel in their Dental Assisting career

At Sunrise they give you the tools you need to become successful as a Dental Assistant. You have smaller numbers in the class, so you are able to have more one on one time with an instructor if needed. It is a fast paced class, but the instructor is willing to meet with you before class time if you need help. It is a good balance between lectures and actual lab time. You have great hands on experience and work with live “patients” (class members) in order to get an actual feel of what it would be like. The team at Sunrise Dental are very encouraging and push you to strive for your best. They also help with shadowing at different offices and even inform you if there are job openings at other offices. I would recommend this program to anyone and know that they would also get the great training that I have received!
