WHY CHOOSE MATRIX?


The Matrix School of Dental Assisting was founded to offer New Mexico job seekers an affordable training option within a manageable time frame. The concept works so well that more than one Dentist in Albuquerque has opened their own school with a similar curriculum! We started teaching in 2011 and are now almost through our sixth year.


Hands on training here starts on day one, familiarizing students with the many instruments and pieces of equipment that are a part of dentistry. Every class session starts with a bit of lecture then students spend the rest of the time handling equipment, instruments and supplies as they become familiar with the procedures being taught. During your internship, after you are prepared, you'll begin to assist Dr. Isham or the many Dentist's that we work with in actual patient procedures.


Teaching Dental Assisting is our passion at Matrix. Most of our students are referrals from former students and the many Dentists, Dental Assistants, and other dental professionals that we have worked with for years. We are proud of our school and the many students who have placed their trust in us. Some of the best assistants in New Mexico got their start at the Matrix School of Dental Assisting!


DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY TRAINING


Matrix students learn to take digital radiographs on state-of-the-art x-ray machines using digital processing. In New Mexico it is illegal for students to take x-rays on live patients until they are licensed by the State of New Mexico in the Expanded Function of Dental Radiography; all legitimate training programs use mannequins with radiopaque teeth for x-ray training.


INDUSTRY SPECIFIC SOFTWARE


At Matrix we train our students using Dentrix Practice Management Software, the market leading dental software solution.
