Digital radiography is the future of dentistry. Our students learn how to take digital X-rays and panographs on state-of-the-art equipment. Most dental offices, and all newer offices, use this over traditional X-ray technology. We take pride in teaching our students the newest technologies out there.

Dental Practice Software

Eaglesoft is one of the leading dental office software systems. It can track patients’ appointments, charts, medical information, scheduling, and much more. It is a useful tool for a lot of dental practices that help them manage their office. We train students on how to use this software and basic computer skills in our school’s computer lab.
