A Proven Self-Paced Blueprint To Launch Your Dental Assisting School, Create A Pool of Highly Qualified Assistants, and Generate a Lucrative Side-Income
Introducing the Dental Assisting School Helper (D.A.S.H.) – a step-by-step online program that gives you unrestricted access to a proprietary self-serve turnkey package, trusted by over 140 dentists and flagship universities across the US and Canada.
Designed by Medical Curriculum Partners (MCP), D.A.S.H. is an affordable alternative or preliminary step to our turnkey partnership, designed for dental professionals that are ready to start building their dental assisting schools independently.
This proprietary program equips you with the proven school assets, industry know-how and plug-and-play templates for you to launch, operate and grow your own school… so you can create a consistent pool of highly qualified dental assistants, and generate a lucrative passive income of up to $180,000 a year.
…of Industry, operational, & start-up knowledge in the medical & dental space since 2004
Trusted by over 140 dentists and flagship universities in the U.S. and Canada
…of potential average side income (every year) for your practice
Chances are, if you’re a dentist, dental practice owner or employee in North America, you know how difficult it is to find (and retain) skilled dental assistants.
Add that to the day-to-day struggle of running a practice, and the demands that already come with the profession — and you’re looking at a twofold blow.
This gap doesn’t just slow down your business growth… but also increases your workload as you strive to provide top-tier dental care to your patients.
You even end up dealing with everyday management of patient appointments and paperwork yourself to ensure a smooth operation…
But eventually, the lack of good support will start to affect your performance and how satisfied your patients feel, which in turn, can hurt your reputation.
Plus, by the time you clock out of your practice, you barely have energy left for your wellbeing, which can put you at risk of the mental and health challenges that are all too common in this industry.
Deep down inside, you know it shouldn’t have to take a breaking point for you to revisit your business strategy and explore a completely different yet sustainable way to truly make a good living…
And hopefully restore the enthusiasm you had when you first started your career or opened your practice.
So how do you escape the grip of overwork and still be able to account for all your operational costs, provide first-rate service to your clients, and manage a qualified, proficient and loyal team?
The answer lies in leveraging your expertise differently, reshaping your role within the industry, and taking charge of the talent pool — by opening a dental assisting school.
While it may seem like a daunting venture or a distant and ambitious dream, starting your own dental assisting school is actually the best strategy to address your operational challenges, step back from the daily grind, and scale your practice… without scaling your schedule.
And the best part is — developing, launching and operating your dental assisting school is not as complicated as you think it is.
In an ever-evolving economy, Dental Assistants are in high demand in the U.S. and Canada.
The career ranks as the third fastest-growing job not requiring a degree, which makes starting a Dental Assisting School an attractive option for dentists.
And with approximately 60 dental practices per 100,000 people — it’s clear that not only is competition for patients strong, but there’s also a very high-demand need for skilled, competent and caring Dental Assistants.
Having a school will not only generate a steady additional income stream for your practice, but also minimize overhead costs and give you first access to highly trained talents.
The best part is, you don’t have to start from scratch. With the right strategy, you can leverage your existing office and equipment during off-hours, and have your staff teach the school curriculum on a part-time basis.
And if you’re not ready to invest in a full turnkey solution, but want to set things in motion with a reliable and applicable process that equips you with all the assets you need to begin building your school… look no further.
Modeled after MCP Dental’s proprietary startup model, D.A.S.H. is the perfect alternative for dentists and dental practice owners who may not be ready to invest in our turnkey package — or as a preparatory step to becoming our partner.
While it costs $18,500 (or $21,000 in California) to invest in our full turnkey program, D.A.S.H. gives you unrestricted access to our repository of playbooks, training videos, tools and materials — allowing you to handle every aspect of launching, developing and operating a school on your own… for a fraction of the price.
And all you’ll pay for lifetime access to this step-by-step program is $3600. BUT here’s why you’ll pay even less than that today.
Because this is the first time we’ve offered D.A.S.H. to the public, you’re getting a limited-time early bird price of $899 –along with thousands of dollars worth of bonuses FREE when you join now.
That means you save $2701 on top of the already reduced price… but only if you purchase the program before the price goes up on December 31, 2023 at midnight.
Beyond in-class training, D.A.S.H. also provides guidance on school marketing, day-to-day operations, legal services, and financial management — to ease your transition from being a dentist to owning a thriving dental assisting school.
With this program, you can begin to break free from overwork and elevate your dental practice, make a significant contribution to the industry, and potentially garner an extra $120,000-$180,000 annually from tuition fees alone.
But more than that — it’s a pathway to alleviate stress and regain control over your time and your life.
Immediately after ordering, you’ll get access to all our training videos, instructor manuals, customizable templates, class assessments and school materials — all clearly outlined for a step-by-step learning journey that will help you navigate each stage of developing, launching and operating your school.

Use our drag-and-drop web designer to build your school site, SEO tools to drive organic leads and enrollments, and other administration features to schedule classes, collect payments, and manage your online reputation effectively.

Medical Curriculum Partners (MCP) was founded in 2004 as a collegiate partner to large flagship universities across the U.S., running our premium assistant training programs by leasing office space at local medical practices.
Over time, as the practice owners observed the increasing number of dedicated and qualified talent training under their roof every quarter, many expressed their keen
interest in operating their own schools.
This inspired us to translate our passion for vocational education into a platform for dentists nationwide to benefit and profit from our premium curriculums and proprietary educational technologies.
So in 2018, we launched the MCP Dental Assisting School Program, a complete turnkey model crafted exclusively for entrepreneurial dentists.
For an investment of $18,500 (and $21,000 for California), MCP provides a proven partnership that walks you through the entire process of establishing a school, including laying the groundwork and providing continuous support and innovation.
However, we realized that many weren’t prepared to make such a significant investment. Determined to make our startup model more accessible, we created D.A.S.H., which enables dental practices to learn and apply the process at your own pace — at a fraction of the cost of our turnkey solution.
By choosing D.A.S.H., you’re also partnering with a team that truly understands the complexities of dental practice management and shares your ambition for sustainable growth.
With a network of over 150 partners, our mission at MCP is clear — we want to provide dentists with a unique and innovative opportunity to increase their practice’s income, make a positive impact on the industry, and improve their quality of life.

Most schools require up to a year of classes. Our programs take only 12 weeks to complete.

D.A.S.H. is designed to be a self-paced online learning experience, catering to your unique schedule and needs. While the time commitment can vary based on individual pace, many participants find dedicating several hours each week over several months allows them to thoroughly digest the material and apply it effectively.
However, it’s essential to remember that the more time you can commit initially, the faster you might see tangible results.
We understand that as a dental professional, your schedule can be hectic. You can delegate the learning to your current team who can serve as your teaching staff and work as your subcontractors. This reduces overhead and converts downtime into a passive income source with an after-hours vocational school.
Plus, with D.A.S.H.’s robust support system, including playbooks on school operations and an integrated call center, anyone handling the program on your behalf will have the necessary resources at their fingertips.
Remember, the primary goal is to ensure that your dental assisting school becomes a reality, whether you go through the program personally or entrust it to a capable team member.
It might seem overwhelming initially, but with D.A.S.H., the process becomes streamlined and manageable, even if you’re already running a busy practice.
The program is designed precisely for professionals like you — it offers a self-paced online learning experience, ensuring that you can proceed at your own convenience and comfort level.
Plus, the program provides comprehensive support, from school operation playbooks to a robust platform that offers easy access to essential documents, templates, and assets needed to run the school.
The goal of D.A.S.H. is to make our proprietary startup process accessible, affordable and applicable.
Once you’ve joined D.A.S.H., you have the option of supplementing the program with MCP Dental’s “a la carte” services, such as licensing, admissions or marketing assistance, to ensure that you get precisely the support you need.
