DATC was founded in 1985 along with New York State District Dental Societies, whose members are all dentists. The Dental Societies co-sponsor our programs and their members seek to hire our graduates.

Dental Auxiliary Training Center is the only school in New York with this affiliation. 

We offer training for dental assistants in N.Y.
