Student Accounts &

State Board Compliance

Our team in Student Accounts and State Board Compliance, ensures the School and our students have everything needed for state registration and licensing. The Student Accounts team helps prospective students through the registration process and answers any questions throughout the program.
Little Rock School of Dental Assisting is governed by both the Arkansas State Board of Higher Education and the Arkansas Dental Examiners Board. Making sure our dental assisting program exceeds all standards set forth by these Boards is priority number one for our compliance group. This allows our students the comfort of knowing they will be receiving the best education, training, and preparation possible.
