Connections Dentaires’ Dental Secretary Course
Welcome to the world of dentistry!
As a dental placement agency with tremendous experience in the domain, Connections Dentaires knows exactly what Dentists are looking for in their administrative staff. Henceforth, our Dental Secretary course has been specifically tailored to open you the door to a new and exciting career in the dental field. The domain of Dentistry presents a prestigious working environment, good remuneration and a rewarding experience with much growth potential.
However, working in a dental office also presents different challenges than working in a regular office environment as dentists are busy medical professionals who need to be supported by a team of employees who are aware of the field and can present a professional demeanor in their dealings with their clientele.
As dentists are always focused on treating their patients, they simply do not have the time to hire a secretary that has no prior understanding of the field. Therefore, this course is a crucial step in:
– Providing you with new employment possibilities
– Giving you a distinct advantage over other, less qualified, applicants.
– Expanding your knowledge of an interesting field of work
Once you have completed this course, not only will you be equipped with the knowledge required to start a new and exciting career but you will also receive the full assistance of our placement agency in finding you a position within a clinic.

There are NO pre-requisites for this course. Our students come from many different backgrounds, including but not limited to recent high school graduates, newly arrived immigrants, secretaries who wish to specialize in the dental field, medical secretaries who wish to retrain for better employment opportunities as well as people who simply wished for a career change into a new and exciting field.
Our modular course schedule is built around making your experience in our classroom as convenient as possible. The Dental Secretary training course follows a schedule of 6 weeks. The course is given from 9h to 15h once a week on either Wednesday, Friday or Saturday. This means that we have sessions starting at all times, making it easy for you take the course whenever it is most convenient for you.
In our modern computerized world, proficiency in computer use is an absolute must-have skill for any secretary. This is why our approach to the training of Dental Secretaries relies on the integration of clinical management software into the teaching of classical clinical administration. Such an approach is the key to the success of our graduates at finding rewarding positions in prestigious dental practices as it teaches them invaluable skills that make them stand out and shine in the highly competitive job market.
As a dental placement agency that has been in the business for many years, we know exactly what the clinic coordinators and dentists are looking for in their staff and our program was built upon this knowledge. After your course, you will receive complete placement assistance from our agency personnel until you find a position that you like. Our graduates have very high placement rates, with many finding a permanent position the week after their exam.

Our graduating students
- Shonna Marko-Kwasny ( 23-26 years of age )
I moved from Alberta and saw the Connections Dentaires advertisement online. I decided to take the course, as I thought it would be a great way to get into a new career. Connections Dentaires found a place that matched my personality and referred my resume before I even finished the course! I am now enjoying a fulfilling career in an excellent work environment.
- Shelley Green (59 years of age)
At age 59 I decided to retrain myself in order to find a stimulating career within a professional organization. My choice to become a Dental Secretary was a good one. Connections Dentaires gave me personal care, encouragement and facilitated me in obtaining my goal. The small classes taught by Arvee, were great which enabled us to learn in a calm, constructive environment. Thank you Elena and staff. I recommend this school to everyone looking for a new career in the dental field.
- Suzanne Fry (25-30 years of age)
“I have 3 kids, so I am very limited in working hours. I decided to take the course to become a dental secretary. After receiving my diploma I found myself a job in a paediatric clinic in West Island. I think that everything is possible whatever the situation is.”
- Anna Polinchkov (18-25 years)
I used to work as a receptionist in a gym but I did not like the job I was doing. So I decided to try something new. I signed up for a dental secretary course so I could work in a more prestigious environment. After graduation I passed my training course in a clinic and stayed there as a permanent employee. Some time later my family situation changed and I needed a different working schedule. So I contacted Connections Dentaires and again they found me the right job.
- Rocchina Visconti (54 years of age)
“I left my employment after 38 years due to offshore outsourcing of IT services during difficult economic times. At that point, I was ready for a career change and Connections Dentaires provided me with the proper training and helped me to search for a job as dental secretary based on my particular requirements. “
- Alicia Alfonso (20-25 years of age)
‘’I worked in the CLSC as a medical secretary for couple of years. It was not the environment that I desired; I wanted something more clean and stable. I did not see any possible growth in this career. I was ready for something else. Since I was volunteering, I had limited working hours. After the course, 2 weeks to be more precise, Dental Connections found me exactly what I was looking for.’’
