About Us:

Denver Dental Assistant School located in Lakewood, powered by Zollege, is currently searching for a Part Time Dental Assistant Instructor to join the team!

Zollege leads the change in the for-profit certificate market so that students begin their careers with zero federal financial aid and minimal debt. We believe in hands-on learning, relationship building, and teamwork. We are seeking experienced dental assistants with a passion for training the next generation to join our team.

Job Summary:

As a Dental Assistant Instructor, you will combine your passion for dentistry with your ability to mold and shape students to bring hands-on education to the students of our dental assistant school.

Instructor positions are part-time with classes held on Saturdays 7:30am-5:30pm

  • Enforce classroom management and ensure that safety precautions are adhered to.
