TKO Dental Assisting School Program allows dentists to use existing facilities to train assistants and generate significant new revenue.

EXTON, Pennsylvania--Turnkey Opportunities, Inc. has introduced the TKO Dental Assisting School Program.

The program allows dentists to use their existing facilities to train assistants and generate significant new revenue.

The program, which was developed by "Top 100" Clinician and educator Jonathan Scharf, DMD, FAACD, provides administrative, instructional, and marketing materials needed for running a professional-quality dental assisting school within a dental office. TKO program components, including videos of all class lectures, come preloaded on a laptop computer.

The TKO Dental Assisting School Program was developed, tested, and proven by Dr. Scharf, a past president of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. It can be taught by a trained hygienist or assistant and the dentist need not be present during classes.

Most practices that have room to seat students (the waiting area will often suffice) and have a day a week or evenings when the practice is closed to patients can qualify to operate the school. Having the program preloaded on a laptop makes it easy for the instructor to project the provided PowerPoint slides, print handouts, and access curriculum guides.

A Success Manual is also included, which contains valuable advice and insider tips based on Dr. Scharf's experience running his own highly successful school. The comprehensive program provides almost everything needed to run a profitable dental assisting school, from a fully functional Web site to ready-to-print brochures, ads, response letters, typodont teeth, even graduation certificates.

Materials come personalized with any school name and address the purchaser chooses.

The TKO Dental Assisting School Program is aimed to allow dentists to build business equity. The program could pay for itself in as few as two classes.

Each school is owned by the purchaser, so there are no franchise fees or revenue sharing, and the dentist is free to set class prices and modify the program if desired.

TKO is offering exclusive territories (where the company will not sell additional schools) in selected areas across the country. Schools are not available in all states.

To learn more and find out whether there is a territory available in your area, call 888-TKO-DENT (888-856-3368). Information is also available at Turnkey Opportunities.
