Learn with Evolve

​​Today's dental office has changed drastically for the front end team, demanding that they play a much greater role in the business operations of the dental practice than ever before. Education provided in the past no longer reflects the vast areas of expertise today's administrators require to thrive in the workplace. We are Evolve are dedicated to providing quality education that adequately reflects the demands of today's busy dental office, and sets our graduates up for success within the workplace.
Through our versatile training methods and unique testing structure, Evolve’s online learning platform offers a multitude of advantages when compared to learning in a traditional classroom setting. Our curriculum is created and taught by dental experts who know exactly what it's like to work in a dental setting and what it takes to succeed in the field.​

​Read below to learn more about the unique  benefits of Learning With Evolve:
  • Personalized Experience and Instructor Support    -     This is a distance-learning program, but students are not alone. Evolve offers unlimited one-on-one access to instructors, via telephone, email or video conference, or remote log-in sessions. All coaching is specific to each individual student and suited to their learning needs. At anytime, students have the opportunity to contact their program instructor for further discussion on course topics or assistance in navigating materials and assignments. This allows the freedom to stop and ask questions, or move forward as you see fit. 
  • Don’t Miss Out on Key Information -   There are no classes to miss! Learning through a traditional classroom setting can be restrictive in that some information taught throughout a lesson may not be accessible to students later on. This could mean missing out on key information if notes are not clear, if concepts are misunderstood, or a lesson is missed due to unforeseen circumstances. With online study, students have all pertinent study materials at their fingertips throughout the duration of the program, so changing schedules and unexpected circumstances don't mean you will be left behind.

  • Develop  Industry Skills through an Online  Format - ​ Many qualities of the successful dental administrator directly correlate with skills developed when learning online. Such attributes include; the ability to self motivate and work independently, read and interpret instructions and data, practice resourcefulness and research skills, show proficiency in using technology and more. By learning to troubleshoot, problem solve and work independently, our graduates gain a multitude of technological skills imperative to the industry.

  • Testing and Assignments are based on Understanding, not Memorization -   Our program focuses on the real-life skills required to be an effective dental business administrator, not memorization and regurgitation. There are too many variations between dental offices, daily schedules, administrative duties, and unforeseen situations to strictly rely on memorized information. An entry-level administrator must instead learn how to use their foundational knowledge in a way that allows them to handle a variety of unexpected situations and interactions throughout each day. Evolve uses open book assignments and testing that are designed to assess whether students have an understanding of the concepts and if they can apply those concepts to the workplace.

  • Multiple Delivery Methods -   Course curriculum is delivered through text, illustrations, screen capture images, worksheets and video tutorials, in order to provide multiple explanations for various concepts. Study through printable self assessment quizzes and worksheets. Answer keys are provided, allowing you to grade your own work in order to confirm understanding of the content. Understand the types of interactions you will come across on a daily basis in a dental clinic, and practice your communication skills through telephone coaching sessions. Learn dental-based software and put your skills into action, with the use of tutorial videos which bring you step by step through key tasks in running the day to day operations of a dental clinic.
