Our History

A different kind of dental assistant training school.

About DMV

The very first Dental Assistant Training Schools (DMV) location was launched in 2002 by our founder, Dr. Mahmood. With 35 years of experience as a pediatric dentist and 20 years of experience teaching at Georgetown University School of Dentistry and the Children’s Hospital Residency Program, Dr. Mahmood has a passion for dentistry, and wants to share that knowledge and passion with future dental assistants.

Since Dr. Mahmood launched that first location, we’re proud to say that DMV has grown to 8 schools across Maryland and Virginia. DMV now also provides dental assisting training and faculty for Harford Community College, and College of Southern Maryland.

Our Mission & Values

DMV is a different kind of dental assistant training school, founded on our three core values: preparation, convenience, and cost. It is our mission to help our students develop the practical, clinical skills they need to succeed as dental assistants in the real world.

You should feel confident in your new career. We are dedicated to preparing you for this new position as a dental assistant by teaching you all the clinical skills you’ll need to be successful.

This program is built for you. We offer classes on nights and weekends in multiple locations across Maryland and Virginia to ensure you’re able to attend every course, at a convenient location.

It’s our goal to make dental assistant training affordable to any student with an interest. We work hard to keep tuition low and minimize any additional fees and material costs.
