​About Us

Our Philosophy
Based on our private practice dental experience, our goal has always been to be a place where dentists, hygienists and assistants can come together to learn and grow within   our professions. We want to be your partner in continuing education. To provide the quality programs you deserve - filled with practical content, great tips, current protocols and the latest advanced technologies. We want to give you the type of courses we would value if we were sitting in our audience.  We purposely keep our class sizes small for better learning, involvement and networking. We believe sharing ideas with one another is one of the best ways to gain valuable information. We don't have all the answers but  we are committed to listening to you and seeing if we can find a solution for your needs. We're here to help. Feel free to contact us. The input we've received from dental professionals like you, is how we've grown into the training company we are today. 

Our Story
Since 1993, Dr. Swett has been lecturing across the United States and abroad on integrating laser dentistry into private practice. Being a pioneer in the field & one of only five dentists to be part of the FDA clinical trials for the hard tissue laser, he has been tapped to share his experiences & knowledge.

Dr. Swett started getting requests to do hands on laser training and with no structure in place, Impact Dental Training was born in 2012 & we opened our dedicated training facility in 2013. Since that time, the company has slowly grown as we respond to requests from dental office and other dental professionals for additional programming. 

Over the years, we have added government mandated courses (OSHA, HIPAA, Laser Safety), Iowa Dental Board required courses (Dental Assisting Infection Control & Radiology) & remediation for the dental assisting Iowa licensure exams when needed. 

In 2014, after receiving many requests and words of encouragement from our peers, we developed   a comprehensive, practical, hands on expanded functions course for dental assistants & hygienists.
We've been  listening.  What's new in 2017.
We have appreciated all the feedback, ideas and suggestions we have received. While we can't do everything, we are committed to making your experience with us better every year. We hope you enjoy our progress and please keep the comments coming!
As we start 2017, we have tried to respond to many of the suggestions we have been hearing from you.

  • We've added American Heart Association CPR BLS (for the Healthcare Provider) courses. You can                    join a class at our training facility or with a group of 6 or more, we can come to you within our travel area.
  • We continue to add new courses every year. Let us know what topics might benefit your team.
    • We have an excellent communication team building program with or without a workshop on motivational interviewing. We are delighted to have the speaker agree to partner with us because she is a leader in the field and highly respected. This course is by request with notice and based on speaker availability.
    • We have added a great program for dental assistants and hygienists focusing on the preventive dental visit of children, from the very young through adolescence. Great ideas, tips and content to improve the patient and parent experience in your office.
  • We have started using online course registration to make it easier for you to register, pay, identify what                        classes are available and when. Most of our courses have a limited class size. 
  • We are able to provide online testing for courses.

One of our goals is to develop some of our courses to an online format. With our new website, online                              registration & online testing ability, we are getting closer to those requests becoming a reality.

Thank you.
Our continued growth & success has honestly, been a little unexpected. We owe it to all of our participating dentists, hygienists, assistants & business office personnel, who have "bought in" to what we are trying to accomplish. We continually meet impressive dentists, hygienists & assistants from across the midwest. Everyone has been open to sharing ideas & techniques, making our courses even better. For that we thank you. 

Dentistry is a great community with a shared vision of excellence. We are proud to play a small role.
