The Foundation for Allied Dental Education (FADE) was founded in 2011 as a non-profit, public benefit corporation dedicated to advocacy, professional development, and standards-based formal education. In time, hard work and profoundly creative initiatives coupled with corporate and private donations, allowed the FADE Board of Directors to implement a transformative strategic mission when, in 2016, The FADE Institute of El Dorado Hills became a reality; a private institution of higher education focused solely on the dental assisting discipline.
Today, The FADE Institute has been recognized and rewarded for our excellence in education, for making increasingly important contributions to the dental society, and for our scholarly advances enriching the next generation of dental healthcare providers. The personal and professional commitment of our faculty and administrators exemplifies how excellence in formal education is the bedrock by which great dental teams are made.
Our unmatched and highly sought-after courses, programs and educational events are attended by allied dental personnel who know the value in furthering their career via an institution of quality. In the words of our founder: “The FADE Institute’s incomparability derives from its dedication to fostering education and opportunity in furtherance of the very profession that we, as dental educators, have ourselves derived so much; but it also stems from our optimism, our resilience and our courage to continue evolving.”
