Dental Careers of Southern Indiana was organized in June 2005 by Dr. Donna Rush, a dentist who saw a dearth of training opportunities for dental assistants in the area. The vocational training school entered a new era of existence in January 2015 when it was purchased by Bruce Kepley. The school’s name was changed to Caris College to better reflect the diversity of the programming it offers students within the area. A new, user-friendly and interactive website was launched to signify this new chapter for Caris College.

Caris College: A Strong Educational Partner in Southern Indiana

Strong relationships with vocational rehabilitation and workforce development staff over the school’s existence led Caris College’s administrative staff to offer classes and programs designed to meet the needs of the community. Employment experts in the area indicated the need for more programming such as Basic Dental Assistant, Basic Dental Business Management, Dental Laboratory Assistant and Expanded Duty Dental Assistant. Further needs for the region were also identified and include Comprehensive Dental Assisting, Patient Care Technician and Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Classes take place on the Caris College campus located in Jeffersonville, Indiana at 1615 Spring Street, Suite B. Campus offerings found there include student classrooms as well as clinic and lab areas. The college’s administrative offices are also located on site.

Caris College Builds Strong Educational Foundations with Area Agencies

Caris College has maintained contracts and strong connections within the community in which it serves. In addition to being approved by the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), Better Business Bureau of Kentucky and Southern Indiana, Vocational Rehabilitation and the Indiana Office of Career and Technical Schools, Caris College is also certified to provide educational programming for Expanded Duties Dental Assisting and Radiation Safety X-Ray Technique by the Indiana State Department of Health and the Kentucky Board of Dentistry.
