The best school I ever attended. Staff and teachers are amazing especially Lisa R. They made learning fun while yet making sure we understood what was being taught.

Such a great school! Had the best teacher. I was beyond prepared when it came to my first job in the dental field. I’d recommend this school to anyone who is looking into dental assisting!
