Emily Hess

Emily Hess“I started going to the Academy of Dental Careers in January 2010.  I loved the fact that they took education and made it fun.  I learned a lot going to school here and what made it even easier is they were so willing to work with me financially.  Once I graduated I was able to get a job within two weeks and I love every minute of it.  Thanks Academy of Dental Careers for helping me better my life.”

Sarika Prabhakaran“The moment I walked into the office, the staff made me feel very warm and welcome.  They were very patient in answering all my questions and doubts.  So I chose to pursue my dental assisting studies in this Academy.  It was one of the best choices I have ever made.  I learned a lot of new things.  Dentistry is an ever changing field and I got to see several new products, techniques and technologies.  The staff are extremely kind, loving and dedicated.  Even being from another country and being new to this place, they made me feel right at home.  I would highly recommend the Academy of Dental Careers to anyone who has a passion for dentistry and would love to pursue a career in dental assisting.”

Alicia Wise

Alicia Wise“My experience at the Academy of Dental Careers was amazing!  I really enjoyed the class size and how welcoming and helpful the instructors are.  With a smaller class I got as much one on one time as I needed and I always felt comfortable asking questions or advice.  I was excited to get to the next class and learn!  The school has a great program with even greater people who truly want to see you succeed.”

Salvador Diaz“The Academy of Dental careers is a great school to become a dental assistant.  They teach you anywhere from the most basic to the most advance on how to perform your job as a dental assistant  Great thing about this school is you get one on one with your instructor and have a great flexibility.  You get OSHA Certified, CPR and you get a great knowledge.  Not only do they teach you and are a great school but also they help you find employment and give you the skills to find a job.  It’s a great school and you will learn a lot.”

Brandy Hutcheson“Being a student at Academy of Dental Careers was so much fun!  The instructors are so knowledgable and extremely patient and helpful.  The clinicals are fun and very hands on.  Which is great (they will even stay late if you don’t feel good about something….they will wait until you feel confident).  The classes are also small so you NEVER feel like just another face in a classroom.  I love this program.  It changed my life and the instructors helped me feel confident and excited about my new career!”

Lacey Freeman“The Academy of Dental Careers was such a great opportunity for me.  The instructors at the school worked one on one with all the girls making sure nobody was left behind.  Working in the school we were able to learn everything hands on.  Attending the Academy of Dental Careers helped me learn what I needed to in order to feel comfortable and confident in being a dental assistant.   I always looked forward going to class, knowing I would have a good time doing something I loved.”

Jet’Aime Carter

Jet’Aime Carter“I am a working mother and needed a school that was fast leading to a career with good pay and the Academy of Dental Careers twelve week program, two nights out of the week worked perfect. The instructors were great, they made it easy to learn, and provided great instruction to help me learn what I needed to know.  Girls that I work with tell me they didn’t learn some of the major things I learned here to help me in my career.  The school provided everything I needed, books, materials, etc., I loved coming, it wasn’t even like school, I got 100% on tests and assignments because of how their curriculum was put together and taught…’ THEY MADE IT SO EASY’.”

We asked students what they love most about being a Dental Assistant and this is what they had to say!

Emily Hess

Emily Hess“I started working at Kaysville Pediatric Dental in April of 2010. I think the best part of working in the dental field is seeing a patient come in and being really nervous and then having them leave happy and no longer afraid of the dentist.  Dr. Jones and the girls I work with have become some of my very good friends.  I am more than lucky to be a part of this team.”

Alicia Wise

Alicia Wise“My experience working at my job is more than I can ask for!  The staff and doctors have been so welcoming and patient with me as I’m still learning the ways of the office  I continue to learn new things every day at work and and look forward to each new challenge.  I am building new relationships with wonderful people and I am so thankful to be part of the Mountain view Dental Team!”

Marli Stevens

Marli Stevens“The Academy taught me so much more than I ever expected.  I learned about procedures, computer programs (such as Dentrix) and inside skills that prepared me for the career that most other schools don’t teach.  I appreciated the school helping me find jobs once I graduated and letting me extern at this office! Thank you Academy of Dental Careers.”

Brandy Hutcheson

Brandy Hutcheson“Attending the Academy of Dental careers was the best decision I have made.  I love going to work and helping people and meeting new people everyday.  It feels really great when a patient comes in pain or not feeling great about their smile and being able to take them out of pain or fixing their teeth so they feel better when they leave is awesome!  I have never gotten so man hugs at previous jobs! I love it!   and it’s finally nice to say I love my job!”

Lacey Freeman

Lacey Freeman“I work for Scott Family Dental in Orem, Utah.  I love working as a dental assistant.  Work never feels like work anymore.  On a daily basis I go in, assist on cleanings as well as doing chairside assisting for Dr. Scott.  I find it so interesting and I learn new things every day.  It has been so fun getting to know the patients and learning all I can about the dental field.”
