I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the training at OC Dental Academy, it was the best choice I ever made. They have created fun and very informative, fast paced, hands on learning course, that will help you start your new career in dental assisting. Konni is the best! Professional, encouraging and dedicated to not only her student’s success but she genuinely cares about making sure you are prepared to do well as a Dental Assistant. She is very informative, easy to talk to, and will always answer any questions you might have. I highly recommend OC Dental Academy!
As a single mom with only my high school diploma, the job market was looking pretty bleak. Then I went to OC Dental Academy and was hired immediately upon graduating at a great dental office with great pay. The course itself was AWESOME; fast paced and very hands on. Konni is a wonderful instructor who not only teaches you the facts of the dental field, but she teaches you the little things that will make you a valuable assistant to any dental practice. I can honestly say that I wouldn't be where I am today without Konni and OC Dental Academy! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
I'd like to start off saying that I am thrilled that I chose OC Dental Academy to start my new career. I was just finalized my divorce and was thinking of reinventing myself in some way. I thought about it for a while and then dove in. First of all, I loved Konni as an instructor, she listened to every student, she answered all our questions about our future expectations and was VERY knowledgeable in the Dental field. I am thrilled to say, I got a job starting as sterilization manager, room organizer and simple dental assisting. I got hired from the knowledge I obtained in such a short time from OC Dental!
