Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019

This school is definitely a joke. Do not waste your money coming here. $17,000 for the dental assistant program is a little much for the poor education you get. I went to the San Bernardino one and they dont tell you that you have a different teacher every month. They also dont tell you how you randomly start in different chapters each month and get random classmates to new students to where you have to do orientation all over again. I was expecting maybe 2 teachers one for lecture and one for lab but no. Each month is someone knew. Definitely consider going somewhere else. This place is also not military friendly. I was told I could use MYCAA but come to find out Concorde is on a locked school status so theyre not even accepting anything. A month into my program I was told I randomly owed an extra $1,000. So no. Dont waste your time here

Degree: Dental Assisting/Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

I went to Concorde back in 2015-2016. I wouldnt recommend any one who is attending to go for programs like dental assisting or medical assisting. Its really not worth your money and most times in that particular field you dont get paid that much from companies. I went from making 10 dollars a hour to 14 and after taxes I was still making what I made with 10 an hour. Any who my teacher was a b**** and who ever she liked the most she put on good extermships. The school doesnt really care other than the fact that you are a business opportunity. I just recently went back because of the respiratory therapist program and after my enrollment didnt complete I tried calling Amy from administration for other information but she never returned my call once she new I wasnt the next business opportunity .

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2018

Signed up and at the time was told I could sit for CODA and DANBE certification. Which found out later is untrue. The classes never had any instruments needed to complete course work, X-Ray machine rarely worked, books out of date, and some days the school had no water. Instructors were not certified to teach, they were just random people who worked in a Dental Office, the instructors would come and go as they pleased, high turn over, there is no Dental Assisting Director. This school does not put your education first. As a matter of fact it is put on the back burner. They would rather make money then actually educate you. Many dental offices in the area will not hire from this school. Spent way more money than I found out I needed to spend. Please do your research before signing up for this school. Horrible and questionable recruiting practices.

They lied from beginning to end. When I first registered I specifically asked if they were an accredited school. Comes to find out, the DANB does not recognize them. Therefore, all my hard work was for nothing. It has been next to impossible to find a job as an assistant because of this. Not to mention, the other students are the ones that are showing you how to do things, not the teachers.

I sit in class for 30-45 minutes till the instructor finally decides to start teaching, but we get in trouble if we're 10 minutes late. The director is rarely here and when he is, he does a horrible job at making mends meet. I don't suggest this school if you're going for DA. It's a waste of time and money.

I feel like I learned how to make something of myself here. I've learned a lot and I've learned how to make a career in something I enjoy doing. Enrolling was one of the best decisions I've ever made and I would highly recommend anyone to go here is they want to be successful and to meet great people that only want the best for you.

I graduated from the Concorde Career College in Memphis,TN back in October.2013. I haven't found a job yet I wish I had someone to tell me about this school before attending please don't attend this school if you're pursuing a career in dental assisting

Degree: Dental Assisting/Assistant
Graduation Year: 2011

Like everyone trying to find a school that'll work for them I was very hesitant about going to a school I saw as an annoying ad on TV over and over again. But something about that time in my life I knew I needed a change and this school just fit. There were a few instructors that we're not very good teachers thankfully I never had them as the one instructor I had which was incredible ended up moving out of state. Not sure if the program is as good as it once was when I was there but I'm very successful in my career and advancing because Concorde gave me that head start.
