"Do not come here for dental assisting! Worse experience of my life and a total run for your money. This facility does not have enough equipment for the students, they lie and tell you your class size will be small but in all actuality the class size is large, and the director of the dental assistant program is VERY RUDE, DISRESPECTFUL, and DOES NOT LIKE TO SEE HIS STUDENTS EXCELL, he will do ANYTHING in his power to see you fail even if it means spreading lies! THEEEEE ABSOLUTE WORSE EXPIRENCE EVER!!!! I did learn a lot, however it's not worth the stress."

"I have a few positive things to say about this school, but to be honest I have more negative thoughts than positive. I just finished up my dental assisting program two months ago and I'm happy to be done. Be very very aware when going to "tour the school" or "talk to someone" about a program. They will suck you in and pressure you to sign up that very day without even thinking it through. They suckered me in. After that, applying to this school was a living NIGHTMARE! It took weeks and weeks for simple paperwork to go through. I probably went to the school about a dozen times before I finally was enrolled. Same goes for when it's time to graduate. Part of the problem is that the staff is never there and it's almost impossible to contact the person you need. As far as my education goes, I say it was average. I learned some interesting and important things for my career (dental assisting) but I feel like I could have learned more. My teachers were pretty good but some of the staff there had a real attitude problem. Teachers and administrators quit and were fired all the time. No consistency. The students on the other hand made the cast of Jersey Shore look tame. Fights,screaming matches, and just plain rudeness were daily occurrences. Externship was the LONGEST 12 WEEKS OF MY LIFE!! The sites they send you to are places they scraped together at the last minute because the offices had no clue on how to train a student. The offices wanted free labor, not time to train a student. The thing that irritated me the most was the lying. Us dental assistants were told that we would graduate making $16 an hour. Every interview I've been to (as well as other students have told me)offers $10 to $11. Oh yeah, they made it seem like there are so many jobs available in our field. Newsflash, there are very few. I could have made that without spending $20,000 for my education. This school does not have the best reputation with employers. Moral of the story, go to community college and earn yourself a real degree."

"There is a director of dental assisting named Ms G that verbally attacked me in the waiting room. She is a poor role model and I will never recommend or attend this college.. She is unprofessional!! I would recommend that you find people who will represent your school positively. MS G does not even know me. She is a rude woman!!"
