"I am very dissatisified that I paid seven hundred dollars for a piece of paper. I haven't been able to find a job as a dental assistant because it's not accredited by the danb. All the employers laugh at my diploma because we have no experience when we are done. I would like a full refund because a piece of paper is not worth $700. I would not recommend this school to anybody but high school students. I feel it's a scam."

"I got my dental assisting diploma in 2013. Since I have had ZERO jobs in the field. Every time I tell people I got my degree online I get told "you need hands on experience" or they tell me "no we don't train" I'm angry that I spent over 700$ for a useless piece of paper and have NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT. THANKS PENN FOSTER FOR WASTING MY TIME AND TAKING MY MONEY."

"Penn Foster is pretty legit. I haven't completed my course yet but just a word of advise. You can do anything you set your mind to. Penn Foster gives you the tools and knowledge, it's simply up to you of what you will build. Nothing comes easy. Just stay focused and work hard. Any questions or concerns their will always be help for you and even if you don't agree with this program it will always be something to make your resume look good and also a stepping stone towards your career goals."

"I completed the program and made my monthly payments. I never received my certificate and was later told that I could not have it until I paid in full. I am a single mom and fight to stay ahead and this career was supposed to help me achieve that. THEY ARE RIDICULOUS!!!"
