What Students Are Saying About our Dental Assistant School

     
 

Mackenzie, Class of 2012 ----------

I LOVE this school!
I am extremely glad that I attended. The staff is great, friendly and knowledgeable in their field. You work hard and the expectations are high, however, it is so worth it. I learned so much and I know this because I had a couple of friends attending other dental assisting programs in the area while I was attending school and they did not have the same knowledge and skill level as I did at upon completion of the course. I truly encourage you to take this course!

Michelle, Class of 2012 ----------

This school is great for individuals who want a lasting career. I chose Northshore because it was only 22 weeks and that met my family and current job requirements. Attending Northshore was a big decision because I drove from East Wenatchee every week. However, it was the best decision I have ever made and now I am an assistant in a wonderful endodontic practice. I give a big thanks to the Northshore staff because they really pushed me to do my best and to accept nothing less.

Shaunte, Class of 2012 ----------

As a former graduate from Northshore, my experience was AMAZING, and WONDERFULLY educational. All of my needs were met with much enthusiasm. One-on-one with the instructors definitely got me through some rough times. As you go through the course, the instructors walk you through each aspect with great detail. I had no knowledge of the dental field prior to attending Northshore. Today, I am an orthodontic clinician and am proud to inform anyone and everyone of this amazing school. It changed my life. I would highly recommend, when checking out other dental assisting programs in the area, that you give some thought to Northshore. They are the BEST!

Jessica, Class of 2011 ----------

A couple of weeks back, I was doing an impression, my doctor was checking me and said "I bet you got all A's on your impressions and pour-ups". Little did she know about my history with those! The experience has been wonderful and I love my line of work.

Brittany, Class of 2010 ----------

I attended Northshore during the winter of 2010, and by July I was working for a great dentist in the Snohomish area. I really enjoyed the fast-paced program and small classes of 12 students, which meant we were able to have extra help when needed. The staff is amazing and so knowledgeable in all aspects of dentistry. If you're looking to find a career as a dental assistant, you need to consider Northshore!

Genevieve, Class of 2010 (www.pacificpedo.com) ----------

Fantastic program! I graduated from Northshore in May of 2010 and quickly got a job at a great pedo office in Edmonds, Washington. Cynthia and her staff really go above and beyond in their teaching and know how to gain friendships on a personal level. Classes were always a lot of fun while also staying on point. When I was attending school, I lived in Wenatchee, Washington, which is three hours away from class. Cynthia was always accommodating to my driving situation and made sure I was safe going back and forth in the snow. I am so glad I made the switch into dental assisting. I know I have made the best decision by attending Northshore. I enjoy going to work every day, and going through this program has opened many doors for me.

Keri, class of 2009 (www.new32dental.com) ----------

My experience at Northshore was one of the most rewarding opportunities of my adult life. As a single mother, I was able to go to school once a week and still be able to work a full-time job and be there for my daughter. It's absolutely one of the best decisions I've made.

The instructors there are very focused on teaching every student equally and making sure no one is left behind. They push you to succeed in their program and give you the tools and knowledge of how the dental field is run. They are very accepting of students who learn differently. For example, they let you use voice recorders to record all lectures, and they make sure everyone is very hands-on with sterilizations. We were able to work on classmates to get the feel for what it's like to have a patient in your chair, and the staff even helps you write a good rseume to help you find a job that fits you.

After successfully completing the program, I was very fortunate to become a part of a wonderful team at New32. I enjoy my job very much, and one of the great things about being a dental assistant is the hours; many offices work four days a week, which allows me to have time with my family and still bring in a great income.

Lindsey, Class of 2009 (www.cleavinger.com) ----------

I attended Northshore in the summer/fall of 2009. My experience there could not have been better, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in becoming an assistant. I learned the basic procedures and expanded duties that are essential in the ever-growing field of dentistry. Cynthia and her staff are always there to go the extra mile and make sure you are confident with your chairside training. With the small class size and the number of instructors, you are sure to get the most out of your time with these wonderful ladies and in this fantastic program. After graduation, I landed my dream job working for a female dentist in Bellevue. I could not be happier and I love going to my job every day. I would not have spent my Saturday any other way than I did at Northshore. Thank you for giving me a fun-filled and much valued experience that I will always have and will definitely never forget.

Tiffanie, class of 2009 (www.wernerdds.com) ----------

One phone call to Northshore changed my entire life. I went from just having a job as a barista to having a career that I absolutely love. The class schedule at Northshore fit perfectly with my life as a single mom with two kids and a full-time job. I looked forward to every week learning new things. The staff was very knowledgeable and helped me learn quickly. I loved the small size class, and I felt like the staff was more capable of giving more attention to each of us as we needed it. A few weeks before my class of 2009 graduated, I felt confident in sending my résumé out, and I received a job within a week. I am now with Dr. Judson Werner and Dr. Joanna Sun at a wonderful practice in Bellevue. I love every part of what I do and I owe that to Cynthia Curtis. Even now, a year later, I can call her for any advice, whether it is dental related or personal, and she is there for me. I will always remember that first phone call and how it changed my life. Thank you, Northshore, the staff, and especially Cynthia, for having such a wonderful school and advancing my life.

Holly, class of 2009 (www.feaseldental.com) ----------

I attended Northshore in the winter of 2009. It is an intensive, fast-paced program over a period of 22 weeks. They have a great facility that allows for lectures and practicing your skills in one location. Cynthia and her staff are very knowledgeable and prepare you for a great career in dental assisting. The classes are ideal for someone who is working full-time and wants to study for another career. Northshore taught me the skills and gave me the confidence I needed to pursue my goal of being a dental assistant. I was hired at the office I interned at and have now been there for year and a half, and I love it! I enjoyed my experience at Northshore and would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting a career in the dental assisting field.

Linda, Class of 2008 ----------

I enjoyed everything about NSDAA, especially the staff! Their patience and willingness to help made lectures and learning procedures fun and exciting. I was able to take everything I was taught and apply it toward the job I have now, which I love! Cynthia still calls to see how everything is going-how often can you say that about past teachers? I would recommend NSDAA to anyone interested in becoming a dental assistant.

Maricor, Class of 2008 ----------

I attended NSDAA in the winter of 2008. I'm so grateful for my experience there. I was taught all the essential aspects of being a dental assistant and more. The small class size allowed for the staff to pay attention to each student individually. The program also allowed for me to keep a full-time work schedule, which was very important. Two weeks prior to graduation, I was offered a position at Lynnwood Children's Dentistry. I love working with kids and wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks to Cynthia and the wonderful staff at NSDAA, I now have a career.

Agnes, Class of 2008 ----------

I attended NSDAA during the winter quarter of 2008. It was a fast-paced program with the best instructors around. The staff at NSDAA is very knowledgeable, experienced within the field, and always passionate about helping students succeed. I would highly recommend NSDAA.

April, class of 2008 ----------

I graduated from NSDAA in May of 2008, and by mid-June I received a job working for a great female dentist in the Kirkland area. By the time I finished NSDAA I felt ready and excited to get a job in the field of dental assisting. I enjoy going to work every day! NSDAA is a fantastic school that allows you to work full-time while starting a new career. They also have an amazing staff to go along with their awesome program. If you're considering this career, then you should be thinking about NSDAA!

Wendy, Class of 2008 ----------

My experience at NSDAA is something I am very grateful for. All the teachers are knowledgeable and informative. Cynthia is always available to answer any questions or concerns I have, even now that I have completed the course. With the skills I learned at NSDAA, I was able to start my career at a periodontal office four weeks before I graduated. I would recommend anyone looking to start a career in dental assisting to check out NSDAA.

Tara, Class of 2008 ----------

I heard about NSDAA from a friend who had recently graduated and had nothing but great things to say about the staff and school. I had always thought being a dental assistant would be a fun and challenging job. I called the school and met with Cynthia Curtis. After the meeting, I knew this was the school for me: small class sizes, great one-on-one with the teachers, open labs, and classes that fit my schedule.

One of my main concerns was being able to find a job after graduation. With the help and advice from Cynthia and the staff, I was able to find a job before I graduated. I love my job as an orthodontist's assistant. I know that what I learned about dentistry and assisting from NSDAA landed me my dream job. The certificate opened doors for me, and I was confident to apply for any type of assisting job in the dental field.

Even though I graduated in May of 2008, I can still call and ask advice and know that Cynthia will be here for me. I cannot express how much I love the staff at NSDAA and would recommend the school to anyone interested in dental assisting.

Marchel, Class of 2007 ----------

I graduated in the fall of 2007 and was hired within three weeks of graduation. I work for Munson & Rude Endodontic practice in Kirkland. This is a very fast-paced office with high demand, and I feel that if it weren't for the training I received from NSDAA, I wouldn't be here today. NSDAA has high standards set for its students. The individual attention you receive from the instructors is outstanding. With a small class size, Cynthia, Cheri, and the other instructors always make sure you receive one-on-one knowledge and clinical and chairside training throughout the program. I would highly recommend this school if you want to have a bright future as a dental assistant. Thanks, Cynthia and all the staff at NSDAA.

Rita, Class of 2006 ----------

I could never thank you enough for introducing me to dentistry. Your passion and commitment to the profession really motivated me to pursue dental school. The skills I learned at Northshore allowed me to gain the experience and connections necessary for my acceptance to Nova Dental School. Life will never be the same again, and I have you to thank. I know that the life of an educator is to touch and change lives day in and day out. But I wanted to make sure that you knew how MUCH you changed mine for the better, and I could not thank you enough.

Lydia, Class of 2005 ----------

I attended NSDAA in spring of 2005. Because of the exceptional training I received, I was able to find a job three weeks prior to graduation. I work in Issaquah at Eastside Pediatric Dental Group and I just love what I do. Thanks to Cynthia and her awesome staff, I was taught the necessary dental assisting skills and much more to make it an easy transition from class to work. Cynthia knew my personality and was able to recommend a few dental assisting positions for me to call upon, and within a week I had a job. I highly recommend this school to any prospective student.

Galen, Class of 2005 ----------

I love all the staff at NSDAA; they make learning fun! After graduation I decided that I wanted to work in a dental lab because I like to make things and I love to work with my hands. I applied to B & H Dental Lab, which is now known as Sea Brook Dental Lab, in Edmonds. Because of what I was taught in class, I was able to take that knowledge and expand into the lab field. One of my favorite things to do in class was taking X-rays. Cheri Donlin, who teaches this skill at NSDAA, is extremely knowledgeable in the dental assisting field and is awesome at teaching the different ways to get the best X-ray. My next favorite thing was how to make a beautiful temporary crown. This was great fun because you get to be creative. It's what I learned in this section of the class that got me my job at the lab.

Randi , Class of 2005 ----------

NSDAA taught me the basics of dental assisting and gave me a chance for a career. With the friendly staff and the small classes, the setting of the school is homelike. I graduated feeling confident that I could easily walk out and get a position within the dental field. I now work in Issaquah with Eastside Pediatric Dental Group. I love my job and am happy I chose NSDAA. Without all the help from Cynthia, the staff, and the great class schedules, I wouldn't have been able to accomplish what I have with a full-time work schedule. Thank you, NSDAA, for all that you do!

Cynthia, Class of 2004 ----------

I attended NSDAA in the winter of 2004. I graduated in April 2004 as valedictorian of my class of 10 students. While attending the academy, I learned so much in so many ways! The teachers are wonderful and extremely knowledgeable about what they teach. They really care about each individual student. The staff explains things in a way that each person can understand. It is very individualized since the classes are small. Two weeks prior to graduation I was offered a job at Dr. Gerald Becker's office in Shoreline. I went to interview with Dr. Becker and truly loved him and his staff, so I accepted the job and started two weeks later. I am still employed at Dr. Becker's office and I love every aspect of being a dental assistant.
