Dental Assistant Graduation – Got What it Takes?

Dental Assistant Graduation for our winter class. Congratulations to all of our wonderful students! We had a full house last night at the Marriott for our graduation ceremony. It’s wonderful to see the amount of support our students receive from family and friends! The time passes quickly when you study hard and are totally involved with learning what is required of you. These students made new life-long friends and were encouraging to each other in a very positive way. We look forward to seeing them in the future and watching them grow in their new career!!

Dental Assistant Graduation

da-portland-pigs-footIs that a pigs foot????? Why yes it is!! Here at Elite Dental Assisting Academy we believe the students should get a feel for placing sutures on one of the closest things to human skin. Although Dental Assistants can’t place sutures, if they understand how they’re put in they can better understand how to take them out.

An absolute PERFECT day for the beginning of  class!! The sun was shinning, blossoms everywhere, and excited students ready for a new beginning!! They have just ended their second week of class and are finishing up three certifications! Our  students are a fantastic, enthusiastic group ready to accomplish their goals!!!

da-portland-studentIs Dental Assisting a career for you? We are enrolling now for our next sessions, so don’t wait!!! Call us now at 360-433-0788, or email us for more information and to see if you qualify.

Dental Assistant Training – Do You Have What it Takes?

Have You Considered A Career as A Dental Assistant? As a Dental Assistant, you can earn good money with nice benefit packages in many cases. A Dental Assistant career allows you to work anywhere in the United States, plus the demand for Dental assistants is growing by leaps and bounds! There are many reasons why it makes sense to think about beginning Dental Assistant training.

Dental Assistant Training

This class of students are a fantastic, enthusiastic group ready to accomplish their goals! Thank you for choosing Elite! We have been posting pictures from this class so friends and family can get a good idea of the dedication and hard work they put in this semester!

Are you multilingual and want to start dental assistant training? With many diverse cultures in the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area, there is always a need and request for students who speak different languages. We have had many students who speak two, three and even four languages! Speaking multiple languages is always an asset to any career, and especially for Dental assistants.

cpr-classOne of our first classes at Elite Dental Assisting Academy is a hands on, scenario based, sweat breaking, down and compressing CPR class. If you’ve ever taken a CPR class where the teacher is throwing out different “choking” or “lack of breathing” scenarios, you’ll understand the feeling of jumping for joy because you think you’ve revived that dummy only to see it’s found something else to choke on before you can finally pass the test! There is no falling asleep during this fast paced hands on CPR session, and you can see by the photos the students are not only learning but having a fun time!

Dental Assistant Job Before Graduating!

Dental Assistant JobWhat a fantastic experience. It had everything I could have asked for! It was fast and busy, but I had help if I needed it. It was within my budget, but I never felt like the effort put forth toward my education was cheap.

Kristin helped me prepare for exactly what I needed to get into the work force, and because I worked hard, I got a dental assistant job before graduating! A small class meant more focus on individuals, and I made some friends that I hope I keep in contact with.

Dream Come True

Dream Come TrueElite has been a complete dream come true for me. When I came into this program I was scared, unsure and hesitant to start this fast paced program. The first night in class, all my fears were gone and I knew this was the best school I could have enrolled in.

Now, after 13 short weeks. I am a Dental Assistant!! If it weren’t for my amazing teacher and everyone involved in Elite, I wouldn’t be where I am today. All I can say is that if you are thinking about coming to Elite… DO IT! You won’t regret your decision 🙂

Elite Dental Assisting

There are many job opportunities for the qualified dental assistant to assist dentists and hygienists in the dental profession. Although many desire to be trained in this profession, there are challenges that prevent them from attending school. It is difficult for most people to attend school on a full time basis because they have to work to earn a living or have children to tend. The expense necessary to finance schooling in a major college is also another reason most people are discouraged in pursuing further education. We feel that the dental assisting program offered at our school will meet these challenges. The night time schedules are designed to accommodate working students. The very affordable tuition fee will also solve the financing issues for most prospective students. Students are accepted regardless of sex, race, age, marital status, religious creed, ethnic or national origin.

If you are interested in submitting a scholarship application, please call 360-433-0788 or email us. All applications this year will be through email only. All applications are due by May 22, 2016 and the winner/s will be announced June 1, 2016.

Dental Assistant Career – Have The Passion?

Start a new career as a Dental Assistant!!!! One of the PERKS for our Dental Assisting students is a full professional Teeth Whitening kit to whiten their own teeth (a $300+ value)! Each student gets to make their own impressions and teeth whitening trays. I think that’s one of the reasons our graduates have such big smiles!! They love showing off their newly whitened teeth!

We have highly experienced teachers (one of which is currently holding the State Presidency for the ADAA, American Dental Assisting Association for the State of Washington), and the other who has years of experience in staff training for front office as well as training Dental Assistants. Both are trained educators as well as having years of Dental Assisting experience.

We have formed alliances with many Dental Offices who have volunteered their time to help train our students in different aspects of their education in order to help them form a better understanding of the variables in office protocols. This helps the students get better dental assistant jobs and get them faster.

We find externship offices for our students because we know it’s the best way for them to get hired.

We also have close relationships with different manufacturers who send representatives out to train and certify our students regarding different products and procedures.
