Dental Assisting Class – Are You Ready to Be Elite?

Dental Assisting ClassPlease join us in welcoming our Elite Dental Assisting Class!!! These ladies are dynamic, fun and ready to go! In just the little time we have had them, we have been so impressed with their motivation and determination to start a new career!

Elite Dental Assisting classes are direct and straight to the point, no messing around!! We couldn’t be happier with this group of students, they are all exceptional!! They are attentive and loving every minute of the hands on (can’t say that for the tests, but they all hang tough and study hard!!).

Our students are dedicated, proactive and positive thinkers! We love seeing the growth in our students as they learn the language of dental assisting. A special thank you to our students who continuously send pictures for us to post! A special welcome to our winter students!!

There is always a reason to smile when you’re excited to learn and challenge yourself. We are moving into the second month of the course and the students are busy preparing their skulls for the anatomy lectures coming up. At this point of the course their brains have been filled with so much information, it’s nice to know that with the hands on training and the many many hours working at their externship sites (minimum 70 hours to 130 hours), this information will be absorbed through practice practice practice!

skulls-paintedBecause we are a short term course, our students must be extra motivated, extra dedicated and extra hardworking! Every one of our students are exactly that, and then some! Frequently we will find our students studying together before class. We love seeing the closeness and friendships that each class brings!

Is Dental Assisting a career for you? We are enrolling now for our winter and spring sessions, so don’t wait!!! Call us now at 360-433-0788, or email us at web@dentalassistantportland.com for more information and to see if you qualify.

Dental Assisting – Hired Before Graduation

CONGRATULATIONS TO ADDI FOR GETTING HIRED BEFORE GRADUATION!!
Almost everyone has experienced being trapped in a job that becomes extremely boring, doesn’t pay enough to make ends meet, doesn’t offer any benefits, is not challenging, and doesn’t make you feel proud of what you do for a living. Or maybe you’ve just been out of the work force for so long you don’t know what to do? If this is how you’re feeling, then it’s time to consider a career opportunity!

Hired Before Graduation

There is a great need for Dental Assistants in today’s market place. Dental Assisting is a recession proof job because no matter what the economy is like, everyone has to have Dental work done. A Dental Assistant can find a job anywhere in the United States!

Working in a Dental Office is considered one of the most rewarding jobs because of the professional work environment, the challenge and variety of daily tasks, and meeting new patients knowing that you are helping them. The pay is great with most offices offering terrific benefits.

Dental Assistant – Learning Skills & CPR for a new Career

dental assistant xrayAs our September class is coming to a close, we are so impressed with how far these students have come! They dove right into the course and set out to become an Elite Dental Assistant!

These amazing women worked together to study and learn a new career. They have learned the value of hard work and what it means to selflessly put other’s needs ahead of their own, one of the best qualities of a dental assistant!

As their 13 weeks comes to a close (boy that way fast!!!), we marvel at what an amazing group of women we have come to know, admire and appreciate.

dental assistant cprA highlight of the program is the CPR class! If you’ve ever taken a 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!

These dedicated students are working hard, studying intensely and preparing for their new career as dental assistants. We couldn’t be more proud!

dental assistant scopeDental Assisting is a lot more than just sucking spit!! Dental Assistants are artists! Among the many skills a student will learn is learning to make impressions, grinding and trimming models, then creating custom trays for teeth whitening. They learn to create temporary crowns, sealants and all the while keeping the patient’s best interest at heart!

If you have the motivation and desire to change your life, call us now to set up an appointment (360) 433-0788, or email us at: web@dentalassistantportland.com or you can check out our dental assistant google reviews.

Scholarship Winner – Krista Schultz

Once a year Elite Dental Assisting Academy selects one or more worthy recipients for our scholarship award. We are proud to honor Krista Schultz, a very worthy choice.

krista-main

Krista has extraordinary drive and determination! Krista hustled during the very first weeks of the course to solidify her externship with Wendel Dental, and started putting in her hours very early. Krista is a loving Mommy, and that love shines through in her ability to work with others.

krista-happyShe has a unique ability to learn quickly and apply those learned skills in a professional manner. Not only does she learn quickly, she can also easily translate her knowledge into teachable instruction which is extremely helpful when pairing up with classmates who may need a little extra time perfecting a procedure. Her southern accent together with her fearless smile and compassion will light up any office!!

We at Elite feel that Krista will excel in her new career as a Dental Assistant and are excited for what the future has in store for her! CONGRATULATIONS KRISTA, WE ARE VERY PROUD OF YOU!

I Love Being A Dental Assistant

5-star-Samantha-MI attended Elite Dental Assisting Academy and am so happy that I did!! It was a hard course, but the teacher and staff made it easy to get through. The cost was extremely reasonable compared to long term courses.

The lectures, labs, and internship helped prepare me for working as a dental assistant in the real world. I love being a Dental Assistant, it’s challenging and rewarding, and I love meeting people.

Thank you Elite for offering a short term course with long term rewards!
