What People Are Saying

Jessica W.,Woodland,


I GOT HIRED BEFORE I GRADUATED! Along with many of my classmates, we learned the skills and knowledge needed to become a dental assistant and got a dental assisting job before we even graduated. Elite Dental Assisting Academy is amazing! They have an awesome instructor, great classroom out of an actual dental office with great equipment for learning. I highly recommend this program if you are thinking of becoming a dental assistant. This school helps you succeed in every aspect.

What 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.

I got hired one week after graduating from Elite Dental Assisting Academy! I highly recommend this school to everybody! Not only is this school a quick three month course, but they prepare you so well for jumping right into the work field. This school teaches you everything you need to know and they do it with such a helping hand. Thank you Elite for everything you did for me, I will continue to recommend your school

Elite 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 🙂

I 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!

I got a job before I even graduated! I think that this course was so worth the investment I made! Tracee Godfrey is the best instructor you could ask for! She is there for her students 100%. She makes your learning and employment a priority.

I was able to start earning back the investment that I made before I was even out of school. Elite is a comprehensive course and is a lot of work but is totally worth all the time we put in.

Dental Assistant from Portland, OR

I started working as a Dental Assistant right after graduating!  This school was absolutely worth every penny, and here’s the reason why…. Tracee Godfrey!! She is the best instructor I could have ever hoped for. She was always eager to answer all my questions, and let me tell you, I had a LOT of questions. She went above and beyond the call of duty everything single day. She helped me in and outside the class room, and was ALWAYS there for me. She genuinely wanted to help you learn.

I definitely do not think I would have finished this course if it wasn’t for our instructor Tracee Godfrey. She made everything worth it. Because of her I was ready (with loads of knowledge) for my first job as a Dental Assistant which I started working as soon after graduating. I felt well equipped for work, all because of Tracee, thank you!
