Thank you so much for everything! The Academy has been amazing from the day you walk into the door, you do not get that overwhelming feeling like you're in school. I will definitely miss coming to classes. The instructors were caring and dedicated, making certain we were taught properly. I was at my externship for only a few days and they hired me I will begin working for me full-time with awesome benefits, amazing!
I came in to meet Chris to sign up for the program because I heard so many wonderful things about the Academy. My aspiration is to be a dentist so I thought I'd take this program so I could get in the dental field quickly. Upon registering Chris had just received a telephone call from a Doctor, who is actually on the Florida Board of Dentistry and she immediately told me about him. I went and met the Doctor and he said he liked my personality and great you can start your externship right away and if all works out I will hire you. I have to say I'm gainfully employed and loving every minute of it thank you so much for changing my life Dental Assisting Academy of the Palm Beaches.
This is been such a rewarding experience getting into the program I had always wanted to go into Dental Assisting and change direction from just a retail job, well it was possible I moved here from Texax and found this program online sure enough it was the best decision of my life! In my fourth week at the academy, Chris gave me a lead of an orthodontist looking for an extern with possible hire employment, to get into a an orthodontist office is virtually impossible unless you have prior experience. Well I jumped on it very quickly met with the office sure enough I was hired, more than my dream come true and I am so happy and learning so much in such a short period of time. Thank you so much for changing my life in a new direction.
So many wonderful things to tell about the Academy Miss Autumn, Miss Marina, Miss Tricia and Chris are the best! They truly are caring and dedicated to the needs of their students and we can actually have fun and learn at the same time! Hands-on experience in this accelerated program is the best way to go. I had checked out the longer programs and I could not work and attend school at the same time so this is afforded me the opportunity to earn and income and change my career without going into debt. You changed my life thank you DAAPB!
