I LOVED going to school here. I paid a minimal amount out of pocket because I used the MYCAA offer as a military spouse which was very helpful. During my externship I was offered a job and have been employed ever sense! Next March 2020 makes six years in dentistry. Karen and Debbie were wonderful and I have knowledge about dentistry coming out of the school that was applicable to my job right away. They set the foundation for my successful career. Would give more starts if I could!
I am beyond excited to be going to school for Dental Assisting! The instructors have been very informative, tuition was a breeze to get started, the classroom is comfortable and the staff and instructors are amazing on a personal level, as well as the awesome classmates! The support during this new journey has pushed away any the anxiety, so I'm able to feel confident and concentrate on the class! Thanks for being so great PDA!
I am currently enrolled in this course right now and I couldn't be happier. I am a military spouse and I have done my research to find the best affordable school that would give me the professional training needed in becoming a Certified Dental Assistant. I'm confident to say that Practical Dental Assisting of Virginia Beach is that school. The hours fit my schedule. My instructor Mrs. Karen Vess is very informative, and I'm learning alot that I feel will definitely help me to become successful in the future. Furthermore I will definitely suggest anyone that wants to become a Certified Dental Assistant to look no further than PDA of VA Beach.
Since I am a spouse, I move all at the time and at one point I had to choose a SCHOOL to finish my CERTIFICATION in Dental Assisting. After a lot of research I found this school and after the interview I fell in love. Mrs. Karen Vess is a kind and professional person and for sure she knows about being a DENTAL ASSISTANT. She dedicates time for her students and she is always there if you need a shoulder. Being a teacher is not only how much you know, but also how must you care about your students. About preparations for other CERTIFICATIONS; I'm sorry but if you study you will pass your exams and if you need Mrs. Karen she never turns her back to anyone. The classes are small and intimate allowing more attention from the teacher to the students. Again, Thank you!!!!
