I am super happy I picked Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting to get my training. Terina and Jeri are amazing instructors. They are very professional, patient and dedicated. They also made learning enjoyable and fun! I am recommending SLADA to my friends! Yenifer

If you are looking to get into the Dental Assisting field, I would definitely recommend SLADA. I really liked the evening hours, it worked great for me and my full time job. Thank you everyone for the enjoyable environment. Eneidi

Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting is an amazing program! Terina and Jeri are so fun and helpful while helping us learn all the program materials. I would recommend this program to anyone that is thinking about being a Dental Assistant. Brynn

Deciding to enroll into Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting was one of the best, life changing decisions I have ever made. This school is extremely hands-on and gave me the exact skills I will need to be an excellent Dental Assistant. The 10 weeks went by so fast and I am so sad that it's over! The teachers, Jeri and Terina, are so amazing at making sure we all learned what we needed and always made class fun and are so understanding of everyone's individual needs. If anyone is wanting to enter the dental field, I would highly recommend this one! It has opened so many new doors for me and I will forever be grateful for SLADA! This school has changed my life! Definitely a 10/10 on the scale of an incredible, fun, easy and caring school! Thanks a billion for everything Jeri and Terina! Paisen

I loved every second of learning at SLADA! The instructors are some of the nicest people and very willing to answer all questions I had. I'm forever grateful that I found Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting, they've helped guide me into the dental profession. The instructors made me excited to attend and I couldn't wait to see what we were learning next. I would recommend joining this program to anyone, it's a simple curriculum and lots of hands-on lab work. Perfect for a visual learner. Thank you so much Terina and Jeri.Katelynn

Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting is all around an amazing school! The hands-on education and constant practicing is what makes this school stand out. Having instructors who care about you personally, as well as your education is what I love about Jeri and Terina! This has been one of the best decisions I've ever made and I would recommend this school to anyone! I've truly enjoyed my time here and am going to miss my instructors and new friends! I LOVE SLADA!Breanna

I really liked what the program had to offer. When we first started, I thought it would just be lectures and book work, but it's quite the opposite. There is lecture to learn the information needed but there is more hands-on which makes it more fun and you feel more involved. From the beginning you are given scrubs which automatically make you feel legit. The instructors are truly one of a kind and each has so much to offer. Whoever you are working with that day, you just learn so much and they are super patient and willing to teach. Literally there is no dumb question. Definitely sit with each teacher, even if you are reviewing a topic and you will learn a different technique or tip. I will really miss not only my instructors but my class. I had a blast! I wish my classmates all the best in our journey as Dental Assistants!Cristy

My favorite thing about attending Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting: I was hired in a dental office before graduation! I also loved the hands on activities we did. It was amazing being able to actually feel as if you were the assistant and not just a student. Coming to class didn’t feel like I was “going to school”, it felt as if I was going to learn and have fun doing something that I loved. Terina and Jeri were amazing, patient and understanding. They were always willing to help and answer questions no matter what! It was such an amazing experience and I can’t want to start my career as a Dental Assistant! Alisha

I had a really good and fun experience throughout the past 10 weeks. What I really liked about SLADA was getting the hands-on experience right after learning new terminology. Having tests twice a week kept me focused on everything that we’d learn. My classmates and instructors were lovely people that I looked forward to seeing during the week. I’m very happy that I made the choice to attend this school and I would recommend it to anyone! Claudia

Taking this class was one of the best decisions I have made. I plan on becoming a Dentist in the future and this school is a great way to introduce me into this profession. My favorite thing we did in class was taking impressions on each other and then making models of our teeth. The class is not difficult and Dr. Martinez, Terina and Jeri are amazing. They truly want to see everyone in the class to succeed. I have made lifetime friendships in this school. Bryson

My time at SLADA was great! It was definitely worth all the hard work we put in during the 10 weeks. I got to meet amazing, kind and funny people. Having tests everyday with my busy schedule make it challenging, but I managed. I am going to miss this school a lot. It is a great school because of it’s education and affordable price. The instructors did everything they could so everyone could understand the information. Cristian

My time at Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting was so fun! The first day I felt so welcomed and already so comfortable with everyone. They made it very fun to learn the terms of each procedure. It was also very convenient because you weren’t here everyday and you were still able to have a life and not feel like all your time was consumed by school. Another thing that was very helpful was that you could retake a test if you needed to. I am very happy that I chose to come to this school and would recommend it to anyone interested in Dental Assisting. The best part is, I was HIRED one week after graduation!!! Abby

My experience at the Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting was great! It’s a school, but for me it didn’t feel like school because I enjoyed coming. Jeri and Terina are amazing! They actually take their time to make sure you’re understanding everything. They really show that they care! I really liked the way everything was taught. I am more of a visual learner and we did a lot of hands-on activities, I think that’s why I thought it was pretty easy. They do challenge you because of all the tests but it’s a great school and anyone looking to become a Dental Assistant should come here. I’m for sure going to miss everybody! Angela

I loved learning Dental Assisting at SLADA! The combination of lecture and lab helped me feel confident that I was learning relevant skills and could apply myself well in a dental office. The small class size made it feel friendly and everyone’s learning styles were definitely accommodated. All the staff and students have been so amazing! I will miss everyone! Ally

SLADA is awesome! I have loved the way that Jeri and Terina instruct! They give us as much hands-on learning as possible. The classes were easy to follow and there was always someone to ask if I ever had any questions. Jeri and Terina are all about helping you succeed! I'm so thankful that I chose SLADA over any other school in this area. If you're willing to work hard and have a good time, SLADA is the best choice! McKaylla

This was an amazing experience for me. The instructors really care for your learning experience and are always so willing to help you learn the material. The environment you are in makes the learning fun and enjoyable. You really get the hands-on experience, which is the best way to learn. I feel more than ready to start my new career! Jael

Class is almost over and I'm so sad to go. I have learned so much over the last couple of months. I'm so glad that I chose SLADA to introduce me to the dental field. Terina, Jeri and Dr. Martinez along with Rachel, Amanda, Emily and Kierstin are so wonderful. If you are interested in learning about dentistry, this is the place to start, I'm sure of it! Melissa

I really loved attending SLADA! I loved the small class size and hands-on training. The instructors are awesome and make you feel so comfortable. I made a lot of new friends and even though it was only a 10 week course. I am sad to leave! SLADA changed my life for the better and I cannot wait for a new career! Emily

The thing that I liked most about this course is how small and hands-on it is. Since it's not a big class you get more one on one time with the instructors. Everyone is always so willing to answer any questions that you have. Not only is it an educational experience, it's also very FUN! I made a lot of new friends and I'd do it all over again! Karla

I loved going to this class everytime! The instructors were always welcoming and willing to accommodate our needs. They taught each person how they needed to be taught. Class was always fun and interactive and overall I rate this class 11 out of 10!!! If you want to have fun, learn some awesome things about dentistry and meet amazing people, TAKE THIS CLASS!!! Amy

I loved every minute of this class and learned so much in a short amount of time. All of the instructors were great and easy to talk to. They did whatever they could to help each student. Also they are very supportive with getting job interviews, help on interviews and always wanted to stay updated on how our externships are going. I loved this amazing class! Heather

The instructors are amazing! They are very approachable and helpful. I would recommend this program to anyone looking into working in the dental field. I learned a lot and made some friends along the way. Thank you Jeri and Terina for dedicating y'alls time to making the program wonderful! Ella

I loved attending SLADA, Jeri and Terina and the rest of the instructors were very personable and cared about education! They are very helpful, encouraging and supportive of us finding jobs. I love my experience here and would absolutely encourage and recommend it to anyone who wants to go into Dental Assisting! Christina

I liked the teaching style, very good instruction and I learned a lot. All in all great! Sondra

SLADA has been such an amazing experience! I have learned so much over the past 10 weeks and am so thankful that the instructors helped me find an awesome job in an amazing dental office. Jeri and Terina are the absolute best! They just want you to do the best you can, and are always there to help. I loved the hands-on time in the lab and Friends and Family night. The labs helped me become more confident for my working interview. I would recommend this fast 10 week program to all my family and friends interested in Dental Assisting! Daniella

I am very sad that this program is coming to an end! Jeri and Terina are awesome! I love how you can be a parent in the mornings and a student at nights. It definitely does require a lot of dedication and time to study but it was worth it. I was hired before I graduated! I'm going to miss everything about SLADA! Roseli

The fast 10 week program was exactly that. The hours for me were very do-able as I commuted 2 hours each way for class and I was still able to maintain a part time job. This program can easily fit into any schedule with enough dedication. Curriculum is easy to understand and taught well by experienced staff who would stop and explain more, without any hesitation. Hands on lab was just as fun and easy to understand. The supporting instructors, Jordan, Rachel and Amanda were equally as helpful and fun! Dr. Martinez was always willing to answer any questions we had. I enjoyed the class thoroughly with all of the great classmates I had. Martine

I loved the time (hours) and pace of the class. It made you make sure to pay attention and stay focused. The instructors are amazing and will always be there to answer any questions that you might have. The class hours allowed me to continue to work full time and go to the program. The labs were such a big help not only because it showed you how to perform the task you learned about, but it also helped on how to react when certain situations happen. Overall an amazing program with some of the best teachers! Brandon

I really liked everything about this program. I love that it was only 2 nights a week and that it was only for a few hours. It worked really well with my schedule. I'm such a visual learner, that the hands on was perfect for me. All of the instructors were really helpful and overall I loved being here and having the experience to become a Dental Assistant. Jade

I love the night classes and I was still able to work during the day. The teachers are absolutely amazing and I loved that they were not bothered to go over things again. It if wasn't for SLADA, I don't know what I'd be accomplishing in my life right now. Thank you for everything that you taught me. I love SLADA xoxo Elexus

I am absolutely grateful for the SLADA program. I never thought I would be studying and learning more at this stage in my life until I read about the SLADA program. I was nervous and thought it was going to be impossible for me to get in because of the money, time and language, but after reading more and more, I became very excited. I told myself I could do it and nothing was going to stop me. When I got here, the instructors were very awesome, supportive and well...splendid. The time flies by because you get so into it. I am in love with this program and think everything is perfect. I'm going to miss coming here every Tuesday and Thursday, this is the best program ever! Yessica

I loved being a part of SLADA this semester, it was great to meet new people and learn as much as you can about Dental Assisting. The instructors are very knowledgable and are always there to help you along the way. There's a lot of information packed into the 10 week period but with the support of the staff, recent graduates and classmates behind you, it's all really worth it in the end. I'm going to miss the friends I met and wish everyone good luck in the future. A big Thank You of the staff, without your help and knowledge, I wouldn't be succeeding where I'm off to next! Megan

First off, I want to tell you ladies, Thank You for being so awesome and teaching me how to be a great Dental Assistant! I love this class! It was so great to meet you. SLADA is amazing. I couldn't have done it without all of your help and support. Kelsie

I really liked coming to class and the 10 weeks went by very fast! I really like the facility and I felt like everyone was really helpful and explained everything well. I like all the hands on lab that we did, it made the lectures easier to understand. Maria

I honestly liked everything! I wished it was longer than 10 weeks! My experience was great at SLADA and I really miss my classmates! Chiemi

I am so glad that I chose to attend SLADA instead of any other dental assisting course. The night hours worked best with my schedule and allowed me to work, go to college and still have a weekend with my family. The instructors and TA's took their time to explain any questions I had and I am sad that it's over. My instructors were very nice and engaged in my learning. Thank you SLADA for shaping me into a Dental Assistant and to begin my new career! Melanie

I loved everything about this program. Instructors were great and always giving great advice. They were always there to help and guide you through the program. It was a fast and flexible 10 week program. Thank you for everything, I really appreciate it! Jessica

I really liked this class and it has helped me a lot. I really liked the facility and the instructors were a big help and would really take their time to help us all. All of our classmates were so much fun! Barbara

I loved SLADA! I live 2½ hours away and would drive back and forth every school day. It was well worth the time and energy. The staff is very friendly and the class size was great for one-on-one lab time. Everything was so informative and in a fun environment. This is a great hands-on learning experience that I thoroughly enjoyed! Ivana

My overall experience was amazing! I felt like I was able to gain the information and skills I need to go out into the dental field and in only 10 weeks. Jeri, Terina and Jordan are very experienced and enthusiastic about what they do and from their teaching methods, I felt like I understood everything they taught. It was great to have lots of lab time to practice what we learned that night. I was offered two Dental Assisting jobs before I graduated! Thank you for everything that you shared and taught me, it has been a great experience! Through this program I was able to gain a love for dentistry and has showed me that I want to progress in the dental field. Thank you so much, I love you all! Marlee

I loved attending SLADA! Before I attended this program, I was a patient of Dr. Martinez and he was the best dentist I've ever had, so when it came time to pick which Dental Assisting program to attend, there was no question. I wanted to learn from the best and I was not disappointed. The instructors here are excellent! They are very knowledgable and kind. They were always there to help. I was able to learn things quickly and efficiently and I even able to find a Dental Assisting job right before graduation! I'm so glad I was able to attend this program to give me a starting point in my dental career. Emilyann

SLADA seriously changed my life. I drove 2 hours to attend this program and I'm 3 months out of high school. I not only got a job in Week 7 of the program, but I also got a boost to my career! I couldn't have done it without Dr. Martinez, Terina, Jeri and Jordan. What amazing smart people they truly are! They make you feel welcome and wanted and they truly care about your future. I was so blessed by this program, the people I met and the knowledge I encountered. I encourage anyone looking for a new start, to attend SLADA. You will never regret it! Dailee

I traveled from Mesa, AZ to attend this program. You could not have asked for better instructors than those at Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting! They were very supportive and were understanding and flexible to help me out. I'm so glad I attended SLADA, it was well worth my time and money! Cynthia

The entire Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting team is awesome! Terina and Jeri are both great instructors with tons of working experience to draw from. They genuinely care about their students and are committed to helping everyone succeed in the course and in future dental endeavors. I enrolled in this course as a Pre-Dental student wanting to get more hands-on dental experience that would compliment the doctor-shadowing that I have done. The experience was invaluable and I would highly recommend this course to anyone considering Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene or Dental School! Steve (Pre-Dental Student)

I've had an interest in dental for awhile and I'm so glad I got the opportunity to take this class. I've met some really awesome people through this program and I love how helpful everyone was! I thought it was great to receive the iPad Mini's and make our own bleaching trays. The iPad was very helpful for our practical tests. I've learned so much in this class and I love the job opportunities we get notified about. I'd recommend this class to everyone! Sabina

I decided to take this class because I had an interest in going into Dental Hygiene and wanted to see if the dental profession was right for me. After taking this class, I am now positive that this is right for me! I loved coming to class and always had a fun time learning. The lectures were easy to understand and I was never confused of what we needed to know. The fill-in-the-blank binders are very helpful for taking notes and helped everyone pay attention without feeling overloaded with a bunch of information. Terina and Jeri were awesome instructors and were always very helpful when I had questions. I am so happy I took this class and I am positive what I have learned will help me pursue my dental career. I also know that taking this class will help me be a confident Dental Assistant until I can get into hygiene school. Breanne

I have loved being here at SLADA! The instructors are wonderful! They are very kind, helpful, funny and are great teachers! As I seek to find a job in the dental field, I feel confident and ready to work. You learn so much in a little time but everything works out great! Such a friendly environment and a fun atmosphere! Being here has made me excited to work in the dental field and further my career in this profession. I love SLADA, Terina and Jeri are the best! McKenzie

If one word can describe my experience from taking this program it is: AMAZING! Terina, Jeri and Jordan are great instructors, they are helpful and they make sure you understand what they are teaching. I am sad to see my time come to an end but very excited to see what the future holds for me in the dental field! I am ready to take what I've been taught and apply it to the real world. If you are thinking about the dental field, think of SLADA for the place to do it! Amanda (Pre-Dental Student)

Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting is an amazing program! Terina and Jeri have such a passion for dentistry and help you understand everything you need to know. They truly want to show us the joy of helping people achieve a beautiful smile. I would definitely recommend SLADA to anyone who has an interest in the dental field! Heather

Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting has given me a great learning experience. The class material was very informative and I loved the hands-on experience in the lab. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to work in the dental field! Kevin (Pre-Dental Student)

I have really enjoyed SLADA and it has helped me learn about the field of Dentistry. The program was very organized and we knew what to expect with each class, which helped me study for the tests. The instructors were great and made class fun! I think SLADA is a great Dental Assisting program! Chandra

My 10 Week experience here was great! It went by so fast and I learned a lot and felt very comfortable. Terina and Jeri are both so helpful if you have any questions, they are also very kind and patient. I loved this program and will miss everyone. Kadina

My time at Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting was fun! They do things very well and I like how organized they are. I also appreciated how they try to make sure everyone understands what and how to do things. I would definitely recommend this Dental Assisting program to everyone! Alexis

I think you guys are great! I learned so much about Dental Assisting and you make everything look so easy and fun. I hope one day to be as great as you! Alyssa

I really enjoyed SLADA. I liked how everything was laid out and organized. It made studying very easy and the tests were a lot less stressful and scary than I thought. My time here was enjoyable and fun!!! Shaylee

Where do I start? How about from the beginning: When I first started at SLADA I was very nervous until the first 5 minutes of class! Tom, Tooth Fairy (my nicknames for Jeri and Terina) and Jordan were very nice and so welcoming! They were always very open to answering questions and helping when we needed it. The labs were always fun too. I enjoyed being here and made some new lifelong friendships with some pretty awesome people. I've learned a lot of new things to help me in my future and I am forever grateful! Best School Ever! Shandra aka Strawberry Shortcake

I have really enjoyed taking the dental assisting course through Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting! The course went by very fast and I learned so many skills that I was able to apply immediately. Both Jeri and Terina are very knowledgable about the dental field and are excellent demonstrating all of the skills in the lab. I believe this course has given me a better understanding of what is expected of a dental assistant. This has well prepared me for a career as a dentist. Kierstin

I enjoyed the class and loved how patient and helpful Terina and Jeri were. I loved my classmates and made so many new friends. This class went by so quickly and the night schedule was perfect. It was such a great experience! Marissa

I really enjoyed the dental assisting course. As a pre-dental student at the U of U, I was unsure if the dental road was one I wanted to be on. However, after just a few classes with the lovely instructors, I realized how much I love the dental field! Both Terina and Jeri are very understanding of each student's needs and they do everything they can to help each student succeed. They instill in each student a monumental passion for patient care and the practice of dentistry. Patrick

Going into this program, I knew a little bit about what dental assisting was about. After a few classes, I saw just how much there was to learn about this profession. I mainly took this course as an exploration to see if dentistry was a career path that I wanted to take. I've had thoughts about dentistry for many years, and after this class I can say that my interest has been elevated! I feel that in these short 10 weeks, I have learned enough to comfortably seek employment as an entry level dental assistant. Knowing what I know now and the experience I gained from this course, I have the confidence to further my education in dentistry. This was a great experience to be a part of and I'm glad I made the decision to enroll! Branden

Thank you for helping me to gain confidence in myself! Before this program, I wasn't sure if dental assisting was what I wanted, but now, I know that dental assisting is where I want to be! Thank you to the instructors and my classmates. I had so much fun and made many new friends! Nika

Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting has been amazing! I feel that I have learned so much. Every class you get to do hands-on training in the lab and you're not just doing lectures all class. They really support all types of learners. I have had a dentist compliment me and tell me that I know much more than people who have spent more money and gone through a 10 month program. The instructors are fantastic! They are so helpful and are always willing to answer questions that we may have. Dr. Martinez is fabulous and he is always so happy to teach us or answer our questions. Everyone is so great and nice, everyone feels welcome here! I truly feel that this is the best Dental Assisting program out there. So good that I got hired on my second day of my externship! Alexis

First of all, I want to thank all of you very much for teaching and helping me to learn so many things that I didn't know before. I added so much knowledge to my dental education and career here in the United States. Being with you for 10 weeks was a great experience. It was a very short time and I wish I could spend more time with all of you to learn more! For me, it was amazing to learn about the advanced technology in the United States compared to my country! I loved and enjoyed this time with you and again, thank you so much for your support and help. Jeri, Terina and Dr. Martinez, I wish you the best in your dental careers! Yeruna (International Dentist)

I honestly could not have picked a better program. The instructors were there 110% to clarify any questions and I felt I could ask them anything! I loved the program and learned basically everything I needed to know to step into a dental office with confidence. Looking back and experiencing The Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting, I would not have even thought of attending another school. Thanks Terina and Jeri! Lisa

My experience at The Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting was excellent! I would give a '10' to Jeri, Terina and Dr. Martinez! I recommend this school to anyone who is considering a career in Dental Assisting! I would like to thank all of the instructors for their time and support in helping me become a Dental Assistant. Beatriz

What an absolutely wonderful program! Terina and Jeri are so helpful and inspiring and I loved every moment of it! I would 100% recommend this program to anyone who wants to explore a new career. It's fun, affordable and you learn so much. Thank you SLADA for introducing me to the wonderful world of Dentistry! Blair

SLADA is amazing! From day 1 when I first toured the school, the instructors gave me all the information I needed and more! They also kept in touch with me weeks after the tour. The instructors are so professional and personable at the same time. I was a little nervous to start a new career but I made one of the best decisions of my life! Dr. Martinez is always sure to answer our questions, he is such a great dentist and a great teacher. Terina and Jeri are two of the funniest and best people and make you feel so comfortable. They helped so much with job placement and everything along the way that I didn't want to graduate! Overall my experience at SLADA was again, amazing! Miranda

Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting was truly the best school I could have chosen! It is fast but you get all of the knowledge you need to become a great Dental Assistant. The instructors are great and they are passionate about dentistry. Dr. Martinez is awesome and so helpful! If you are looking for a friendly and professional environment, this is it! Marbella

I loved my experience at SLADA! My favorite part would have to be the wonderful instructors. They are always going out of their way to make sure everyone fully understands what we are learning. On top of that, the office is very clean and comfortable. SLADA gets two big thumbs up! Jessica

SLADA is a great place to learn about Dental Assisting! The instructors are great and truly care about their students. They are willing to help and are truly dedicated. I made so many new friends while attending this program and everyone was so friendly. The labs help you learn all the concepts of Dental Assisting. It was a fun and awesome learning experience! Juanita

I've really enjoyed coming to The Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting. We had a lot of fun and learned things quickly. The 10 weeks fly by and it's easy to pick up on the procedures during lab time. I've met some really nice people and made some really great memories. Candice

I'm so glad I ended up here, I couldn't have asked for a better school or with better people to work with! Sadie

I'm so happy that I chose The Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting. It was a great experience learning from such great instructors! They really took the time to teach us and help us succeed in every aspect. Dr. Martinez has such great knowledge on everything dental!
Thank you for everything SLADA! Gabrielle

SLADA is great! The instructors are very energetic and make the learning environment fun! I loved being able to learn about something and then 5 minutes later practice it in the lab. It made it a lot easier to learn that way.
Only a 10 week course makes it a lot easier to get through school and start working as soon as possible! Lindsay

In looking for a new path in life, I could not be happier in choosing SLADA. This fast paced, hands-on environment will help in my future endeavors in the dental profession and applying to Dental Hygiene school.
The staff's professionalism, knowledge and genuine love of the dental profession, are motivational to the students. I would hands down choose SLADA time and time again!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for inspiring's been a long time coming. Amy

This school is fantastic! I would recommend it to any and every one who has ever thought about going to work in the dental field. The program is fast, flexible and affordable. I loved that I could go to school while still working full time. I also loved that the program is quick, ten weeks and you are on your way to a new career!
I am so thankful for the opportunity to have come to this school. The teachers are fantastic. They are both wonderful at what they do and you can tell that it is their passion! I loved getting to have them as teachers. They are both incredibly patient and it is obvious that they want you to succeed. Dr. Martinez is also a great help when you have a question. I know that both teachers genuinely care and hope for the best for each of their students.
I loved the small class size, I really felt like we were able to bond. Not only have I gained knowledge of Dental Assisting, I have gained lifelong friends. I love that while learning we were able to have a lot of fun too! I never would have thought that school could be so much fun. I have loved absolutely everything about this class! If I could, I would do it all over again!
I am so excited to start working in the dental field and I am confident that what I have learned at Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting has given me a promising future as a Dental Assistant!
Thanks Jeri and Terina, you guys are the best! Brandee

I'm so glad I had the chance to attend Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting! They helped me learn the skills necessary to enter the job field quickly, and the iPad mini was a great tool to help me study! Lauren

I took my dental assisting course through Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting and I have to say it was an amazing experience. The instructors were wonderful and very helpful, you can tell that they truly care about the success of their students. It wasn't like taking a regular lectured class either. The lectures were fun and the lab time was a blast. I've learned so much about assisting from this class, that I now feel prepared and excited to work in the dental field. Thanks for all your help and support SLADA! Jordan

I'm so happy I chose Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting. Not only is the facility beautiful but the instructors and Dr. Martinez are amazing. The class sizes make it easy for them to focus on each individual and can give you one on one time and any extra help you may need. They truly care and want you to succeed. If I had it all over to do again, I would choose them every time. Brenda

It was a great experience learning from both instructors. They were both really nice and understanding. They helped on everything that they could. I feel like they did a great job explaining everything to me and I would like to thank them for all of their support. Erika

I loved my time here at The Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting. I learned so much and have enjoyed the instructors every step of the way. I was looking to learn from professionals and I have to say that Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting exceeded my expectations! They have proven to be superb in their knowledge as well as having cutting edge technology in dentistry. Alissa

I really enjoyed being a student at The Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting. I made the decision to come based on their fair tuition pricing and the expedited course time of 10 weeks! Terina and Jeri supply the students with interesting academic and clinical information at each class. The most helpful way to learn is to apply the "book work" knowledge to the dental lab immediately after learning about them in lectures. I am also a college student, and this Dental Assisting course is the first one I have taken where, upon completion, I have a marketable and professional skill set that I can put to use right away! Thank you Jeri, Terina and Dr. Martinez! Kerri

I loved everything about this program, it has been an amazing 10 weeks learning new things and working in the lab. I'd like to thank Terina and Jeri for working so hard to make everything perfect for us and always giving us 100% of their time and attention. I'd also like to give a shout-out to Dr. Martinez for always giving us pointers and advice to guide us in the future. I know my dental journey won't stop here. This program has made me so much more excited to become a Dentist. Thank you for helping me start my journey! I promise to always make you proud! Like Dr. Martinez always says, "Hasta-Lasagne" Soulmaz

I joined this program to get a first-hand knowledge of Dentistry and Dental Assisting in the United States and I can safely say I was not disappointed. The practical knowledge and techniques that I have learned here came in handy when I went into clinics as an extern, which I believe otherwise would have not been possible. The instructors Terina and Jeri are awesome. They teach you everything you need to know about Dental Assisting, from dental techniques to code and conduct in the dental office and the ways to deal with tricky situations. Dr. Martinez was kind enough to let me come to his clinic and observe him doing dental procedures and to complete my internship with him. He helped me understand various aspect of dentistry, treatment planning and procedures. He managed to answer all my queries taking time from his busy schedule. This experience is definitely going to be an asset to my pre-dental experience and will help me afterwards too. Besides the Dental Assisting Certificate, I also received CPR and Dental Radiology. Other schools take more than 10 months to teach you the things this school taught me in 10 weeks. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who is looking for quality education and a career in Dental Assisting. Ritika (International Dentist)

The teachers are fantastic! I've learned so much throughout this program! It was super fast and I wish it was longer because SLADA is such a great environment to be in. The other students were wonderful too and I believe this is the best program to attend and I wouldn't have gone to any other place! Coming here makes learning interesting and exciting and I loved all the hands-on training that we received in the lab. This is hands down, the very best program anyone can attend! Edith

Terina and Jeri are great instructors! They are amazing, funny and super duper sweet! I learned so many things and enjoyed all of the classes. I will miss this program very much! Luisa

This program is very "hands-on" because of the smaller class size. The instructors are phenomenal and they are awesome teachers and friends! I looked forward to coming to class every week. They really want to help you and make the learning fun! It's sad to think that my time here is over, if I had the chance to go back and do it over again, I totally would! A great program! Samantha

I absolutely loved this class! I learned so much and met a lot of really cool, life-long friends. Terina, Jeri, Jordan and Dr. Martinez helped me so much. I came into this class knowing absolutely nothing about dentistry and I'm leaving knowing more than I could ever imagine! I am so thankful that I chose this school to come to. I never felt afraid to ask questions and my instructors were always eager to help us understand. I am so glad I chose this school! Triniti

Not only did I love the class, but they gave me everything I needed to feel confident in the Dental Assisting job market. I even had a job before I graduated! I will miss this class and everyone in it! Katie

This class is really what you need to jump start a career in Dental Assisting. Jeri is a very good teacher and is always drawing amazing pictures to help us understand complex or in-depth dental concepts. Terina always brings the fun and energy to every class and is always giving us suggestions and tips that you will not find in any textbook. I'm going to miss this class and the energy and fun we had! Samantha

I love this class! Before I started, I was very nervous, but after the first day, all of those feelings went away. Terina, Jeri and Jordan really helped a lot and were very patient with us throughout all the lab sessions. I am so happy I took this class and loved every minute of it! I am very excited to start a career doing what I love! Thanks for everything Terina, Jeri and Jordan! Tasia

SLADA is a fast paced course and very fun. All of the instructors are helpful and explain every concept until you understand it. My classmates who came to class with me are awesome and everyone was so helpful. It's the most fun that I've had in school! Penelope

The Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting program has been life changing and it opened up doors to a new career that I couldn't be more excited to start.

For a long time I have been aimless as far as a career path. I have been wanting to enroll in Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting for 2 years now that I've finally attended the course, I've never been so proud of myself or any of my previous life decisions. The people to thank for my life changing experience are my instructors, Jeri, Terina, Jordan and Dr. Martinez. The difference between them and every other place you could choose to go, is that they're sincerely passionate about what they're teaching and they're compassionate about US. They care. Because of them and what they've taught me, I am overwhelmingly passionate about the dental profession. They've made me become more confident in myself as a person, as well as a more confident and proud Mommy-to-be. The only downfall to this, is I have NO idea what I'm going to do with my Tuesday and Thursday nights now! They've become my two favorite days of the week, because of SLADA. I am so sad to be leaving. With this being said, Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting will always be my #1 recommendation! Rachel

I started one of my most outstanding journeys by enrolling at Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting. In the 8th week of my program, I felt confident and happy to seek out a job at at Pediatric dental office that I love and I enjoy going to work everyday! I couldn't have done it without Terina, Jordan, Jeri and Dr. Martinez. They are all a great group of instructors. I will miss everyone, it was an amazing 10 weeks! Good luck to all the new SLADA students! Ingrid

SLADA is so great! It is a super fun environment to learn in! The instructors are very helpful and knowledgable and it's obvious that they want us to succeed and understand everything that they are teaching. I found the schedule to be perfect! Since class was only 2 nights a week, I was able to work full time and succeed in school. I have loved every minute and would recommend this to anyone! Maddie

Signing up for Salt Lake Academy of Dental Assisting is by far one of the best decisions that I have made. I have learned so much in the last 10 weeks and feel ready and so excited to start in the dental world. The instructors are wonderful and make each class easy to understand as well as fun! I don't think I have every before been so sad to see a class end! Chelsea

I enjoyed SLADA so much! It was an amazing and fun experience. I loved working with everyone, meeting new people and making new friends. I have learned so much and I have a love for Dentistry!

My experience at SLADA was amazing. I loved everyone in class and I got along with everyone.

Thank you for everything! Yarlis
