"The RDA ADAEP Pathway II is a fantastic opportunity for assistants to earn credit to sit for their RDA Board Exam. I personally found that the course prepared me very well for all facets of the exam. Ms. Weber and Ms. Sprague have all the experience and knowledge necessary for assistants to be successful. Both instructors give individual attention and time to students to be better assistants."

"Attending WCC for Dental Assisting was one of the best decisions I ever made. After working in the dental field for ten years without any professional training, I was a little apprehensive about my success. However, the dental assisting instructors made sure that I succeeded. They were always quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had, and encouraged me all along the way. I was inspired and challenged by the faculty to be a dental assistant of excellence. I firmly believe that WCC would be the right choice for any dental assisting student."

"I just wanted to say thank you to the Dental Assisting Program at Washtenaw Community College. I've attended a number of colleges and universities and this by far was one of the best experiences I've had. It was great to have instructors that were willing to answer questions and give me one on one time when I needed extra help to master a skill. If you are ready and eager to learn, they will assist you in achieving your goals. I didn't have much prior dental assisting experience, but with the guidance of the instructors I gained new skills and techniques. Upon completion of the program, I felt confident about taking my board exam, and I'm happy to report, I passed!"

I can't say enough about this program and the instructors at Washtenaw Community College."

"Being a member of one of the first graduating classes in the Dental Assisting program at WCC, I have had the opportunity to watch the program grow. I received a good basic knowledge of dentistry along with hands on experience. The students of today do a clinical rotation thru our office. I am impressed with the level of clinical skills which they have acquired."

"The dental assisting program at Washtenaw Community College made it convenient for me to attend classes on a part-time basis, so I could further my career and still be able to work at the same time. Not only did I learn more about dentistry to advance where I was but I also learned about myself as an individual and what my capabilities are."
