Just thought you’d like to look over my shoulder and see how we test our students. Prior to starting my own dental assistant school, I interviewed countless dental assisting school graduates for positions within my offices.
Time after time I was baffled at how little these graduates knew about dentistry and dental assisting. I remember interviewing a graduate from one of the national chains who had spent over a year of her life and over $15,000 at this “institute”. This poor girl did not know her teeth numbers, or the difference between a scaler and a high speed.
Well, in thirteen weeks, our graduates run circles around the graduates of these other programs. We utilize hands on practical approach and get the students practicing and getting comfortable with general dentistry procedures from day one.
Check out this video of me giving a practical exam to one of my students.
Just remember, this student had zero experience with dentistry ten weeks prior to this video being taken. She got a job before she even graduated from the class.
All the Best,
Mark Costes, DDS
