The Fayetteville Technical Community College Dental Assistant program is a quality program that provides the education and training that any dentist assistant could need, from instrument exchange, oral evacuation, to some radiology training.
However, Fayetteville Tech is a general education college – while the Sunrise School of Dental Assisting focuses exclusively on certifying the student in dental assisting. While Fayetteville Tech offers the student a chance to take classes in many areas of medical training, Sunrise includes the following as part of its Dental Assistant certificate program:
This is a key difference between Sunrise and Fayetteville: classes versus certification. A dental assistant from Sunrise will have multiple areas of expertise when applying themselves in their career.
Another difference is the amount of time it takes for the certificate in dental assisting: 3 semesters at Fayetteville against the 13 week program at Sunrise. The Dental Assisting courses at Fayetteville Technical Community College and good, comprehensive, and educational; but the amount of time the student takes for these classes may distract from the immediate need for dentist assistants.
Sunrise’s one-semester long program allows the student to get immediate, up-to-date education while preparing them for the work force much sooner. This saves the student time, money, and stress. The length of Sunrise’s program also helps the student become more efficient in decision making, critical thinking, and independent development.

Prior to attending Sunrise School of Dental Assisting I had zero knowledge of the dentistry field and what this career choice would have in store for me. I had an awesome instructor, as well as current Dental Assistants at Sunrise, to help guide me and continue to be successful in my career. Everyone has been extremely helpful and I have had nothing less than a great experience. After graduation, I was hired on by Sunrise and couldn’t be more happy with my job and the decision to attend Sunrise School of Dental Assisting! Thank you all!!

Sunrise School of Dental Assisting provided me with the knowledge and skills I needed to begin my career in the Dental field. The instructors were very helpful and thorough in explaining the lessons and procedures to the class, and also made it a point to provide any additional help/tutoring before/after lessons for students. I enjoyed my experience at Sunrise School of Dental Assisting. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to receive the proper education necessary in order to excel in their Dental Assisting career

At Sunrise they give you the tools you need to become successful as a Dental Assistant. You have smaller numbers in the class, so you are able to have more one on one time with an instructor if needed. It is a fast paced class, but the instructor is willing to meet with you before class time if you need help. It is a good balance between lectures and actual lab time. You have great hands on experience and work with live “patients” (class members) in order to get an actual feel of what it would be like. The team at Sunrise Dental are very encouraging and push you to strive for your best. They also help with shadowing at different offices and even inform you if there are job openings at other offices. I would recommend this program to anyone and know that they would also get the great training that I have received!
