JENNIFER SCHRIVER, DAII, RDH– Instructor – Raleigh

I began my career in dentistry in 1970 when I graduated the Dental Assisting Program at UNC Chapel Hill. The next two years was spent in obtaining a Degree in Dental Hygiene. I was in private practice as a Registered Dental Hygienist for 17 years. I later returned to UNC-CH and obtained a Bachelor Degree in Dental Auxiliary Teacher Education. I continued in Masters Degree courses in my degree studies. I joined Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals enjoying a career as a Professional Sales Representative, followed by a Sales Training position, and ultimately a District Sales Manager position. I left COP and took a position as the Director of Sales with Discus Dental located in Culver City, CA. I took a brief sabbatical from dentistry with a Sales Manager position in Home Improvement Sales and Management followed by two entrepreneurial ventures in retail. I currently reside in Youngsville, NC with my husband and mother. I love teaching.  My goal at Sunrise is to create passion in my students to achieve excellence in their new career in dentistry, as well as reaching a personal benchmark in life. I truly desire to help teach students obtain the skills they need to have a rewarding career in the dental profession.

TAMMY HALES, CDA – Fayetteville – Instructor

I received by Dental Assisting Diploma from FTCC in 1991. After graduating from FTCC I went on to take the DANB exam to become a Certified Dental Assistant. Since that time I have been working at Cape Fear Oral Surgery as the Lead Dental Assistant. I have been teaching at Sunrise School of Dental Assisting since 2010. I love meeting all the new students and working side-by-side with them as they learn all about the wonderful world of dental assisting! I have lived in Fayetteville, NC my entire life and I have grown very familiar with all the area dental professionals.

I am married and have 2 beautiful children and 1 grandchild. In my little bit of spare time I love to play volleyball!
