I heard about this school when I started searching for a program to become a DA. I came a cross this schooling program and saw nothing but good reviews! The experience I had with this program was a great blessing, I couldn’t have had a greater experience. Once I finished the program I was offered a position as a clinical assistant and have had nothing but fun and great experiences with other students! I highly suggest this school program.

I was told about this program from a girl I met while driving Uber. She commended this school and was very passionate about the material she learned and her instructor. I attended the May 6th – August 12th class and it has been very insightful. My courses took place on Tuesday and Thursday’s from 6pm to 9pm. My instructor was Ms. Jennifer. Ms. Jennifer has been extremely helpful in regards to explaining the information, providing examples that were easy to remember by using a sound or maybe even making it a little funny which has helped me tremendously when all the information is presented. This class also provides you with hands on experience which was a lot of fun. I do not recommend missing a class because it can mess up your pace and falling behind is not recommended. At the end of the course they provide you with cover letters and resume assistance to help when applying to position during/after completion of the course. This program has helped me gain knowledge in an ever lasting and growing field that now enables me to help make customers everyday regain confidence, one day at a time, one smile at a time. Highly recommend.

I was told about this school from a close friend before I started and she loved every single bit of the program, help and motivation she got from her teachers. I decided to better myself by going here as well and giving it a shot. This course proved to be nothing more than one of the best programs I’ve been able to get into and graduate from. Every single class we were helped as much as possible and always went back over things if we didn’t understand. This program not only help me gain a certificate of Dental Assisting for my career, but also helped me find my first job as a dental assistant while I was still in the program and I couldn’t be happier with how much my life has progressed in just 13 weeks. I will always speak the best about this school and I know whoever takes it will do the same!

10/10 I recommend this school. Time and frequency of the class is great for people working full time as well as people with children. Jennifer is a lot of fun to learn from as well. I was able to get a job right out of school, so I can’t complain!!!

I attended Sunrise School of Dental Assisting in 2016. It was a very convenient program with it only being two days a week (at night) it’s the perfect career opportunity especially for someone who needs to work while going to school. Since graduating, I have had many opportunities open up one of which is working at Sunrise itself. I had an excellent instructor who helped as much as she could to prepare us for a job in the dental field. I would highly recommend signing up, you won’t regret it!
