When you graduated from high school, or perhaps after you got your associate’s or bachelor’s degree, you might have thought you were done with classrooms and assignments. With some of today’s college graduates having a very hard time finding a job, however, now might be the time to look into adult education programs that can train you for a career. Are you wondering whether going back to school is the right answer for you? Take a look at this list of reasons why it might be a very good idea:
Gain a Competitive Edge
Some jobs allow you to be trained at the workplace. While these are great opportunities, employers are generally looking for someone who has all of the necessary training required. An adult education program can teach you what you need to know for a specific career, making you a more competitive candidate for whatever job you are applying for.
Make More Money
When you start a new career, you often begin at the bottom of the pay scale for that particular job. With a certificate or degree, however, you may be able to start a few rings up the ladder. Even if it doesn’t seem like a big difference in the beginning, starting at a higher salary adds up over time.
Boost Your Networking Power
While it shouldn’t be your sole reason for going back to school as an adult, taking classes and pursuing certification programs allows you to meet others in the same boat. These will be your colleagues and contemporaries once you graduate and begin working in your new career. Even if you don’t actually work together, fellow students are people to bounce ideas off of and meet for coffee to talk shop occasionally.
If you are currently working a job that you don’t love, or perhaps leaving the nest after sending your little ones off to school for the first time, looking into adult education programs allows you to stretch your brain and pursue something you enjoy. This can be fulfilling when other parts of your life might seem temporarily stagnant.
If you are ready to look into adult education programs, consider the dental assisting program at the Sunrise School of Dental Assisting. All of these benefits, and more, can be yours! Call us today to find out more about our upcoming programs.

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!
