Great School

I really appreciated my experience here at the Greatwood Dental Assisting Program. You get to learn hands-on how to do it all. They are willing to work with busy schedules and it's only 10 Saturdays. I care for the staff here and really enjoyed my time with them. They are a great team and very willing to show you how it's done right! I'm going to miss coming here but happy to be finished.
