Why did you choose Dental Office Training By Lynn? I chose Dental Office Training By Lynn for multiple reasons; Number one being their confident ability to train the best of the best. Dental Office Training by Lynn offers a personalized, hands-on learning environment that allowed me to succeed in all aspects. Another reason I chose DOT is because their hours and total program time accommodated my work schedule and allowed me to get out in the field as soon as possible. I was able to go to school and work a part time job without having to sacrifice one or the other. Their accelerated program also allowed me to become a certified dental assistant in only three months... I think that was the best part. I was able to begin a rewarding, new career in no time. After researching all of my options for school, it only made sense to have training from professionals who have worked in the field. Lynn and Denise's experience and their desire for their students to succeed made my decision easy.

What made DOT unique for you? Dental Office Training was unique to me due to their "to-the-point" program. I learned what I NEEDED to know for my career. Their small class size also allowed me to really grasp everything I learned. I could ask questions and be shown procedures over again if I needed further explanation. I never felt overwhelmed or without guidance.
