From Our Graduates

“Great program! The teacher is great and helpful! I recommend this school to everyone seeking to become more knowledgeable and successful in the dental field.”

Michael A.

“Fantastic instruction, fun and kind staff! I just completed my Radiation Safety certification with the OP and from start to finish it was a joy. The instructor was quick to respond to every question, and even went above and beyond to help me secure the patients I needed to take x-rays of, for my final exam. Dr. Nazir is terrific, and provided great insights and coaching into my films. This is a newer dental school and I wish I had discovered it sooner. Whether you are just getting started, are picking up courses for California certification (like me), or are seeking recertification or renewal, start your search here! You won’t regret it.”

September V.

“This school has been the best part of my move to California! It it so well organized and the founders put so much love and effort into it! It’s well worth the money I paid. Everything I need was provided to me including uniforms supplies, books at no extra cost! Brenda, the instructor in this program has 30 years of experience in the field. She is one of the best humans walking on this planet and treated all the students like her own children. She empowered us not just taught us. Her lectures are very fun and detailed you learn so much just by going to school, when you read the homework chapters you already know it all. She is a great speaker. She provided us water coffee and snack which was so helpful for the evening school. She helped with job placement and gave a lot of helpful tips. I can’t say enough good about this place. I’m going to miss it. Can’t wait for the continuing education classes!”

Eve Levin

“It was by far the best decision in my life going here. It wasn’t hard to complete. I got my infection control, cal/OSHA, BLS, radiation safety and other certifications in 12 short weeks. I would highly recommend the class to anyone looking to become a dental assistant. You won’t regret it.”

Mikaila Coomes

“The Dental Op is an amazing program! I loved it and got certified in only 12 weeks! The teacher Brenda is an awesome teacher who does everything she can to help her students and make sure they succeed. I definitely recommend this program!”
