“Could a Career as a Dental Assistant Be Right for You?”
My name is Dr. Richard McDonald and I love dentistry! I enjoy teaching and helping others as well. After many years of being a dentist, I have encountered numerous people who want to join me in the dental field. “Dentistry is such a wonderful profession and I am glad to pass along knowledge and the passion for caring for others”.
At times there has been a shortage of qualified assistants in my dental practice. I saw this need and opened the Texas Academy of Dental Assisting, a 12 week dental assisting program with the State of Texas and put my passion and years of experience to work. Now in addition to my private practice, I operate the school in the evenings with classes two days each week, with the entire course completed in 12 weeks. “Compared to other schools, Texas Academy of Dental Assisting students not only finish in less than half the time, but pay a mere fraction of tuition fees”.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics there is a shortage of qualified dental assistants. You can make a difference in people’s health and lives.
