What Students Say About our School...
"I would like to say thank you to Dr McDonald, his wife Sheila, and all of the amazing team at TADA. With how affordable, professional and knowledgeable this program is, I could not have been happier with my choice. I not only learned everything I needed to know to be successful as a dental assistant, but the TADA team also helped with my job search and gaining my confidence when it came to interviews. The TADA team was always positive, patient and there when I had questions, even after class hours. They truly want their students to succeed, and will do anything to make that happen.
After applying to a couple RDA positions, I got a call back for an interview. Sheila was very good with helping me prepare, and I am proud to say that I got the job.BEFORE I graduated! I love my job, and couldn't thank TADA enough for helping me make this change in my life. I would definitely recommend Texas Academy of Dental Assisting to anyone!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!"

"I have always wanted to be a dental assistant but between working fulltime and not being able to afford school I didn't think it would ever happen. Then I found TADA, just a few hours 2 nights a week was perfect for me. It was so affordable too! Honestly, now that I've completed the course, I miss it. You really get to know your instructors and they work with you personally to make sure everyone gets involved. You really get great hands on training with actual dental equipment so you really get to feel what it's like to work in a dentist office. TADA is an amazing school and I am glad I got to be a part of it, now I actually get to do what I've always dreamed."
