Dr. Ryan Schmidgall, Country Day Dental

I am a comprehensive and cosmetic dentist with a successful high end practice in Fort Worth, TX. I've had graduates of TADA on my team, and I know Dr. McDonald and Sheila well. Not only are they great educators, but they also are great people who care deeply about the success of their students in career and life. Many programs can put together a basic curriculum to train, but few care as much and are as intentional as TADA in creating a safe and enjoyable environment for students to learn and succeed. I've only had good experiences with graduates of Texas Academy of Dental Assisting and I highly recommend them for dental assistant training.

This school is an amazing 12-week experience! I enjoyed every moment of lecture, lab, the instructors, the hands-on activities and the over all layout of how they conduct things! I landed a new career as a dental assistant because of this school! I highly recommend this school for future dental assistants.

Desirae P., RDA in Keene, Texas

I landed a RDA job after graduation and I am VERY pleased with my choice of dental assisting school. Every single instructor at TADA is extremely kind, caring, knowledgeable, and helpful. The fact that it takes place in an actual dental office makes the experience exciting, and gives you a great idea of what to expect. I believe I have made the best decision attending TADA!
