What Real Students Say
"The EITC Dental Assisting program was more than I expected. he state-of-the-art dental clinical lab and equipment is newer than most offices in the area. I have learned a lot with the variety of learning experiences. It is great when dentists are impressed with how much we know."
"I really enjoy how ‘hands-on' the EITC Dental Assisting Program is. It makes it so much easier to learn and understand the concepts, skills and procedures. We get to experience many things that happen in a real dental office and it's made me want to work in the dental field even more."
