Customer Testimonials

I'm beyond blessed to work in such an honest and nurturing environment. With 26 years of dental assisting experience, I couldn't ask for a better place to share the great world of dentistry with future dental professionals. The training received at this institute is everything you need to get a good job and have a long, rewarding career in this field. You will not regret it.


I loved how we got to practice with each other and work on real people. I also loved how everyone pretty much became family! I'm so thankful for this school and the teachers who taught me to work hard/keep practicing. It's not always easy being in this kind of field, but it sure is worth seeing the faces of those who feel much better after treatment!


If I could give this school a 500 out of 5, I would. I absolutely LOVED everything about AIDA. From my instructors, all the way to the dentist that you work with during clinics. You always feel so welcomed even after you finish your course! Holly and Lynn are so helpful when it comes to feeling confused or lost about what's going on! I love AIDA, if I could go back, I would in a heartbeat!


This is by far the best school I have attended. Every teacher and staff member is so helpful no matter what the situation or question might be. They treat everyone so fairly with one-on-one attention. Lessons are hands on which is awesome because I find it being a better learning experience. I just over all love the efforts from everyone here such a lively great environment! This is definitely the greatest learning experience I've had and I'm super happy with my choice in choosing this school. Thanks to all the AIDA staff!
