This is the best hands-on dental assisting program in San Diego.  The low student to instructor ratio and amount of chairside experience guarantee confidence wherever your career may take you.  Thanks for giving me the chance to learn something in weeks that otherwise would have taken months.                                                               -Hope Hanford,  SDDC Graduate
