Karen Paoli, EFFDA, Dr. Todd Rogers
Why are you taking the time to teach at the Assist to Succeed Dental Assisting School?
I believe in this career and I have seen a lot of students come out of school not knowing important basics.
What skills do you bring to the curriculum? What do you hope to pass along to your students?
I bring 37 years of experience and knowledge. I hope to pass on how to treat patients and what students will need in the real world of dentistry.
What makes Assist To Succeed a valuable program?
It cares about its students.
Why is Dental Assisting a good career choice?
It is financially and personally rewarding. It’s also a very stable career.
What does the job prospect look like for Dental Assistants?
The job prospect is good. And there is always room to grow in your career and salary
Can you please share some examples of “A typical day in the life of a Dental Assistant”?
Days start with a meeting about the day and patients’ needs. Organizing the patient needs and setting up and sterilizing equipment, checking on patient lab cases and supplies and most importantly listening and answering patient concerns.
Dr. Ken Gasper of Aesthetic Dentistry by Design has opened a new dental assisting school called Assist to Succeed Colorado Springs. It’s a new program that teaches dental assisting faster, and costs thousands less than any other program in Colorado Springs. It is a 10 weekend program that runs only on Saturdays. Upon completion of the course and an externship, students can receive a Dental Assisting Certificate to work as a dental assistant anywhere in Colorado. Dental assistant pay averages between $8/hr to over $20/hr. The semester starts September 8 and tuition for the program is only $3,995. www.assisttosucceed.com 719-599-0700
