Is education just what the doctor ordered? That seems to be the case for Dr. Tim Gardner, D.D.S. of Montgomery County Dental Assisting School (MCDAS).
Dr. Gardner opened MCDAS in 2013 after becoming frustrated with technical schools offering dental assisting programs. He learned that students were paying about $6,000 for tuition and upon completion of the program had little to no clinical skills or experience.
MCDAS’s unique approach goes beyond book work, unlike the technical schools, and dives into clinical participation in an operating dental practice. This one-of-a-kind learning experience equips students with valuable skills and information they need to make an immediate difference in the dental field.
For the first time, the program is offering two full scholarships. Those who are interested are asked to write a short essay detailing what interests them about dentistry and why they would be a good fit in a dental practice. Submissions will be accepted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org until Friday, January 18, 2019.
Montgomery County Dental Assisting School’s mission is to properly train and educate students in the art of dental assisting. Students can expect to receive personalized teaching in a small class setting, hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment and understanding of dental terminology. With the added flexibility of classes held on Saturdays for just 10 weeks, many have the opportunity to continue working while training for a new career.
