Deciding to leave the job I envisioned myself doing for the rest of my life, was difficult. However, the transition into the Niagara College Dental Office Administration program, was extremely worthwhile. My studies at Niagara College opened the door to my current job, through field placement. It is a joy to go to work each day and be surrounded by passionate and hardworking dental professionals.
The Dental Office Administration program at Niagara College gives a wide variety and balance of office administration skills and dental knowledge needed to work efficiently in a dental practice. As a graduate of the Dental Office Administration program, I often reflect on my experience and the skills I developed in the Dental Office Administration program to benefit me in my current professional role at Niagara College in the Allied Health Department. I am extremely grateful for my experience at Niagara College.
I find that students from the program come to our office very well prepared to meet the challenges and demands of a busy office environment. The level of skill and professionalism demonstrated by each student quickly makes each of them a valuable member of our dental team. We miss them when their field placement is over.
Graduating from Dental Office Administration and being recently enrolled in Dental Hygiene has given me knowledge and understanding about two very important aspects of the dental team. Dental Office Administration has given me a great foundation of dental knowledge that has been invaluable for furthering my education in Dental Hygiene.
Enrolling in the Dental Office Administration program was without a doubt the best professional decision I’ve made. Not only did I expand my existing business skills, I Iearned valuable new skills that I use daily. Since graduating, I have received many job offers and I am currently employed at a periodontist’s office. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is interested in an education in the dental field.
I would recommend this program to students who are looking for a change and are serious about their future with a dental team.
