“Could a Career as a Dental Assistant Be Right for You?”
My name is Dr. Aaron Nicholas and I love dentistry! I enjoy teaching and helping others as well. After many years of being a dentist, I have encountered numerous people who want to join me in the dental field. “Dentistry is such a wonderful profession and I am glad to pass along knowledge and the passion for caring for others”.
At times there has been a shortage of qualified assistants in my dental practice. I saw this need and opened the Dental Assistant School of Maryland, a 13-week dental assisting program with the State of Maryland. I put my passion and years of experience to work. Now, in addition to my private practice, I operate the school in our modern dental facilities, with the entire course completed in a short 13-weeks. “Compared to other schools, the Dental Assistant School of Maryland students not only finish in less than half the time, but pay a mere fraction of tuition fees”.
There is a shortage of qualified dental assistants according to the U.S. Labor Statistics Dept. This career is a great opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives and health.
