“I would highly recommend any Dental Assistant to take the EDDA course. I have gained so much knowledge and feel very comfortable going back to my clinic and utilizing the skills I learned. Helen and Lindsey are both amazing teachers. They both pushed us to do our best. I am so glad that I was able to attend this course.”
