The History of DAS

Dental Assistant Services was established over 30 years ago.  It began as a tutoring service running from inside the home of Gail Scarola-Villanueva, who began her own career as a dental assistant.  As word grew so did the business.  Soon her one-on-one sessions grew into classes as the cars from an increasing number of students began to fill up her driveway.  One of Gail's fondest memories of those days were her two young boys who would stop in wearing their pajamas to say good night to their mother and receive a collective sigh from the class.

Welcome to Farmingdale, NJIn time Gail realized that she needed more space and rented a shared office on Main Street in Farmingdale, New Jersey.  Through word of mouth and by offering a quality service with a personal touch, she quickly outgrew this office as well.  After only three years there she moved to the current location on Route 33 in Farmingdale.  With this new and larger space she was able to equip the office with more supplies, instruments, and teaching resources.  Fletcher and Fletchette (the mannequins) made their first appearance, along with amalgam trays, an autoclave, a radiograph machine, and other office equipment.

For the past three decades, Gail Scarola-Villanueva has built a name and a reputation for herself and for Dental Assistant Services that is unparalleled.  A modest and down-to-earth woman, she remains humble in spite of the honor and respect that professionals in the field and non-professionals alike have for her.  Gail has become known to be a great wealth of knowledge about all things dental assisting and remains committed to providing her students a quality education and the most recent and up-to-date information available, all while continuing and insisting on offering a personal touch. 

At Dental Assistant Services you are known by your name and are taught by demonstration and hands on practice.  Gail has often been acknowledged for her gift and ability to make the material "real", to make challenging material less difficult, and for her honesty.  You won't be taught needless "filler" information here.  Instead you'll learn the knowledge and the skills you need to know to begin a successful and rewarding career in dental assisting.

Since its humble beginnings, Dental Assistant Services has remained a family owned and run business.  But with growth has come a need to bring on additional personnel to assist and better serve the students, who have always been and will continue to be our number one priority.
