Front Door
Picture #1:  This is the front door to our office.  We're the door on the right with the teeth on it.  Please feel free to let yourself in.

Vestibule
Picture #2:  Once you enter the front door pictured above you'll enter a small vestibule.  Again, feel free to let yourself in.  There is a doorbell that will ring automatically as you enter (in case we're in the back).

Hallway
Picture #3:  After you enter through the second door (see picture #2 above), you'll see this hallway.  On your right just past the cabinets are some hangars if you'd like to hang up a coat or jacket.  Along the left wall (and elsewhere in the office) you'll see a number of photographs taken by our office manager Emil Villanueva.

Entering Classroom
Picture #4:  This is where the office opens up.  There are two main parts of the office.  Here in the front is the classroom, which you can begin to see in this picture.  A fuller picture of the classroom is shown below.

Back of the Classroom
Picture #5:  This is a view of our classroom from the back.  As you can see there are only four tables.  We purposely keep our classes small.  This will provide you with a more personal touch.  Our staff will get to know you as a person and never simply as a number.  With small class sizes you'll also have the opportunity to get to know us better and have more time to ask questions.

Front of the Classroom
Picture #6:  This is a view from the front of our classroom.   Again a small class size allows more time for discussions and questions.  Our largest class is capped at a maximum of 16 students, while our Introductory Dental Assisting course is capped at a maximum of only 3 students!

Cleaning Station
Picture #7:  This is our sterilization station located in the back of the office behind the classroom.  An essential part of being a good dental assistant includes knowledge of infection control procedures.  The sterilization station helps students to develop a sense of familiarity with the equipment and materials you'll find in an actual dental office.

Autoclave
Picture #8:  Part of the sterilization station is our autoclave unit, which is an important (though not the only) means of sterilizing dental materials and instruments.  The tubs and trays above the counter include the materials needed to perform a majority of dental assisting procedures.

Sink
Picture #9:  In the lab area, students learn how to mix impression materials and make stone reproductions of teeth.

Return to Thumbnails


Back Office
Picture #10:  Also in the back office, behind the classroom, are a few computer stations where both staff and students work.  Students can take practice exams on these computers that are designed to help prepare you for both the content and feel of taking one of the actual exams you'll need to pass in order to obtain your dental x-ray license, CDA  [DANB Disclaimer]certificate, and/or RDA license.  In the middle of this picture is the entrance to the staff office where you can frequently find our office manager Emil Villanueva.

Fletchette
Picture #11:  This is Fletchette.  She is a mannequin that our students use to practice taking actual (live) radiographs (x-rays) and performing other dental assisting procedures.  Using this setup, you'll have the opportunity to develop a sense of comfort and familiarity with the equipment and procedures that you'll be expected to use in an actual dental office.

Return to Thumbnails


Hand Machine
Picture #12:  In the Dental Radiology course, students will process (develop) the actual radiographs that they take on Fletchette (our mannequin) using the automatic film processor shown here.
