It is our belief that thorough instruction, and planned tasks involving more hands-on experiences, we can give our students the edge going forward. Thomas Gentry, a Preventive Dentistry Specialist and Graduate of the Academy of Health and Sciences, and Elise Barry C.D.A. & Leah Bradway R.D.H., C.D.A., both Certified Dental Assistants, have more than 30 years of experience in the industry. They give our students the instructions they need – all with the right backgrounds necessary - to learn and absorb the highest level of dental education.
