Amy – Dental Assistant with Radiology Student
Before entering the door here at Advantage Career Institute for my meeting with Joe I was extremely nervous with what to say, what not say, how to sit, when to speak, all sorts of nervous feelings. But the second I walked in and everyone passing through the school was relaxed, comfortable and extremely friendly it was an instant flip into a relaxed state of mind. It was a significant amount of relief to see that just as much as I was making my first impression on them, they were just as much making their first impression on me. As soon as I left my meeting with Joe I knew that I was going to be signing on the dotted line and making it my choice of school. No other school that I looked into or visited with gave me the confidence in really furthering my education in the Dental Assisting with Radiology field.
I give everyone on staff here the biggest high five for remembering all our names. It was impressive to come in on second day of school and be greeted by name. I don’t know how they do it but they remembered our names like it was nothing which made me feel that my choice to enroll here was the BEST choice. It was a good feeling to know that I wasn’t just another student to come and go but another student to teach and mentor for a brighter future.
My biggest thanks must to go to Miss Alvarez for being such an amazing teacher. She has a distinctive method of teaching, or as I like to think drilling us with information, that no matter how much you read, study or how many index cards you possibly think of making it is no comparison to her lectures. The way that Miss Alvarez explains things and demonstrates them was awesome because everything was retained and understood. “Are we good? Lets keep it moving” will be a phase that will never get old to hear because it was the end of one chapter and the start of another exciting one. I actually looked forward to exam day because I knew that if Miss A. taught it, I knew it!
I am so appreciative of the effort that the ACI team puts into every student here. It’s a good feeling to know that every time someone asks where I go to school I am proud to say ACI. As well as rambling a million reasons why they should come check it out and see all the endless ways that Advantage Career Institute helps to help you start a new career.

I’ve never been happier to say the words “I graduated”. And this is something you too could have the experience in doing if you come to Advantage. I will forever be thankful and grateful to Ms. Alvarez, along with the entire school staff for the their time and effort to educate and prepare us for a new beginning.
I came to Advantage just as nervous and eager as all my other classmates, not knowing what was in store. Now that my classmates and I are finishing up we are looking forward to our internships and hopefully, a position in a dental office soon after. I had fun in my class and made new friends. It was a lot of work with lots of studying to put in but we all helped each other because we wanted everyone to succeed. I hope I can one day see my classmates again and talk about all of the great things in our careers.
ACI gave me all the tools and showed me how to use them, but it was up to me to take them and use them. Before coming to Advantage I was delivering medical equipment and making a decent pay, but I really wasn’t going anywhere and my job wasn’t secure. Now I have an education that can never be taken away and a career I can further on.My family is proud of me for what I’ve accomplished. I’m proud of myself and can’t wait to tell my little boy about how his daddy decided to make one of the best decisions of his life and come to ACI and come out a success. Thank you Ms. Alvarez and thank you ACI!
