Dental Assisting School


Congratulations Mrs. Crashona Gardner

Enrolling in the dental assistant program at Dental Workz was one of the best decisions I have made. It has opened a door and started me on a journey in dentistry that I never would have been on without the help of Dr. Howard and his staff. The sky is the limit and enrolling in this program is the first step toward dentistry greatness. -- Crashona Gardner
Ms. Gardner completed our program in the summer of 2021 and received multiple job offerings. She eventually accepted a position as the assistant office manager at a dental office in Tallahassee, FL. Congratulations Ms. Gardner! We are proud of you and wish you well in all that a career in dentistry has to offer. --Dr. Howard
