Jessica learned about STI through her cousin who graduated from the Dental Assisting program in 2013 and highly recommended it to her. As a young mother Jessica had to put her education on hold until the timing was right and her son started school. She did her research and looked at other schools but “was sold” when she realized that STI’s tuition was very affordable, the school is fully accredited, and the Expanded Functions certification isn’t offered anywhere else.
Jessica’s fiance and children were what motivated her to go back to school knowing a new career would provide many opportunities for her family. When asked what she likes most about STI she said the community environment where everyone is incredibly supportive of each other. Over the next few years Jessica sees herself as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant or Office Manager.
To those contemplating a new career her advice is “Go for it! You won’t find a better education, that leads to certification, anywhere else!”
