“Graduating from Seacoast Career Schools was one of the best things I have ever done."
“Graduating from Seacoast Career Schools was one of the best things I have ever done. I was a stay-at-home mom for 14 years. When my husband lost his job and was unable to get another one, I knew I needed to do something. I researched on the computer and looked in the paper to see what kind of jobs were still out there. I continually saw dental assisting jobs in the paper, and I read that dental assisting was listed as one of the careers in demand. I enrolled at Seacoast in Manchester, NH, not knowing that I had found a career that I was going to love.
“The program fit into my life well. Other dental assisting programs in the area took at least two years to complete, and required more prerequisites. I needed an accelerated program that I could do in a year. My husband had to go overseas to Iraq and Afghanistan to work in order to keep up with our mortgage and pay our bills. He was over there for a year and a half. I loved the classes and everything I was learning at Seacoast. I did well and maintained a 4.0 grade point average through the entire program.
“When I started at Seacoast, I had an idea that I wanted to specialize in orthodontics. My son had had braces and was treated by Mehan Orthodontics. I had researched this office and knew that was where I wanted to work when I graduated from the program. After I graduated, I went to Dr. Mehan’s office and asked him if I could shadow at his office. That was three months after I graduated, and after a short time, I was offered a job. I love what I do and I am glad that I went to Seacoast and did the Dental Assisting program. My husband is home now things are a lot better than they used to be.”
What Tina says about Seacoast: “I love what I do and I am glad that I went to Seacoast and did the Dental Assisting program.”
