WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING!

Ronda Miller, the Founder and President of Academy for Dental Assistants reflect emotionally, “As part of the military family and married to a military member that was deployed for 10 months and understand the toll the military deployments can have on a family. I am grateful for the sacrifice of all our military members and wanted to do something to show our appreciation.”

“As the Director for Academy of Dental Assistants and a previous dental assistant and part of the United States Military family,” Ronda elaborates on the difference she is committed to making, “I know first hand what a fulfilling career dental assisting can be. You can remain a dental assistant or utilize this career as a chance to gain experience in the dental field and utilize that experience to move on to dental hygiene or dental school.  This is the opportunity of a lifetime, and I am determined to make a profound difference for the families that give so much for our country!”
