I start classes on May 16th 2017. However they have already made me feel like a full blown student. Jim Farmer my admissions representative is one of the nicest, coolest peoole I yet to meet in life. I am a non-traditional student, being that I'm 37 and just received my high school diploma and have now decided to enroll in the Brightwood College- Vista Dental Assistant program. Having been a little nervous about this along this huge step in my life Jim Farmer immediately made me feel very comfortable and proud of my accomplishments.

All the teachers that I've met so far really seem to care for their students. They go out of their way to make sure your understanding the material. They offer a great place to study, and best of all they offer Career Placement services after graduation. That's huge this day in age when jobs are becoming harder and harder to acquire. So all in all I've had nothing but great experiences at Brightwood College-Vista.

I had a great experience at this school. I love how hands on it is and the instructors are amazing. They are dedicated and go the extra mile to help struggling students. I graduated from the Dental assisting program in April 2017 and was hired right out of my externship. It was one of the best decisions I could have ever made. Ms. Anna, Ms. Gale, Mr. Villa, and Ms. Elyce are some of the best instructors. Without their guidance, support, and of course teaching, I would have never made it through.
Great school with hands on in every program. I am currently in the X-Ray program and absolutely love it! Professors are willing to put in the extra mile for you if you are having a hard time.
