This program made me realize that dental assisting is for me. I love helping others and enjoy meeting new people. I have gained a lot of knowledge and learned how to improve my work ethic through this program. I feel more confident when talking to new people and more educated in ways I can help others, even if it is as simple as explaining the correct way to brush someone’s teeth!
Dental Assistant (soon to be RDA), Covina
Attending the Registered Dental Assistant program was one of the best decisions I've made. The program exceeded my expectations and put me in a place in my life where I can finally start my career. The RDA program at Citrus College, in my opinion, is the best RDA program around. The instructors are very knowledgeable, helpful, and really help motivate you to be the best dental assistant. I am now confident starting my career as a dental assistant because of the Citrus College RDA program.
The Citrus College RDA program did a great job of preparing me to join the dental workforce. It was extremely affordable compared to some other programs. The teaching staff here is genuinely invested in helping you succeed.

Janice Liu, B.S.
The Citrus College RDA program really prepared me for my dental practice experience. I always receive compliments on my work ethic in my office and I believe if it weren’t for this program I wouldn’t be excellent at what I do. Sometimes it was hard and the instructors were hard on me but now I am disciplined and meticulous. I have the program and instructors to thank for that.

The Citrus College RDA program will prepare you for not only the board exam but also how to work in the professional field. The education you receive is thorough but you also gain something more during this program. Along with the curriculum you learn patience, maturity, and the "soft skills" needed to be successful with any path you take in your life.
