Experience Is a Great Teacher
The founders of Howard Healthcare Academy, Dr. Kami Hoss and Dr. Nazli Keri, are also dental specialists and owners of The Super Dentists. Voted the number one pediatric dentistry, orthodontic and parent dentistry offices in San Diego, The Super Dentists have hired a number of dental assistants to work in their five dentist offices over the years. As dental specialists (Kami Hoss is an orthodontists and Nazli Keri a pediatric dentist), both expect new hires to bring a level of ability to their practices. Dismayed by the lack of training in some new-hires, The Super Dentists decided to start a dental assisting school that would give students a thorough knowledge as well as experience using current dental equipment. This is why Howard Healthcare Academy exists today. The goal for Howard Healthcare Academy is to have their graduates sufficiently trained to walk into a dental office and be able to feel confident and have the dental knowledge and skills necessary to be an immediate asset to their new employers’ dental practice. Dr. Kami Hoss and Dr. Nazli Keri hope that other dentists will notice the abilities of students who graduate from Howard Healthcare Academy.

Working professionals are your teachers
Faculty members at Howard Healthcare Academy want students to understand all aspects of what is required of a dental assistant. From technical skills to personal attributes, your instructors will teach you how to put patients at ease and how to technically perform your dental assistant responsibilities. Because Howard Healthcare Academy instructors have also worked in the dental field, they are able to give students valuable real-life skills and not simply textbook reports. Our instructors have personally performed the job duties that you will be expected to do. Being taught by someone with dental assistant experience allows you to get an inside view and answers to your questions about day-to-day life in a dental office. Our working dentists will also give you insight into their experiences and expectations running a dental practice. The goal of your instructors is to ensure you are ready to be a well-rounded dental assistant.
