Dental Assisting

The faculty are extremely knowledgeable. They keep the motivation and excitement going. They are always there to help you navigate through the journey. I had many great experiences at STI . The chairside labs and workshops were a favorite.

I love Ms. Becker’s enthusiasm for teaching and that she wanted us to succeed from the beginning and never gave up. It left an impact on me and I respect her highly for that. I feel that Mrs. Beer’s knowledge of the content matter that we were learning helped me understand anatomy.

The hands-on aspect of it all was the best part of the Dental Assisting Program. The teachers were motivated and engaged, even during COVID. Mrs. Santos was always available to answer questions.

Medical Assisting

The best part of Medical Assisting was the faculty. I enjoyed the way that Mrs. Williams related her experiences in the healthcare field to the topic we were discussing in class. The class also helped me to pick out medications when going over a history in my externship..

I heard about the Dental Assisting Program through a few friends who also went to STI. They always had great things to say about the school and how much they enjoyed it so I signed up and it was the best decision I ever made. Everything was excellent. The class time was used wisely...

Southeastern Technical Institute has given me nothing but a great experience – I highly recommend this program. The teachers are very knowledgeable and always willing to help you better yourself. They want to see you succeed. If you are someone who is thinking about enrolling just do it; you won’t regret it! As long as you put in the work you will have a great outcome.
