This School Has Been Amazing
March 8, 2019 by Kit Lavender
I recently graduated from WCCODA! Woo! This school has been amazing and Becky is one of the best teachers I have ever had! Becky is always encouraging and wants us to be as prepared as we can when we enter the workforce in our new position as a dental assistant. I love that the classes are small in size (ours had 9 students) which allowed us to have exceptional one-on-one time with the teacher. There is a lot of hands on experience ranging in x-rays, taking impressions, trimming models, making retainers & bleach trays, coronal polishing, sealants, making temporary crowns and bridges, etc! WCCCODA and Becky have exceeded my expectations of anything I could have imagined. It took me about 10 years out of high school to finally make the leap into the dental world as I’ve always wanted and I am SO thankful that I found this school and signed up. I highly recommend checking into this school if you are interested in becoming a knowledgeable dental assistant, you will not regret it!!
I’ve Been Raving to Everyone I Know
February 27, 2019 by Lacy Hull
I’ve been raving to everyone I know about West Coast College of Dental Assisting! My time here was absolutely life changing. The curriculum was thorough and immersive and Becky made everything easy to comprehend. She always took the time to make sure we felt confidence in our knowledge in every aspect of dental assisting and I was always welcome to ask as many questions as needed. Due to the small class size I felt I was getting plenty of one-on-one time with Becky when needed, with the added bonus of becoming very close friends with my classmates. Being only two days a week, with three different class schedules available, it was easy to find something that worked with my full time work schedule, and I never felt overwhelmed with too much homework or studying. My time and money were greatly well spent at WCCODA and I’m looking forward to an amazing, fulfilling career as a certified Dental assistant. Thank you!!!
I'm Finally Making My Career Dreams Come True
February 25, 2019 by Cydne Liger
If you're ready to start an amazing career as a Dental Assistant, I highly recommend attending West Coast College of Dental Assisting! Classes are affordable and accommodating for you're life schedule, offering morning or evening classes, even Saturdays if you need! Becky is an absolutely wonderful instructor, who is nothing short of amazing. From X-Rays, Packing Cord, Charting, Custom Trays, Alginate Impressions and Bleach Trays to Sterilization, Tray Set-Ups, Four-Handed Dentistry, Oral Hygiene Instruction, and HIPAA/OSHA - Becky teaches everything you need to know, hands on. She even teaches the BLS certification so you don't have to pay extra to do it outside of school on your own time. Each class has no more than 10 students so you're really getting the 1:1 attention you wouldn't receive from other schools. The school is always receiving emails and calls from Dentists looking for students to train and begin work, which you can do while you're still attending school! Thanks to Becky and her ability to teach so well, I had 5 interviews and was able to choose which office I wanted to work in because they all wanted to hire me! I'm finally making my career dreams come true and you should too! Enroll today, you will not be disappointed!
I Loved Going to School Here
February 15, 2019 by Myah McNeal
I loved going to school here and will miss it dearly! Becky is a very kind, knowledgeable, and professional teacher. At WCCODA you will be given all the same equipment and materials to work and learn with as you would have in a real dental office. Becky is honest and will always give you the necessary feedback to improve. I recommend WCCODA over LW Tech and Pima medical institute because it is the only course in Washington where you can get all hands on learning and graduate in just 4.5 months. Becky is a great person to go to for advice, she always wants what’s best for all of her students.❤️
I Thought That 4.5 Months Was Too Good To Be True
August 1, 2018 by Rey Sibay
I'm so glad I found this school. At first, I thought that 4.5 months was too good to be true to finish a dental assisting program, but Becky has blown me away with how much she's taught me. She's very helpful and wants all her students to succeed!
So Glad I Chose This School!
July 31, 2018 by Erin Mcallister
So glad I chose this school!
For starters coming from being a bartender for years I knew it was time to make a change. Dental assisting was never even a thought that crossed my mind but then I did some research and West Coast Collage of dental popped up! With great reviews and quick responses. I set up a tour just to check it out.
The second I met Becky in person I just loved her personality and was able to see the passion for teaching Dental Assisting radiate from her while talking about her program. I knew it. It was meant to be. I signed up for the classes 6 months in advance!
Becky set this school up for people like me that learn hands on, not just from books. As I anticipated for months for school to start it finally did. Day 1 we were in the back room DOING things, not just reading a book! I was shocked and so excited! Now that’s what I’m talking about! Becky even has an app that students can download and study all the test on! It seriously saved my life! Laying in bed, at work, doing cardio... I was able to study at any moment. No other school has ever offered that.
As time has gone by school is now almost completed and i just started to apply for jobs, I have already had multiple call backs and interviews. My peers also have already been working in a dental Office for weeks even before graduation!
Over all, if your a hands on learner, looking for an amazing teacher that CARES about your education and want to get into dental I would highly suggest West Coast Collage of Dental. You won’t be disappointed.
An Easy To Follow Curriculum
July 15, 2018 by Erin Joy
From the first time you meet with Becky she is kind, encouraging, and full of enthusiasm for her field. She provides an easy to follow curriculum that prepares you for any number of dental specialties. She gets excited with you for your victories and helps you to see not just the how of each procedure and task, but the why as well.
I Loved this School!
March 23, 2018 by Alison Simons
Becky is AMAZING! I learned SO much from her school. The amount of hands-on and one-on-one teaching is incomparable. Becky takes her time teaching each student and really making sure each of us understands the processes. I loved this school!! I learned so much. She continually posts job opportunities for us and encourages us to apply. I graduated with two dental assisting jobs. Couldn’t have done it without Becky’s amazing support and guidance!
You Jump Right In!
March 5, 2018 by Marianna Frasier
If I could rate more than 5 stars I would! This school is amazing! You jump right in and get your hands on all instruments! Mrs Becky is phenomenal! Probably one of the best teachers I have ever had. She cares so much for everyone to succeed and will push you to do great!
Highly Recommend this course!!!
Thank you for everything Mrs. Becky, I wouldn’t be where I am today without you!

Easily Found a Job with My Credentials!
February 27, 2018 by Brianna Wilson
Successfully completed school in 4.5 months, and was easily able to find a job with the credentials I received at West Coast College of Dental Assisting.
This Was the Best Decision I Ever Made!
February 25, 2018 by Katie Bowden
If you're like me and you feel uncomfortable on a big college campus, this is the right school for you. I didn't know what I wanted to do after high school, but after going to this school, I can definitely say that it was the best decision I ever made. The teacher is wonderful, you get to know your peers very well, the class is small, the course is very hands on, and you are guaranteed to learn so much from Mrs. Becky's teachings. When you are finished, you feel confident with the amount of knowledge you have learned and feel ready to apply your skills in a workplace.
I Absolutely Recommend this School!
February 24, 2018 by Hanna Teal
I absolutely recommend this school to anyone interested in Dental Assisting. Becky, the teacher is amazing. She makes learning very easy and laid back. This program offers so much hands on learning. She posts many job opportunities while in the class to help you find a job.
Awesome School and Even Better Teacher!
February 24, 2018 by Cassie Dodson
Amazing school! I would recommend this school to anyone who is a hands on learner. Becky teaches you everything you need to know about working in the Dental field! You'll learn every part of the Dental office, and you'll learn different ways to do them. With the small class sizes, you get one on one with the teacher every day. Whether you're interested in working at a General, Orthodontic, Endodontic or Pediatric Office, you will learn it all! Awesome school and even better teacher
From Day One I Felt So Welcomed!
February 24, 2018 by Tanya Nikitova
Starting this school I knew absolutely nothing about dentistry. But from Day 1 I felt so welcomed! Mrs.Becky really took care of each students success!!! Graduating in a week and I feel comfortable with the all the things learned! And not only learned but there is SO much hands on. There are operatories, instruments, literally everything you would have in a regular dental office. So it's the best way to learn! Honestly would recommend this school to anyone who is interested in becoming a dental assistant.
This is the School!
February 24, 2018 by Maddie Hansford
If you’re looking to be a dental assistant this is the school to go too! Mrs. Becky is amazing and so personable. She really makes school worth while and is so intelligent about dentistry. She’s seen everything and has so many awesome stories! It’s fast paced and if you want to get your degree in less than 6 months this is the perfect fit. You have options to pick the schedule that works for you and it was perfect because I could still work full time and go to school. Got a job in Orthodontics before school was over and majority of my classmates have also gotten jobs while still in school. I’m sad to be leaving but couldn’t feel better about going into the dental field because of how much I learned ️ Thank you Becky!
August 22, 2017 by Mikaela Pedersen
Becky is such a great instructor! She is very knowledgable and makes class fun. I am so glad I found this school, I even drove all the way from Bonney, Lake to come here! I learned a lot and it is a class I won't forget. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to go into the dental field! :)
This School is Awesome!
July 12, 2017 by Roseann Tartios
This school is awesome and so is the instructor. Becky is very nice and patient. I'm grateful I chose this school.
This Class is Excellent!
March 10, 2017 by Alanna Lachowsky
What makes this class excellent is definitely the instructor Becky! She is extremely knowledgeable and skilled in teaching the class everything we need to know to be a successful dental assistant. She makes the class incredibly fun and an easy learning environment for all the students.
I am so happy I chose to come to her school! You will be too!
WCCODA is a Great School!
March 18, 2017 by Julie Pineda
WCCODA is a great school to go to for sure! Starting to get in to the dental field with such an awesome instructor makes everything 10x better. Becky is awesome she teaches everything you need to know. She has a great personality and she makes sure everyone understands everything. She makes class so much fun never a dull moment. I really recommend this school for anyone out there wanting to become a dental assistant. The school is great and so is Becky. “I love her 💗”
I Felt Comfortable Starting My New Career
March 25, 2017 by Geena Mitts
I got a job within the last couple weeks of class because I learned so much and felt comfortable starting my new career so soon! I definitely recommend West Coast College of Dental Assisting if you want to start a new career path!
Definitely a Top Notch School!
September 2, 2016 by Julia Armstrong
Fantastic opportunities at this school! I signed up for 2016 summer course and have been able to enjoy 4 months of hands on training and an extremely knowledgeable instructor, the lovable Becky. This school provided a flexible payment plan for me and was well worth every penny. Becky has a wonderful reputation with her peers in the dental industry and always has local job listings. Our class visited a dental lab, orthodontic office and even had a Dentist / Doctor visit our school and practice a real procedure with me. I was able to experience what a real world dental office would feel like before my first interview, making me more confident and educated about entering the field. Definitely a top notch school!
I Couldn't be Happier and Confident
September 3, 2016 by Kristina Lokhmatov
I couldn't be happier with choosing this school for college! Helped me so much and gave me so much experience. I'm very excited to get out there and start working as a dental assistant because I am confident I will be great. Thanks to my awesome teacher :)
I Recommend this School to Everyone!
September 5, 2016 by Hailey Lindsay
First off after I finished my 2 year degree at Skagit Valley College, I never wanted to go back to school again. 2 years later I found this school online, called Becky up to tour the school. From the very first moment I walked into the school I felt at ease. Becky is such an amazing teacher, and that is an understatement! I can't believe how she makes school so exciting! I recommend this school to everyone!
Better Price! Fast Program!
September 8, 2016 by Samantha Frederick
I absolutely love this school. Not only does this school offer a much better price than all the others, it also has a very hands on, structured fast program! The teacher Becky is Awesome! She's been doing Dental Assisting for years and is so helpful!
April 26, 2016 by Jessica Olson
I give WCCODA a five star rating! I signed up for this class because it was shorter and more affordable than any other dental assisting program that I looked into. Becky was an amazing instructor who is passionate about the subject herself and it shows through her every class and every time she teaches a new procedure. Even though the length of the schooling is so short, she makes it work with all the information that is given to; she makes it work and it feels almost effortless! I couldn't be happier with my decision to chose to become a certified dental assistant through West Coast College of Dental Assisting with the help of the most amazing and flexible teacher Becky!
A Great School!
April 13, 2016 by Kathleen Maxwell
This is a great school for starting your journey to becoming a dental assistant. It is very hands on with you working in each others mouths from day one, gives you a real feeling of what it is like to work in an actual office and Becky, the instructor, makes learning as easy and fun as possible. She is straight forward, pushes you when needed and is always supportive and positive. I'm very happy I chose to go to school here and you will be too!
So Organized, Structured and Fun to Learn!
April 12, 2016 Hannah Dickinson
I am so glad that I chose to go to this school. Becky is seriously the greatest instructor. She is so organized, structured and so fun to learn from. She is always willing to put in the time and effort to help each person understand each concept, and never tries to trick you in any circumstance. She also over kills (covering everything extensively) so that when you go out into the field you are above and beyond the requirements for the positions. So much of the school is hands on learning and minimal book work, which is how you learn best in this field. I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone looking for a dental assisting school. You will be SOO glad you chose to go here!
Wonderful School! 10 Students Max! Very Hands On!
April 12, 2016 Ashley Leeburg
I love how this school is VERY hands on, you start taking X-rays the first day and coronal polish the 3rd day! I also really like how it's a small class size of 10 students max, so it's very easy to learn and it's very one on one. This school is like you're working in an actual dental office, we get to work on each other and get to invite friends and family to work on as well. So you get the experience of how to work in a real mouth and not just the fake dummy mouths. Becky, the instructor is awesome! Very easy going, doesn't beat around the bush and will tell you if you're doing something wrong and will be quick to help you fix it. She teaches you absolutely everything you need to know plus more. I could go on about this wonderful school. All I have to say is, there's no better place to start your path in the dental field than WCCODA.
Apr 17, 2015 by Jocelyn Flynn
This school is super hands on and really fun to learn! It's really fun to practice on your class mates and bring friends into school to practice. Becky is a super helpful instructor and makes sure you actually understand what you're doing. This school will prepare you for a job and it's really worth it to go!!!
Excellent Place to Study!!
Dec 15, 2014 by Cathie Chavarry
I am 2 days away from graduating and am so happy that I chose WCCODA to get my education!! With small class sizes it is easy for Becky to work with each student to ensure their success. The bonds that you make with your classmates are priceless! This school makes the most sense for anyone who wants a career without spending years taking classes that have nothing to do with your goals. Becky is very friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. From the very first day she made me believe that I can be a great dental assistant. That is a nice feeling when you are stepping out of your comfort zone. I would Highly recommend getting your education here.
Great School, Even Better Teacher!
Dec 15, 2014 by Lacey England
After being out of school 10 years I was very nervous to go back. Becky has made this experience better than I could have ever imagined! Smaller classes allow for a lot of hands on and one-on-one time! Our class has learned so much and I am so ready to get out there and apply it all. Thank you Becky!!!!
Aug 06, 2014 by Shayna Wilson
I went into this program after high school and after spending a few years in community college trying to figure out what I wanted to do. I found WCCODA online and what first attracted me was the shorter length of time than Pima or Lake WA. Becky is AMAZING and so committed to her students and was so encouraging and helpful through the program. The flow was really nice and the timing of units were perfect because I felt comfortable with each unit at the end before we moved on. She was very accommodating and really made it so that everyone understood what was going on. She has also been helpful after school! I took time off of graduating school and looking for a job to have a baby and I thought I would never be able to find a job after taking that time off but I did!!! She gave me a few references to offices hiring and offered to let me come in after school to freshen up. She cares about her students through and through and I highly recommend this school!!!
June 28, 2014 by Luz Den
Jamas me imagine tener la oportunidad de estudiar y a la vez tener pasar buenos momentos aprendiendo, Vecky es la profesora, mas especial y talentosa que he tenido por anios ademas, de preocuparse por sus alumnos sin exepsion . Muy feliz de haber estudiado en este College!!!!
Jun 16, 2014 by Eric Dy
A great school for anyone interested in pursuing dental assisting as a career. Becky has always gone above and beyond in making sure everyone understands the material. She teaches in different ways for better understanding on the material, which has been a big help for me. The energy level in the class she brings has always been fun and productive. Since the class is small one on one time occurs another great thing this school has to offer. Thank you Becky!
June 12, 2014 by Kacey Engle
I have had the greatest experience in this school. I learned everything that I needed to know to get the job done, even stuff that the doctors use to use back in the day. Becky is great, one of the best teachers I have ever had. She is always there with answers for any question you might have. The class is fun and full of great people. I highly recommend this school to anybody that wants to have dental assisting career.
June 12, 2014 by Abbey Marshall
This school is fun, easy, and very interactive. Becky is a great instructor and will answer any question you can think of. The classes are small so you have a ton of one on one time with her. I have become very confident in my dental assisting skills and have no fear in finding a job! I looked very hard in finding the correct school for me and I am lucky I found this one and I suggest everyone else who wants to become an amazing dental assistant to do the same!
January 24, 2014 by Bryan Knott
The instructor at West Coast is incredibly passionate about what she does for a living. She truly awakens that passions for dental assisting in every student in her class. After carefully looking at a few other dental assisting schools, I know I made the right choice picking this one. You know your class is amazing when graduation day is so bittersweet. Pick West Coast, you will not regret it.
August 28, 2013 by Kailey Borden
By far this has been the best experience I have had at a school. Becky is wonderful! She teaches in a way that is understandable and you really pick up everything quick. We were learning how to take x-rays on the first day, scary but I actually learned how to do it :). The hands on approach that Becky uses is the best way to teach Dental Assisting and I highly recommend to anyone that is interested in the Dental Assisting program to look no further, you will not be disappointed, this is the best school! Becky gives you one on one attention (the classes are small up to 10 girls in each), she's patient and really wants everyone to succeed and strives for each of her students to become the best that they can be :) Becky is the best teacher I have ever had and I am soooooo glad I decided to do the Dental Assisting program here. She gave me the confidence to be a great Dental Assistant :)
August 22, 2013 by Jenny Weller
"I highly recommend West Coast College of Dental Assisting to anyone who is interested in the dental field. Becky is amazing, and teaches from personal experience. She ALWAYS has a positive attitude and will do whatever it takes to help you in any way possible. She has created such a fun and stress free learning environment, I actually looked forward to going to school. The classes are small so you really get that one on one time with a ton of hands on experience. The best part is that you learn so much in a small amount of time. I got a job before school was out."
August 15, 2013 by Shelby Doughtery
Words cant describe the experience I had at this school and with Becky. Becky was made to be an instructor! I was so excited to start the program and finish but at the end was sad to leave. I learned so much and feel so comfortable I'm ready to work and feel extremely confident. Becky does an AMAZING job getting you ready for the actual dental offices. The hands on approach she had with our class was great! I would recommend this school to everyone and wouldn't go anywhere else. Becky is great and the Dental Assisting program she offers is just at great. Thank you Becky for being the best instructor and really taking your time with each and everyone of us :) so glad I came to your school!!!
March 20, 2013 by Annie Derra
This has been, by far, the best educational experience I've ever had. It's super hands on and teaches you how to operate in an actual dental office. There is minimal book work and lecture time. And even when there are lectures, they point out exactly the information you need to know for the upcoming tests. Becky, the instructor is amazing at what she does. She teaches from personal experience from working in the dental field. The classes are small so you get a lot of one-on-one time with her and she will walk you through all the steps. You learn everything from simple polishes to surgical procedures. I would highly recommend this school. It's been a great experience!
March 20, 2013 by Kristina
I am just finishing up my course here at West Coast College of Dental Assisting and have enjoyed every minute of it! Becky is an amazing instructor that teaches you exactly how it is in the Dental Assisting field! It's certainly a fast paced and intense course of study, so determination and hard work is definitely needed. But Becky is such a devoted and caring teacher that she is willing to work with you, one on one on the things you're having difficulty understanding. You can't get that kind of one on one instruction anywhere else!
March 09, 2013 by Monica Colon
This is the most awesome, amazing, and fun learning school I have ever been too. The instructor Becky is such a wonderful and helpful person I have ever met. She wants everyone to love the learning process and makes school fun again! This is a very hands on class. Day one I learned to take X-Rays! I also landed a job before I was out of school! I felt so confident in applying because I was taught, which is so important. A lot of schools out there don't teach hands on. I am very happy and pleased with my course. My sister and friend are actually attending the next class! If you want to learn, and do hands on this school is the place to go. Awesome teaching, awesome teacher/owner, and awesome people to learn with. And you will not have a problem FINDING A JOB! : )
March 09, 2013 by Kayla Calobeer
I cannot believe how much i have learned in the short time I have been here. The first day I came home so excited from class and had to tell my whole family what I had done. I learned to take x-rays on my VERY FIRST DAY! It was awesome. Miss Becky is such a great teacher. She always has a helping and positive attitude. She is patient and makes sure all of her students understand what is going on and she has assisting experience so she knows what she is talking about. I would 100% recommend her to anyone that is interested in becoming a dental assistant. And there is so much time in the dental lab. It is not all book work and that's what I really loved. Thank you to Miss Becky for all of the knowledge and experience you have given me!!!!
Amazing Place to Learn
September 15, 2012 by Danielle Picek
I don't even know where to start. Everything has been so wonderful at this school. When searching for schools, I was overwhelmed with where to go, how to go about it, etc. When I first called and scheduled an appointment to view the school, I was really shocked with how hassle and stress free everything was. Once I actually got to the school and met Miss Becky, I knew that I would not be going anywhere else. There isn't a program out there that is going to better prepare you for work in the dental field. Along with her years and years of experience, Miss Becky truly has a passion for teaching. I had no idea that I could learn so much in such a short amount of time. I can honestly say that I am completely confident and ready to join a dental team!
Best School for Dental Assisting
September 15, 2012 by Ashley Jensen
I looked at a lot of different schools for dental assisting but none of them compared to West Coast College. Mrs Becky puts you at ease and gives you the confidence that you need to make it through. I am a mom of a toddler and know life gets in the way sometimes but Mrs. Becky helps you achieve your goals. You are able to learn a lot in such a short amount of time and leave the school with confidence and all the knowledge you need to find that perfect job. If I can do it, anyone can. I'm so grateful for Mrs. Becky and for the school she put together. Now I can go out there in the world and provide for my daughter and I. Thank you Mrs. Becky!!!!!
August 22, 2012 by Megan Bush
This was the second school I visited in looking for a dental assisting program. Becky won me over with her easy to talk with personality. Right away when I started I was very apprehensive about actually doing all these procedures but Becky assured me she would get me through it. She is an amazing teacher who actually takes the time to listen to you and explain things through in a way that you can comprehend vs just taking it as the book explains. She made me comfortable with what I was doing and gave me confidence in myself. I highly suggest if you are looking to get into the Dental field that you come here and see what a wonderful teacher and space she has fostered. I know I made the right choice for my future!
July 21, 2012 by Jodi Nebel
Becky is great. She is very patient and really knows how to translate her vast experience in the field into teaching. Her classes are very organized and structured with many outlets of information and guidance. Each lesson is built upon each other and are fun and exciting with a lot of hands on experience. She caters to all learning styles and anyone who attends the school will possess all the tools needed to succeed in the field of dental assisting.
Highly Recommend Learning Dental Assisting from West Coast College
August 17, 2011 by Lindsay B.
Becky is a wonderful and positive Instructor who cares about teaching you the proper techniques on how to assist. She has a hands on approach that makes her unique as an instructor. Becky is very patient and only wants her students to succeed. She always takes the responsibility on herself to make sure the student has the knowledge they need. She is very knowledgeable in the dental field and any student would be fortunate to have her as their instructor. I felt I was ready to succeed with the knowledge I gained from Mrs. Painter.
August 15, 2011 by Chris B.
Miss Becky is a real down to earth, friendly and helpful instructor. She will do whatever it takes to be sure every student is successful. She is very knowledgeable in the dental field and stays up to date on current products and practices. Mrs. Painter is very organized and task oriented. She is the perfect blend of everything great in the dental office. I would highly recommend learning dental assisting under her instruction.
Aug 15, 2011 by Michelle S.
I Can't Say Enough Good Things About Miss Becky!
I learned more from her than I did in twice the time from my other instructors or teachers combined. She really took the time to explain every subject and procedure. She also always checked for understanding and diligently worked with each student, until they were able to be signed off with an excellent grade. She was able to teach the program and blend it effectively with her real world dental assisting experience. This allowed her students to enter their first jobs with better skills and the confidence to shine. I have since moved to S. California and I'm continuing my education to take the state test and practical's & become an RDA (Registered Dental Assistant) and additionally testing to specialize as an Orthodontic Assistant.
I'm a mother of four teen daughters and had not been a student in well over 20 years. I had previously managed businesses with large and small staffs, nevertheless, I was nervous and unsure of myself. This was all new and out of my comfort zone. She made me feel confident in my abilities and at ease with all that was new. Her overall teaching style allowed me to worry less, retain more, and learn so well, that I was able to help work with other students when they were new and struggling. There is no doubt that Miss Becky loves the Dental Field, loves teaching it to others, and that her goal everyday is for every student to succeed and reach their goal!
