A Message from Dr. Melina Cozby, Director
The Elite Dental Assisting School can help you begin a new career as a dental assistant. Dr. Melina Cozby of Forney Family Dentistry, located just outside Dallas, TX, founded this program to give motivated, compassionate individuals a hands-on educational opportunity in a working dental office. To learn more about our dental assistant program, contact our office today.
Dr. Cozby saw a need for outstanding dental assisting training opportunities in the Dallas area, and designed a program that is integrated with the everyday dental care provided at Forney Family Dentistry. The Elite Dental Assisting School can help you become a valuable member of a dental team.
"I decided to open a dental assisting school several years ago for a couple of reasons. I wanted to make a difference in my profession that was not limited to smiles on patients. I wanted to make a difference in my team, and to help others further their careers. After mentoring several dental health professionals, including dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants, I felt motivated to intervene at the beginning of that path. Becoming a highly skilled and trained dental assistant is limited by the type of instruction and inspiration you receive through your learning process. I love to teach, love to motivate, inspire, and cultivate learning in others. Give me someone who is passionate about wanting to help others, and I will teach them everything I know. I love to watch their passion grow with knowledge that is crafted into skills they will use throughout their career forever."
- Dr. Melina Cozby
Our dental assistant students learn about several types of treatment and aspects of patient care, including:
- Preventive dental treatments, such as cleanings and intraoral exams.
- The creation and placement of dental restorations.
- Working with pediatric patients.
- The placement of dental implants.
- Oral surgery, including root canal therapy and periodontal surgery.
- Helping anxious patients feel comfortable and safe.
- Assisting patients in applying for financing.
- Managing appointments and other front-office responsibilities.
