I have been going to Dr Stern for at least 10 years and have to say he treats his patients like royalty! It has always been a pleasurable experience and he has the latest and greatest technology for various procedures. Going to the dentist needs to be a great experience and I'd consider going here a must! It's always a bonus when you get a perfect report on your teeth too:)

Working as a dental assistant can be fun and extremely rewarding. In a dental practice, the dental assistant role includes a wide variety of tasks, including activities such as patient care and record keeping. Duties of dental assistants actually vary based on the state in which one practices.

Dental assisting is exciting for a few reasons. First, in today's economy, receiving the training and certification that secures ongoing employment creates greater peace of mind. This job is one that brings personal reward, because helping people attain their healthiest smiles changes their lives and the lives of those who treat them.

Current outlook for dental assisting


In the ten-year span between 2010 and 2020, no less than a 31 percent increase in the dental assistant job market is expected. This is far better than the national average for most other occupations. As we continue to learn more from ongoing research in the area of oral health and its direct impact on general health, more people are expected to seek preventative dental services, thus increasing the demand for competent, skilled professionals.

What does this mean for you?


Many people are interested in furthering their career in dentistry. The issue is, attending dental assisting school is, for many, out of reach due to scheduling and the high cost of tuition. Dr. Stern is a part of the Assist to Succeed Dental Assisting Program. Essentially, Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills serves as an Assist to Succeed Dental Assisting School in the Greater Cleveland area.

We hold the necessary accreditation and licensing from the state of Ohio to teach dental assisting. Taking advantage of this program, you will learn the dental assisting skills you need to obtain gainful employment, within a working dental practice with highly experienced practitioners, in a manner that works for you!

Assist to Succeed is not just an alternative to full-time dental assistant school


The Assist to Succeed program is a far cry from traditional DA schools, which require a full-time, 9 to 5 type schedule and costly tuition payments. These schools are held to certain requirements in order to be granted government monies. Specifically, their programs must be no less than one year in length.

Going to school for one year does not mean you are getting better training!


Many dental practices in our area are actually apprehensive to hire from dental assisting schools due to the poor quality of real-life, current-day training. The education obtained at full-time dental assisting schools includes classes on matters unrelated to actual job skills, such as nutrition and accounting. Our program is focused, solid, and holds the same certificate of traditional schooling. Better yet, your training in a practicing dental office leads to better comprehension of today's dental environment.

Your life, in your control


Completion of the Assist to Succeed program can be done on a more workable schedule. Our students come into our office in Willoughby Hills on Saturdays, for a period of several weeks, learning both text and hands-on skills during this convenient class time. Upon completion of this workable ten-week program, you will receive the same certification that you would receive attending a full-time dental assisting school.

The U.S. Department of Labor states that dental assisting ranks third in non-medical school medical careers. With the expansion within the field, the variety within the environment, and the rewards that come from patient care, there are many reasons to explore your options. If you have wondered about the field of dentistry, we encourage you to contact us for more information on our Assist to Succeed class schedule.

Dentistry from the Heart


Dental Clinic Willoughby Hills - Dentistry from the Heart videoDr. Stern and the team at Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills have joined with the International Dentistry from the Heart organization. 2012 was our first year participating in the annual day of free dental service, and we are already looking forward to this year's event!

Dentistry from the Heart is improving healthy smiles in cities across the U.S., as well as in Australia, Canada, Ireland, and Puerto Rico. On event day, Dr. Stern and our clinical team volunteer time to see patients from our community who may not regularly receive dental care due to financial strain. Many of the participants in the Dentistry from the Heart event do not have insurance, or do not have the means to receive regular care from their dentist.

Dentistry from the Heart allows those who may be down on their luck to come out and receive needed dental work.

Helping people improve their smiles enriches our lives as well!
