On-Site Program

This program is the traditional 10 week long program that will consist of in office-lectures and training on Saturdays from 9 am till 5 pm.

Why Choose a Career in the Dental Industry?

According to the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of dental assistants is expected to grow 11% over the next 10 years – faster than the average job growth of many other industries. New and ongoing evidence suggests an important link between a person’s overall health and their oral health. Because of this, demand for dental-related services is expected to stay strong for years to come. Dental offices in Georgia and other states must meet this projected demand. As such, the need for trained dental assistants will continue to grow.

As Baby Boomers grow older and as more men and women practice good oral hygiene, the need to treat and maintain one’s teeth will lead to an increased need for quality dental care. Over the next decade, the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests that nearly 24,000 new dental assisting jobs will be created. That means the future is bright for any student who has been educated through our dental assisting courses in Acworth.

Quick Facts About Dental Assistant Careers Over the Next 10 Years

What Does a Dental Assistant Do?

As a professional dental assistant, you will be tasked with managing a wide range of administrative and clinical responsibilities at a dental office. Dental assistants play a crucial role in the day-to-day workflow involved in a dental practice. They work alongside hygienists and dentists to provide patients with the highest quality oral care in the state of Georgia.

Common dental assistant job duties may include:

Why Attend a Dental Assisting School in Acworth, GA?

Work in an Ever-Growing Industry

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported that job growth for dental assistants is growing at a faster rate than most other industries. This bodes well for our students, who will have job security as they navigate the workforce. In a time where many jobs are being replaced by robotics and other technological advances, the skills that you learn at Assisting 101 can help you for the rest of your life.

Ability to Make a Difference

When you are a dental assistant, you plan a crucial role in your dental office. But as an ambassador of the profession, you also help educate patients about the benefits of good oral hygiene. Given the ties between heart health and oral health, you are making more of a difference than you might realize.

Fulfilling Balance Between Life and Work

The work/life balance in the U.S is a problem. Spending every waking hour at the office instead of home with family can be draining at best and depressing at worst. Unlike other professionals, dental assistants typically enjoy normal working hours during the business week. That means they have more free time to dedicate to their children and families.

Opportunity for Professional Growth

When students graduate from Assisting 101 and accept a job as a dental assistant, many choose to make it their lifelong career. For others, the role of dental assistant is just the beginning – a steppingstone to a role with more responsibility. After only a few years as a dental assistant in Acworth, the chance to become a manager or supervisor will become much more likely. The sky is the limit!

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — It seems like hundreds of metro Atlanta families have had to deal with bursting water pipes during this holiday cold snap.

Channel 2′ s Dave Huddleston learned that our building codes and otherwise warm climate may play a role.

Huddleston spoke with the owner of a plumbing company who said there are two reasons we don’t insulate our pipes the way they do in other parts of the country.

At City Wide Plumbing in Acworth, owner David Johnson is talking about the nonstop phone calls since Friday.

He has 10 plumbing crews and all of them are running from one service call to the next.

“You feel guilty -- every call -- you feel guilty because I can’t be there until Thursday,” Johnson said.

Johnson told Huddleston that most calls are for busted pipes from our extremely cold temperatures. And he said it’s going to get worse.

“When they’re frozen, you may not have water. But at least it’s not going all over your house. When it starts thawing, you got water coming out where it’s not supposed to be coming out of,” Johnson said.

Johnson said there are a couple of reasons metro Atlanta is seeing so many pipes bursting and breaking.

“We don’t have our pipes insulated like you do up north. We don’t encapsulate our homes the way you do up north. You guys make houses tight. We’re down here -- we got humidity and things like that. If we make our houses too tight, you got mold,” Johnson said.

He says there’s not much we can do about the building codes, but we can insulate our pipes for winter.

“If you have outside pipes on the outside walls, those are the ones you need to be careful of. Wrap all your outside faucets, the ones outside. If you got a yard hydrant that sticks up out of the ground, wrap those,” Johnson said.

He told Huddleston to let your faucets drip water during the colder temperatures to keep the water flowing.

Johnson said it’s better to pay an extra $20 on your water bill than $800 for a busted pipe.

With Virginia’s football season having concluded, players from across the country swarming to the transfer portal, and high schoolers looking to commit, we are going position by position, breaking down what the Virginia football roster currently looks like with an eye toward next season.

Thus far, just about every position group we’ve discussed will have some new faces entering the fold for next season. The defensive line is different in that respect as all four starters from this past fall are returning in 2023 including a pair of All-ACC Honorable Mentions in defensive end Chico Bennett Jr. and defensive tackle Aaron Faumui.

Faumui led the defensive lineman in tackles this season with 39 total including 8.5 for loss and he was tied for third most in sacks on the team with 4. 2023 will be Faumui’s sixth year UVA after he began his career in 2018. Faumui made nine starts across 10 appearances en route to career highs in tackles and sacks.

Bennett put up the second most tackles among the defensive linemen with 34. He had 7.5 tackles for loss, including a team-high seven sacks. In his nine starts over 10 appearances, Bennett’s 0.7 sacks per game were fourth most in the ACC and his 4 quarterback hurries tied for the team high.

Jahmeer Carter and Kameron Butler joined Faumui and Bennett on the defensive line, and both started all ten games this season. Carter up 29 tackles including one for loss while Butler added 29 more. Butler had 4.5 tackles for loss including three sacks as well as three quarterback hurries. Butler also contributed two forced fumbles, as did Bennett.

Beyond that starting four, all of whom should be expected to start again next season, Paul Akere, Olasunkonmi Agunloye, and Ben Smiley III also played a significant role this season. Akere recorded 22 tackles, four sacks, and two quarterback hurries. Agunloye had 20 tackles, 2 of which were for a loss including one sack. Lastly, Smiley put up 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks in his eight appearances.

Those seven guys will all be expected to hold their roles next season, but a selection of others will look to push for some playing time as well. Sophomore defensive end Bryce Carter is a former four-star recruit who was the fourth-ranked player in the state of Virginia and the 121st-ranked player in the entire country for the 2021 high school class. He was the top player in UVA’s 2021 recruiting class.

Jonathan Horton is another four-star recruit on Virginia’s roster at the defensive end position. He was the 12th-ranked player from Louisiana in the 2020 class and the 307th-ranked player nationally. Horton was UVA’s top recruit in the 2020 cycle

Terrell Jones, a three-star in the 2022 class, is another name to keep an eye moving forward as well as Michael Diatta and Lorenz Terry, a pair of 2021 three-star recruits.

With regards to the 2023 recruiting class, the UVA staff brought in several talented recruits. Three-star Miles Greene from Highland Springs High School is the highest ranked of the bunch. He ranks as the 31st-ranked player in the state of Virginia.

COMMENTS

He’s joined by fellow three-stars Jason Hammond from St. Thomas Acquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Mekhi Buchanan from Allatoona High School in Acworth, Georgia, DJ Jones from Hillsborough High School in Tampa, Florida, and Anthony Britton from Lake Taylor High School in Norfolk, Virginia.

Jan. 20—State-to-State verification cancels multi state credentials

Do you drive in Georgia with a valid license but also spend the summer in Florida with credentials there as well?

Florida now checks state-to state verification to prevent anyone from having records in two states. If you have two licenses or a license in one state and an ID Card in another, you will face cancellation.

The Georgia Department of Driver Services urges customers to check their license status at dds.georgia.gov if this affects them.

The State-to-State Verification Service is a means for a state to electronically check with all other participating states to determine if the applicant currently holds a driver license or identification card in another state. While this service has been available since 2015, many of Georgia's neighboring states have now joined including Florida. This program stops those who are ineligible for a credential in one state to obtain issuance in a neighboring state eliminating unsafe drivers from being on the road.

"The mission of S2S is always highway safety," said Commissioner Spencer R. Moore. "One record per individual eliminates the opportunity for a suspended driver to be issued in a different state. It is also an identity theft deterrent."

For complete driver education and issuance information including an easy license status check, visit www.dds.georgia.gov. For more information on S2S, visit the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators at aamva.org.

After nearly a month of repairs related to December’s freeze and the subsequent flooding from burst pipes, the Vinings Libary branch of the Cobb public library system will reopen next Monday, January 23.

The Vinings Library, the Freeman Poole Senior Center and the West Cobb Senior Center all suffered damage when the temperatures plummeted and stayed below freezing for several days.

At the time, the following was posted to the county website:

Like hundreds of Cobb County businesses and homes, some county facilities suffered water damage from pipes bursting following three days of sub-freezing temperatures. The damage will keep the facilities closed to the public at least through the New Year’s Day weekend.

Crews responded to the Vinings Branch Library on Christmas Day, where a sprinkler line burst damaging the building.

Workers were able to shut off the water and begin repairs. It appears the books in the stacks were undamaged, but repairs to the building could take some time.

Vinings Library is located at 4290 Paces Ferry Rd., Atlanta 30339. The library’s hours are Monday-Wednesday: 10 am to 8 pm; Thursday-Friday: 10 am to 6 pm, and Saturday: 10 am to 5 pm.

About the Cobb County Public Library

Cobb County Public Library is a 15-branch system headquartered in Marietta, Georgia, where its staff members serve a diverse population of over 750,000 people. Cobb is one of Georgia’s fastest-growing counties, and Cobb County Public Library is dedicated to being a resource center in the community by providing equal access to information, materials, and services.

The first public library in Cobb County was opened in the home of Sarah Freeman Clarke in Marietta. The first standalone library building, opened on Church Street in 1893 and was named for Clarke.

Libraries were opened in Acworth and Austell in subsequent years, and in 1959, the city of Marietta and several other Cobb County libraries combined to form a countywide system that began the Cobb County Public Library as we know it today.
