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 Buckhead.

Quick Facts About Dental Assistant Careers Over the Next 10 Years

What Does a Dental Assistant Do?

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 Buckhead, the chance to become a manager or supervisor will become much more likely. The sky is the limit!

Buckhead remains wealthier and is growing faster than the rest of Atlanta, according to 2020 U.S. Census data.

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), a metro area planning agency, provided Buckhead.com with an analysis of the latest Census results for Buckhead and the rest of Atlanta. All Census findings are estimates of the ever-changing population and their lives, but they give a snapshot of where life stands and where it’s heading.

The federal government conducts the Census every 10 years, asking Americans various questions about themselves. The results are supplemented by regular surveys. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the results of the 2020 Census took a while to come in. The following are the ARC’s estimates for 2021 statistics.

Population

Buckhead’s estimated population is 108,388 — about one-fifth of the entire city. That’s nearly 25,000 more residents added in the past 10 years. Buckhead’s compound rate of population growth, 2.34%, is well above the rest of Atlanta, which is at 1.38%. And the ARC expects that boom to continue, with Buckhead adding a net of roughly 10,000 more residents over the next four years.

The daytime population — the combination of residents who stay and workers who arrive — is even higher in a heavily commuter-oriented neighborhood. Buckhead’s daytime population is estimated at 164,746, contributing to the overall Atlanta total of 722,656.

Demographics

Buckhead’s population skews a bit older than the city as a whole. The median age is 37.9, while the rest of Atlanta’s is 34. By generation, the biggest single demographic bracket is millennials at 34.1% of the population. That’s followed by Generation X at 19.8% and Baby Boomers at 18.1%.

Buckhead remains heavily majority-White in a city that has a population at least plurality Black, and maybe still a majority, depending on the ebb and flow of estimates. Buckhead’s White non-Hispanic population is 70.65%, compared to 26.94% in the rest of Atlanta. The ARC estimates Atlanta overall as slightly majority Black non-Hispanic at 50.69% of the population, while Buckhead’s Black population is 11.49%.

However, Buckhead is gradually becoming more diverse. The White non-Hispanic population dropped 5% since the last Census. The Black population increased by less than 1%. Residents of Asian background are 7.76% (up 3.19% since the last Census) and Hispanic residents are 7.67% (up very slightly). The population of the rest of Atlanta is about 5% Asian and 4% Hispanic.

Income

Buckhead remains a high-income community. The median household income of $109,774 is far above Atlanta’s overall $68,806; minus Buckhead, the Atlanta median would be $58,025. Buckhead’s per capita income is $85,452, more than twice that in the rest of Atlanta at $40,717.

Buckhead residents have an unemployment rate nearly a third that of Atlanta’s overall figure: 2.4% compared to 6.5%. Minus Buckhead, Atlanta’s unemployment rate would be 7.7%.

Housing

Buckhead remains king of home values and prices. The neighborhood’s median home value of $669,668 far outpaces the overall Atlanta figure of $385,218. Buckhead dominates the supply of homes valued at $2 million or higher at 6.4% of the stock, compared to 0.8% in the rest of Atlanta.

All the same, Buckhead is a majority-renter neighborhood (54.18% of households) in a majority-renter city (58.5%).

Buckhead’s estimated 62,445 housing units represents about 23% of the city’s stock. An estimated 11.53% of those units are vacant, lower than the citywide percentage of 15.17%.

Construction begins on final major segment of PATH400 through Buckhead

Construction is underway on the final major stretch of PATH400, a multi-use path that “runs along the spine of GA 400” in North Atlanta that provides pedestrian and bicycle connectivity to Buckhead neighborhoods and commercial districts.

Mayor Andre Dickens was on hand for the Nov. 11 groundbreaking of the $12.8 million project to build the new three-quarter mile stretch between Wieuca Road and Loridans Drive. Atlanta City Councilmembers Mary Norwood and Howard Shook, who represent Buckhead, were also on hand along with several other local officials.

“PATH400 … is part of a growing trail network that can eventually serve as a valuable economic development tool for our city and the region,” Dickens said in a press release. “Trails like PATH400 help make Atlanta a healthier city, providing accessible and equitable opportunities for exercise and recreation.”

The $12.8 million Wieuca-Loridans segment of PATH400 is funded through federal and local government funds, including approximately $8.8 million from transportation improvement project funds administered by the Atlanta Regional Commission and $3.8 million from the city of Atlanta’s TSPLOST funds. Additional funding for design was contributed by the Buckhead Community Improvement District (BCID).

The Wieuca-Loridans segment connects directly to Mountain Way Common, a park that neighbors have worked for years to develop, said Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead. Livable Buckhead is spearheading the PATH400 project in partnership with the Buckhead CID and the PATH Foundation.

“Creating pedestrian and bike-friendly connections between parks in Buckhead was one of the central purposes for building PATH400, and we’re excited to deliver on that promise with this new segment,” Starling said in the release.

PATH400 is a 5.2-mile walkable, bikeable greenway being constructed on public land adjacent to GA 400 extending from the bank of Peachtree Creek northward toward the northern edge of Atlanta. Construction of the entire route is estimated to cost $37 million, with funding for earlier phases provided by the PATH Foundation and Buckhead CID.

Georgia Department of Transportation provided its right-of-way along GA 400 as land for most of the trail which will stretch from the Atlanta BeltLine to Sandy Springs when it is complete. The PATH Foundation has provided construction management services and expertise at no cost to the project.

Construction on the Wieuca-Loridans segment is expected to take approximately two years. Livable Buckhead will soon begin hosting construction tours for members of the public who are interested in learning more about the project.

Federal funds to boost Buckhead, Midtown park projects

A funding boost of nearly $4 million is in store for a couple of ambitious projects planned to cap Atlanta's interstates.U.S. Rep. Nikema Williams and U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock have secured $3.2 million for the Midtown Connector and $750,000 for HUB404 in the 20...

A funding boost of nearly $4 million is in store for a couple of ambitious projects planned to cap Atlanta's interstates.

U.S. Rep. Nikema Williams and U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock have secured $3.2 million for the Midtown Connector and $750,000 for HUB404 in the 2023 federal spending bill. The funds will go toward constructing parks above Georgia 400 in Buckhead and the Downtown Connector in Midtown.

If completed, those projects would add several acres of park space at the doorstep of high-rises in Buckhead and Midtown. It would also create a convenient way to cross over the interstates running through the districts. A separate project called The Stitch would similarly run above Interstates 75/85 in Downtown.

Project leaders expect the highway caps to spur economic development by improving mobility in Atlanta's urban districts. A blueprint studied by Atlanta and other cities is Klyde Warren Park, a 5-acre greenspace built over a freeway in Dallas, Texas. About a decade after its completion, real estate values in the immediate area grew by more than 150%, according to Kansas City Business Journal. Rental rates for offices and apartments in the area also significantly rose.

Transportation and land-use advocates have criticized the plans as costly and complicated, urging local leaders to instead focus on improving sidewalks, transit connections and bridges. Those advocates have called on the city to earmark properties for affordable housing to prevent the displacement of existing residents if plans ensue for the highway caps.

The Midtown Connector is a proposal to cap a stretch of the Downtown Connector with 17 acres of greenspace. The above-ground park would stretch from North Avenue to 5th Street, connecting Midtown proper to Georgia Tech and West Midtown. The $3.2 million for the project will go toward completing 30% of the design and engineering package.

The recent round of federal funds could help the project compete for federal construction grants. It's unclear when the project could start construction or how much money would be needed to complete it. If it becomes a reality, the park could eventually be extended further north to 10th Street.

HUB404 is planned to run a half-mile from the Georgia 400 and Lenox Road interchange to MARTA's Buckhead rail station on Peachtree Road. It would add 9 acres of greenspace to the commercial core of Buckhead. It would also create an alternative way for residents, workers and visitors to traverse through the district.

The $750,000 will go toward completing the pre-design phase. The engineering for the first phase of HUB404 — raised pedestrian bridges crossing Lenox Road and linking into multi-use trail PATH400 — is expected to begin this year. That section could break ground by the third quarter of 2024 and be completed by 2026. The rest of the engineering for the $270 million project is expected to begin next year, with the completion of the entire cap by 2030.

The Stitch would run for three-fourths of a mile across Interstates 75/85 between MARTA's Civic Center rail station and Piedmont Avenue. It would add 14 acres of greenspace to the central business district, which is poised for a renaissance.

The predecessor to the Georgia Department of Transportation completed the initial construction of the Downtown Connector in the early 1960s. The creation of the interstate system and its later expansions divided neighborhoods, broke street grids and reduced the amount of developable land.

In October 2022, Williams secured almost $1.2 million for The Stitch to offset engineering costs. The $713 million project could start construction by 2026, according to Central Atlanta Progress. The organization hopes to complete the highway cap by 2032.

Ackerman Retail's Daniel Yi brokers lease for ramen eatery's fourth location in metro Atlanta.

ATLANTA, GA, January 20, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- With a lease signing at Mall of Georgia, the largest mall in the state, ramen eatery Okiboru is opening its fourth location in metro Atlanta, joining locations in Sandy Springs, Buckhead and Duluth.

Ackerman Retail Vice President Daniel Yi represented Okiboru in the 3,659-square-foot lease at the Mall of Georgia in a prime location in the mall's large "Village" section that features an amphitheater, lawn, and restaurants and retailers in an outdoor setting. Okiboru's space is located next to the Cheesecake Factory and near an assortment of other popular local and national eateries. The restaurant is targeting a 3Q 2023 opening.

"This is a great location for Okiboru as it continues to expand in metro Atlanta. Ramen restaurants are one of the hottest culinary trends, and this lease gives Okiboru a prominent space in one of Simon Property Group's highest-performing retail centers in the U.S.," said Daniel Yi. "The Mall of Georgia attracts millions of visitors each year from across the northeast Atlanta suburbs as well as travelers along busy Interstate 85 who stop at the mall to enjoy a meal or to shop at one of the 200-plus stores."

Daniel Yi is assisting Okiboru in its search for additional locations in metro Atlanta.

Okiboru specializes in Tsukemen, a dipping ramen in which noodles are served separately for dipping in one of the restaurant's flavorful broths. The menu also features traditional Tonkotsu ramen varieties, ramen bowls such as Truffle Shoyu (with light chicken and fish broth), veggie options such as Yasai (with a vegetable and mushroom broth), bao buns and garlic Nori fries, as well as unique items only available at individual locations.

Okiboru makes ramen noodles from scratch on-site from its own recipe, slowly simmered for twice as long as typical ramen broth so that it has the ideal consistency and flavor.

Okiboru's current metro Atlanta locations include: • 6125 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, GA 30328 • 3614 Satellite Blvd., Duluth, GA 30096 • 2277 Peachtree Road, Atlanta (Buckhead), GA 30309

In addition to metro Atlanta, Okiboru has a location in Manhattan at 117 Orchard Street, New York; see the recent review of the New York location here. For more information, visit www.okiboru.com
