Choosing Your Dental Assisting Course In Buckhead, GA

At Assisting 101, students have their choice of two unique dental assisting programs in Buckhead. Both programs consist of 78 hours of lecture and 48 hours of in-depth, hands-on training at one of the best dental offices in metro Atlanta. Both programs allow students to build a career in dentistry with the help of real dentists and dental assistants.

STUDENTS CAN CHOOSE FROM TWO DIFFERENT COURSE PROGRAMS: ON-SITE AND ONLINE.

Online Dental Assistant Course

Our online program is ideal for those students that like to complete training at their own pace. If you are an eager student willing to study every day and want to complete this program in as little as one month, you can do so. However, if you would like to take more time to manage other life responsibilities, you have the choice of completing this course in less than six months.

When you choose our online dental assisting course, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Begin classes at any time. With Assisting 101's online course structure, students may begin learning as soon as their registration is approved.
  • Obtain a customized welcome kit that includes your textbooks, studying materials, alginate impression kits, dentition models, x-ray kit, pouring model package, and scrubs. This way, you can experience hands-on learning from the comfort of your home.
  • Take 10 academic sessions online, totaling 78 hours of lecture time and 30 hours of hands-on training seminars.
  • Immerse yourself in the world of dental assisting, through educational lectures. These lectures contain demonstration videos, slide shows with instructor voice-overs, and rich illustrations to ensure you retain crucial skills and information.
  • Complete the course as quickly as you would like. Dedicated, hardworking students can finish our online dental assisting course in Buckhead, GA, within a month!
  • Use our externship placement services to help you discover local dental offices in need of interns to help you fulfill our course competencies. While not mandatory for graduation, an externship will help you better prepare for a long career in dentistry. An externship can also be an incredible way to network with industry professionals and work at an office that may hire you down the road.
  • Engage with your instructor, who will be with you every step of the way while you carve your path to a new, rewarding career.

On-Site Dental Assistant Course

Our on-site dental assisting program is perfect for students who do not have to travel long distances to our facility or need to "rush" to complete the course.

THIS PROGRAM IS MORE IN LINE WITH A TRADITIONAL COLLEGE EXPERIENCE AND GIVES STUDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO:

  • Immerse yourself in a traditional 10-week-long program consisting of training and in-office lectures each Saturday from 9AM until 5PM. On-site classes are conducted in an intimate teaching environment to ensure each student gets the attention they need and deserve.
  • Learn from successful dental professionals in our state-of-the-art dental assisting school in Buckhead, GA. Because this program is only offered four times a year, class space is very limited.
  • Get a basic understanding of common dental assisting techniques through lectures in the morning. You will put those techniques to use in our operatories in the afternoon, where you will practice real-world dental assistant duties.
  • Attend an orientation meeting, where you will receive your textbooks, studying materials, scrubs, and more.
  • Benefit from 48 hours of shadowing by our fully trained technicians and dental professionals. While you are being shadowed, your instructor will walk you through important procedures and teach you crucial skills needed for a fulfilling career as a dental assistant.
  • Build friendships and lifelong relationships with like-minded students who also want to begin a career in the dental industry.

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.

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.

HUB404 is a transformative half-mile greenspace in Buckhead which will create a nine-acre "cap park" atop the GA400.

BUCKHEAD, GA — The HUB404 Conservancy board named the nonprofit organization's first executive director, according to a news release.

Anthony Rodriguez's new role was announced Wednesday, May 4. Established with the Buckhead Community Improvement District (CID), HUB404 is a transformative half-mile greenspace in Buckhead which will create a nine-acre "cap park" atop the GA400 and encourage economic development, the release stated.

"I'm honored to get the opportunity to lead this innovative and transformative project," Rodriguez said in a statement. "The vision for HUB404 is ambitious, but it is exactly what is needed to bring urban sustainability and economic development together in the heart of Buckhead. I look forward to working with the Conservancy board to make the vision a reality."

In this role, Rodriguez will direct the next phases of funding, planning and development for the award-winning project, leveraging his decades of experience in nonprofit leadership and community service, according to the release.

Rodriguez previously co-founded and served as president, CEO and producing artistic director of the Aurora Theatre, the second-largest nonprofit professional theatre production company in Georgia. During his tenure, Aurora Theatre grew from a startup with one employee and a $50,000 annual budget to a professional company with nearly 30 employees and a $4.2 million annual budget, according to the release.

"We're thrilled to have Anthony join the HUB404 Conservancy team," said Jim Durrett, executive director of the Buckhead CID. "Through his leadership and experience, he will ensure that HUB404 will add accessible public greenspace in Buckhead's commercial core – a necessity which is critical to create a connected, sustainable and walkable community."

Joining as executive director, Rodriguez will have the support from a board with members from a variety of backgrounds in both the public and private sectors, the release stated.

"Bringing this park to life will depend on funding and partnership from a range of public and private sources," said interim chair of the HUB404 Conservancy Court Thomas. "Anthony's experience makes him well suited to secure the support needed for a project of this scale and turn it into a reality."

A graduate of the University of Georgia, Rodriguez has garnered many awards and accolades during his professional career including being named one of the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's 50 Most Influential Latinos in Georgia as well as making regular appearances in Atlanta Magazine's Atlanta 500, according to the news release. Rodriguez also led Aurora Theatre to earn Atlanta Magazine'sBest Inclusive Programming honor and Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce's Moxie Award for Outstanding Organization.

By John Ruch

Five Atlanta sites are among statewide winners of Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation awards, including a school rehabilitation that earned the top honor.

The Atlanta-headquartered Georgia Trust announced its 2022 Preservation Awards at an April 23 event in Savannah. The Atlanta honorees included:

Academy Lofts, Marguerite Williams Award

This remake of the former, century-old George W. Adair Elementary School won the award for “the project that has had the greatest impact on preservation in the state.” The long-vacant building at 711 Catherine St. in Adair Park has been turned into housing — mostly consisting of affordable and artist units — as well as a coffee shop and restaurant. The lofts also partners with nonprofits for wrap-up services for formerly homeless residents.

Fox Theatre’s Moller Organ, a.k.a. “Mighty Mo,” Excellence in Preservation

The historic Midtown theater’s 1929 organ was in need of preservation and restoration in 2017. A painstaking, year-long restoration was undertaken by A.E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Co. of Lithonia.

Kimpton Sylvan Hotel, Excellence in Rehabilitation

This new hotel at 374 East Paces Ferry Road in Buckhead is a rehabilitation of the former Paces Ferry Tower, an apartment building dating to 1951. Constructed in the International Style, it was briefly the tallest structure in Buckhead, according to the Georgia Trust. Architect James C. Wise designed several Buckhead mansions and oversaw a 1960s renovation of the Swan Coach House at the Atlanta History Center.

Midtown High School, Excellence in Stewardship

This Atlanta Public Schools (APS) campus at 929 Charles Allen Drive in Midtown includes seven buildings dating from 1922 to the present. APS recently undertook a restoration and expansion that included the 1924 classroom building and gyms dating to 1938 and 1970. “Atlanta Public Schools has demonstrated its stewardship of the property by giving new life to the century-old campus, ensuring its longevity through careful upkeep and thoughtful expansion,” said the Georgia Trust in a press release.

Poplar Street Offices, Excellence in Rehabilitation

These adjacent, century-old storefront buildings at 83 Poplar St. Downtown are the home of Smith Dalia Architects, which extensively rehabilitated them.

For the full list of statewide winners, see the Georgia Trust’s website.

Mount Royal Temporarily Closes in Buckhead After Hugh Acheson Departs the Restaurant

After opening Montreal-style steakhouse Mount Royal and rooftop lounge Spaceman at the Hyatt Centric hotel in Buckhead four months ago, chef Hugh Acheson is no longer affiliated with either restaurant.

On Wednesday afternoon, a future patron of Mount Royal alerted Eater to a “change in management” after their reservation for later this week was canceled by the hotel. Another patron provided a voicemail recording from Mount Royal stating that the restaurant is undergoing some “exciting changes” and therefore is closing temporarily for dinner. Their reservation was slated for April 23.

“We can confirm that Hugh is no longer a part of this project at the Hyatt and that Mount Royal and Spaceman should continue to operate as they have been,” a spokesperson for Acheson says when reached for comment. The spokesperson declined to elaborate further on the reason for the split, saying only that the chef is “looking forward to working on future restaurant projects.”

A source with knowledge of the situation indicates the decision to part ways with the hotel came down to “creative differences” between Acheson and hotel management.

With Acheson’s departure from the restaurants, it appears chef Sam Herndon (head of Acheson’s culinary team) is also no longer affiliated with Mount Royal and Spaceman.

“Mount Royal is open for breakfast 7 days a week and we look forward to welcoming guests back in for dinner soon,” Hyatt Centric Buckhead general manager Kristi Cotten says, who declined to provide further details on whether the hotel plans to rebrand the restaurants.

Spaceman remains open on the 15th floor of the hotel for cocktails and food, Thursday through Sunday evenings starting at 5 p.m.

Mount Royal was particularly close to Acheson’s heart. The Canadian-born chef called the steakhouse an ode to his hometown of Ottawa and neighboring city of Montreal. The menu centers on prime cuts of steak paired with French-Canadian dishes like Lyonnaise salad, tourtiere (meat pies), and sour pickles.

In early March, Acheson and Herndon traveled to Romania and Poland for two weeks to assist in coordinating food distribution efforts with World Central Kitchen (WCK) to help feed refugees fleeing from the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“I can help cook, expedite, and triage a very complex situation,” Acheson told Eater at the time. “I worry about literally half a million people wandering in the cold wondering when they will ever sleep in their beds at home again . . . We can all do things.”

Update, April 13, 6:30 p.m.: This story has been updated with comments from representatives of Hyatt Centric hotel in Buckhead.

A Lebanese Restaurant Rooted in Family Traditions Opens This Summer in Buckhead

Ryan and Jonathan Akly and chef Ian Winslade, the team behind Mission and Market and Tre Vele, just released new details about their upcoming Lebanese restaurant Zakia opening at the Modera Prominence early this summer.

Named for the Akly’s grandmother, and with food taking inspiration from the family’s roots in Lebanon, the menu for Zakia will include traditional and original dishes from the country and regions throughout the Middle East. Some dishes at Zakia will center on family recipes, many of which the brothers say they grew up eating. A pita oven is also being installed in the kitchen for baking fresh bread daily.

“I am really excited to dive back into the flavors of the eastern Mediterranean that I experienced early in my career and expand upon that while bringing out the deep, rich Lebanese culture and drawing inspiration from meals the Akly’s grandmother made for them growing up that have been passed down from generation to generation,” Winslade says in a press release.

As for the design of Zakia, it too blends the traditional elements with more modern aspects of Middle Eastern design and allows for plenty of natural light to flow through the 150-seat dining room. The bar seats an additional 12 people, with an adjacent lounge area seating another 30 people. An open-air patio resides in front of the restaurant.

Joining Zakia at the Lenox Road luxury apartment complex this year are CT Reforma, backed by the owners of CT Taqueria and CT Al Pastor, and a location of California-based sandwich shop Mendocino Farms. A location of milkshake and dessert shop Yard Milkshake Bar is already open at the complex.
