A wise person once said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”
At Dental Assisting 101, we believe that everyone deserves a chance to enjoy a career doing what they love. Unfortunately, many men and women in Georgia settle for soulless, thankless jobs with no upward mobility. If you are stuck in a job just to pay the bills, your opportunity to make a change and build a better life is here.
Unlike traditional colleges, we offer our students an expedited pathway to success through a hands-on educational approach where students learn by doing. One of the best ways to secure your future and set yourself up for success is to learn from the best. That’s exactly what you’ll get when you enroll in our dental assisting school in Johns Creek, GA. We pride ourselves on having one of the most effective dental assisting courses in the state, where most students find a position within 60 days of graduation.
When it comes to decisions, choosing a new career path is one of the most important of your life. It’s not an easy choice, and it can be even harder to juggle your current responsibilities while you study and attend class. That is why we offer both in-person and online course structures, focusing on teaching practical skills that you will use every day as a dental assistant. When you choose Assisting 101, you can rest easy knowing you won’t spend valuable time trying to discern complicated lectures or irrelevant tasks. Instead, you will learn crucial skills that will set you apart from your peers and help you begin a new life-changing career in the dental industry.
When you enroll in our dental assisting school, you will reap the benefits of:
At Assisting 101, students have their choice of two unique dental assisting programs in Johns Creek. 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.
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.Learn More
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.
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.
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 Johns Creek.
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.
They say the best way to predict the future is to create it, and that is exactly what you will be doing when you enroll at Assisting 101. We believe in getting our students ready for a lifelong career, not just a job that pays the bills. When you attend our award-winning dental assisting school, you are investing in a future rich with opportunity.
Unlike other workers who choose not to attend school for legitimate training, our students enjoy a quick start in a vibrant job market where financial and personal growth are common. When you become a dental assistant after graduation, you will have confidence knowing you are well-prepared for a life-changing career.
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.
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.
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.
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 Johns Creek, the chance to become a manager or supervisor will become much more likely. The sky is the limit!
Assisting 101 was founded on the concept of helping individuals through our unique and enhanced training programs to achieve a more rewarding career in a professional environment. If you’re fed up with being fed up and are ready to start fresh with a clean slate, contact us today at (678) 888-5198. We would be happy to tell you more about our school, our courses, and our class schedule. If you’re craving a happy career and happy life, the time for a change is now.Call Us (678) 888-5198

ATHENS, Ga. --- University of Georgia gymnastics head coach Courtney Kupets Carter has announced the addition of three gymnasts to the 2022 signing class.
Sidney Fitzgerald of Evans, Ga., Nicole King of Johns Creek, Ga., and Eryn Williams of Knoxville, Tenn. will join Naya Howard of Chesapeake, Va., Jacquelyn (Jacquie) Moran of Santa Cruz, Calif., and Ariel Posen of Manalapan, N.J. as freshmen during the 2023 season.
"The addition of Sidney, Nicole, and Eryn enhances an already top-notch recruiting class," Kupets Carter said. "What's so great about this class as a whole is that they'll be ready to contribute right away in competition. With this recruiting class, and those to come, Georgia gymnastics is making it's way to the top. Their skills and technique are aspects we strive for as a program and they'll be bringing them day one."
Fitzgerald will join the GymDogs after training at C&C Gymnastics. She was a national qualifier in 2021 and a member of the first place team at Nationals on top of being a member of the National Honor Society.
"I remember cheering on the GymDogs in Stegman as a little girl," Fitzgerald said. "It's always been a dream of mine to be a part of this incredible program. In addition, I am blessed to be able to further my education at such a prestigious university. I cannot wait to get started."
King comes to Georgia after training BIO Gymnastics. She was a 2021 Level 10 State Champion on vault and a Junior Olympics Nationals Qualifier. In 2019 she was the Level 9 Regional Champion in the all-around, bars, and vault.
"I chose UGA because I love everything about it- from the supportive coaches that will foster my development to the amazing facilities and high-level academics," King said. "I am grateful to be close to home and to have the support of friends and family. I can't wait to be a Dawg."
Williams comes to UGA after training at Premier Athletics. She has been a consistent Level 10 State and Regional qualifier. Premier Athletics named her the 2021 Optional Gymnast of the Year.
"I chose the University of Georgia because it was a mixture of everything I ever wanted in college," Williams said. "Not only does UGA offer amazing facilities and an incredible coaching staff, but also high-level academics, enthusiastic sports fans, and such a beautiful campus. The entire atmosphere of Georgia is so unmatched and when I first arrived in Athens, I instantly knew this is where I wanted to be for the next four years."

ATHENS, Ga. — Terri Moody Hancock, one of the most decorated golfers in the University of Georgia's history, has been elected to the Georgia State Golf Association's Hall of Fame, the organization announced on Wednesday.
An Athens native, Hancock was the first female to earn a full athletic scholarship to UGA and went on to become the school's first individual national champion in women's athletics in any sport.
Hancock was a two-time All-America at Georgia and the school's first women's golfer to compete on the LPGA Tour. She attended the Athens Academy (1973-77) where she was a two-time state high school champion while competing on the boy's golf team. While at UGA, Hancock led the team to 16 victories in a three-year span, including winning five individual titles of her own. In 1981 during her senior year, she won the first individual national championship in UGA women's athletics history at the AIAW National Championship, also becoming just the fourth UGA student-athlete to win an individual national title. Hancock was the 1981 Broderick Award winner for women's golf as the nation's top collegiate golfer. She was also the 1981 National Golfer of the Year, becoming only the third UGA student-athlete to win a national player of the year award in any sport. Hancock qualified for the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship each year while at UGA in 1977, 1978, 1979 and 1980 and earned low amateur honors at the 1979 U.S. Women's Open. In 1980, she was a member of the Curtis Cup Team, where she helped the United States to a 13-5 victory over Great Britain and Ireland. She also won the 1976 Georgia Women's Amateur Championship. After her collegiate golf career came to an end, Hancock earned her LPGA Tour card and competed on the professional circuit for five years. She then retired from competing on Tour full-time to focus on starting a family. In 1997, Hancock was named to the University of Georgia's Circle of Honor, which is designed to pay tribute to extraordinary student-athletes and coaches who by their performance and conduct have brought honor to the university. She was inducted into the National Golf Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2000 and the State of Georgia's Sports Hall of Fame in 2018.
The Georgia Golf Hall of Fame's Class of 2022 also includes Tommy Brannen, a well-known club professional with a successful competitive record who is the longtime PGA Master Golf Professional at Augusta Country Club; Bruce Heppler, the longtime head men's golf coach at Georgia Tech; and William Lewis, a lifelong advocate and contributor to the game who built both a successful playing and teaching professional career.
The Georgia Golf Hall of Fame, which is dedicated to the preservation of Georgia's golf traditions, heritage, achievements and excellence, was created by an act of the Georgia General Assembly in 1982. Headquartered in Augusta, the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame began inducting members in 1989 and held an induction ceremony in Augusta annually through 2009. During the 2010 legislative session, the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame Authority and Commission was abolished. The Georgia State Golf Association then entered into an agreement with the Georgia Department of Economic Development to manage the ongoing activities associated with the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame. The GSGA is authorized to host the annual induction banquet and store and display Hall of Fame members' memorabilia in the recently opened Georgia Golf Hall of Fame Room inside Murray Golf House at Bobby Jones Golf Course in Atlanta. The induction ceremony was revived in 2011 at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek and is now held annually.

The 31st Annual Georgia Construction Careers.com Corky Kell Classic will kick off the 2022 GHSA football season with a four-day, 10-game lineup that will take place at four separate locations from Aug. 17-20. Three straight days of double-headers, which will all be first-ever meetings between programs, will start on Wednesday and will lead up to a four-game marathon of Class 7A matchups at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday. All games have been televised on PeachtreeTV the last three years and early this year more than 250,000 viewers tuned into the games.
Johns Creek will host the first double-header on Wednesday with Kell facing Cherokee Bluff in the 5:30 p.m. slot and Parkview taking on Johns Creek at 8:30 p.m. Reclassification has brought significant changes ahead of the 2022 season and Wednesday’s double header will feature teams from four different classifications; Cherokee Bluff (4A), Kell (5A), Johns Creek (6A), Parkview (7A).
On Thursday at West Forsyth, Class 6A programs North Atlanta and North Forsyth will play at 5:30 p.m. ahead of Class 7A powerhouses Archer and West Forsyth.
Friday will feature another stacked pair of matchups and will be played at Rome’s Barron Stadium. In the opening 5:30 p.m. slot, Class 5A Cass will take on Kennesaw Mountain—which will be making its Class 7A debut following the program’s first-ever region championship campaign this past season in Class 6A. As for Cass, the Colonels clinched a playoff berth this last season out of Region 7-5A and battled with the likes of Cartersville, Calhoun and Blessed Trinity. The backend of Friday’s double-header will pair host Rome and Creekside in another first-ever meeting between programs. Creekside is hosting Warner Robins this week in the Class 5A semifinals and Rome was able to win the Region 5-6A title this season.
The Corky Kell Classic returned to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2021 and it was a historic collaboration that gave the event access to all the tools in the venue’s groundbreaking state-of-art control room. This allowed the Corky Kell to present an unparalleled high school football broadcast and that will continue again in 2022. The joint venture proved to be a massive success and spring-boarded the Corky Kell Classic to the next level. This year, a four-pack of Class 7A battles will be broadcasted from the MBS studios—putting Georgia’s exceptional talent on display with the most groundbreaking technology in the game.
McEachern and North Gwinnett will kick things off in the opening game at 10 a.m. before Gwinnett County’s Brookwood and Norcross take the field at 1 p.m. Walton takes on Mill Creek at 4 p.m. before the finale game of the 2022 classic at 7 p.m. The Marietta Blue Devils are locked in to play in the final slot and the Corky Kell leadership is currently negotiating to pair them with another top Class 7A opponent for the primetime slot.
Top prospects have appeared in the Corky Kell Classic throughout the last 30 years and the 2022 edition will have another star-powered lineup. Mill Creek five-star safety Caleb Downs is the No. 2 rated Class of 2023 prospect in the state and Brookwood quarterback Dylan Lonergan is the No. 8 rated prospect in the state. Among the other nationally-ranked Class of 2023 prospects taking the field will be Grayson’s four-star safety Michael Daugherty, North Gwinnett’s four-star linebacker Grant Godfrey and defensive lineman Kayden McDonoald, Rome’s four-star defensive lineman Stephiylan Green, Norcross’ four-star tight end Lawson Luckie and three stars Jace Arnold (Marietta), Seven Cloud (McEachern), Connor Lew (Kennesaw Mountain), Zion Taylor (Parkview), Colin Houck (Parkview) and Daiquan White (Creekside).
