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 Roswell, 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.

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 Roswell.
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 Roswell, 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.

A UPS delivery driver left more than just a package at a Roswell home, and now people from all over are returning the kindness.
Last week, Jessica Kitchel was expecting a few packages, but when she checked her Nest door camera, she discovered her driver had delivered much more, WRBL reported.
In the Nest video, the delivery driver is seen walking to Kitchel’s door with a package. With the package dropped off, the driver turned to the camera and said, “If this is the ‘it’s a boy’ house, I hope all is going well with your newborn. I had a child at around the same time you guys did, and I just hope everything is going good. God bless. Happy Holidays.”
Kitchel then shared the act of kindness to social media in hopes of finding the driver.
“It is really easy to focus on what isn’t going right, right now, with staffing storages but it was good to be reminded that there are still great people working hard every day for us! I really wish I knew his name but I hope he comes back and if he does there will be diapers waiting for him!” Kitchel wrote in an Instagram post.
A few days later, thanks to the power of social media, Kitchel was introduced to Dallan Harrell, a then-seasonal driver for UPS, WRBL reported.
“For me, it was about bringing in a new life, it’s also a new experience and now you’re solely dependent for another individual, so with me being in the realm, I’m a parent now, I just wanted to check on them,” Harrell told the news outlet.
After Harrell’s act of kindness spread online, people from all over joined in to purchase items off the registry for his newborn as a way of saying thanks, according to WRBL.
“I had no idea the magnitude of the people wanting to help,” Kitchel told the news outlet. “Yes, he has a newborn, there’s so many things you need with a newborn, and so to just see how incredible the community has been, and his registry has exploded, and I just can’t wait to see what his doorstep looks like next week.”
According to WRBL, Harrell’s registry is now nearly 90% sold out. And the good news doesn’t stop there: Harrell says that UPS has offered him a full-time job with his own route once the holidays are over.
“You never know what people are experiencing no matter how good it looks from the outside,” Harrell told the news outlet. “People don’t hear these messages as often as they should or get the hugs, or kisses that they should, especially around this time, people are missing loved ones, my message is to just pay it forward.”

ROSWELL, Ga. (WRBL) – In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, one delivery driver dropped off more than just gifts and now people from all over have blessed him in return.
What appeared as a simple holiday delivery, quickly turned into a Christmas miracle full of hope, love, and joy for Jessica Kitchel.
Kitchel and her husband Mack live in Roswell, Georgia, with their daughter Charlie and newborn, Chancy. On a day she thought a few packages were arriving, she checked her Nest door camera to find so much more.
Kitchel’s Nest video camera captured a UPS delivery driver saying, “If this is a ‘it’s a boy’ house, I hope all is going well with your newborn. I had a child at around the same time you guys did, I just hope everything is going good, God bless, and Happy Holidays.”
And as the driver walked away, he was unaware of the impact he’d be leaving behind.
“Like most parents, in those first few weeks at home, it can feel isolating,” said Kitchel. “The moment that he said that was a time I needed to hear that encouragement at the most important time. I was blown away that he would take a second to end his day to leave that message for me to see how I was doing, it just blew me away.”
The search began and Kitchel was determined to find the driver and thank him for the kind message. Meantime, she left a token of appreciation on her doorstep in the event he returned before hand.
With the help of social media, the search didn’t take long. A few days later, Kitchel was introduced to Dallan Harrell, a seasonal driver for UPS, and the kind message he left behind actually hit close to home for him.
“For me it was about bringing in a new life, it’s also a new experience and now you’re solely dependent for another individual, so with me being in the realm, I’m a parent now, I just wanted to check on them,” said Harrell.
Kitchel was so moved by his thoughtfulness, she had to share it on social media.
“I mean it blessed me, and I thought I have to put this out there and let other people know and I was blown away by how much it blessed everyone that got to see it that day and through the last several days since it happened,” said Kitchel.
While they spoke on the phone, she had yet to meet him in-person, until five days later when Harrell was back in the neighborhood delivering packages and this time the Kitchel’s were home.
“When I heard the knock at the door, I just knew it had to be him,” said Kitchel.
After Kitchel shared the message to social media, folks from all over have joined in to clear Harrell’s registry for his newborn, a way of giving back to him for his kind gesture.
“It’s completely overwhelming and this is just on paper, I have yet to see everything be delivered and feel it even more, overzealous with that joy,” said Harrell.
“I had no idea the magnitude of the people wanting to help,” said Kitchel. “Yes, he has a newborn, there’s so many things you need with a newborn, and so to just see how incredible the community has been, and his registry has exploded, and I just can’t wait to see what his doorstep looks like next week.”
Kitchel and Harrell also find common ground somewhere else: the power in a small act of kindness.
“I hope and I know it’s made me reflect on taking the second in your day to just see how you can be kind to somebody, and the magnitude, the power of just words of kindness,” said Kitchel. “You know, they’re free, and it can just completely impact someone’s life.”
“You never know what people are experiencing no matter how good it looks from the outside,” said Harrell. “People don’t hear these messages as often as they should or get the hugs, or kisses that they should, especially around this time, people are missing loved ones, my message is to just pay it forward.”
Kitchel says Harrell’s registry is nearly 90% sold out.
And the good news doesn’t stop there, Harrell says UPS has offered him a full-time job with his own route once this holiday season comes to an end.
It’s safe to say this story proves you can count on more than just Santa to deliver this Christmas season.

ROSWELL, GA — Last year, the coronavirus pandemic changed Black Friday as Americans knew it. Retailers in Roswell cut back hours. Some moved sales online to avoid large crowds in stores.
Black Friday falls on Nov. 26 this year. Millions of Americans are now vaccinated against the coronavirus, which means many die-hard shoppers are planning a return to Black Friday normalcy.
Not so fast, some experts say.
While coronavirus may not be top of mind as Americans hit the lines outside their favorite retailers, the ongoing global supply chain issues could take a huge bite out of their Black Friday fun.
Thanks to supply chain issues, many popular holiday gifts will be in short supply or more expensive than usual. While sales might be starting sooner this year, shoppers might not see the steep discounts they're used to on Black Friday, CBS News reported citing Consumer Reports. The problem could be worse for new or in-demand products such as high-tech toys.
Still, some shoppers aren't likely to miss out on their favorite holiday tradition.
As you plan this year's Black Friday itinerary, you'll want to know when malls are open in Roswell:
A recent survey by Gallup found Americans plan to spend an average of $837 on gifts this season, up just slightly from the $805 they estimated they would spend last year.
Both pandemic-era estimates are lower than what Gallup found in the preceding few years, including the record-high $942 recorded in 2019.
Meanwhile, the National Retail Federation is predicting holiday spending this year has the potential to shatter previous records. The organization has predicted holiday sales will increase between 8.5 percent and 10.5 percent over 2020, meaning shoppers intend to spend about $859 billion.
If you are planning to shop in person, here are this year's Black Friday store hours, according to BlackFriday.com, TheBlackFriday.com and Good Housekeeping; however, Patch encourages calling ahead to confirm exact hours with your specific location:
To avoid overspending on holiday gifts, it's important to make a list, set a budget and stick to it. Also, know your shopping triggers. For example, many people can't resist a sale. But not all bargains are created equal, and shoppers should be wary of the "buy more, save more" types of deals.
"You think you are getting a better value when you see $10 off $50 or $20 off $50, but it's the same percent discount, so don't let that discount claim make you spend more," consumer savings expert Andrea Woroch told CNBC.

Cajun restaurant Adele’s closed November 14 after a decade on Canton Street in historic downtown Roswell. Owners Marc Wegman and Ruth Carr-Wegman made the announcement on Facebook, followed by a statement posted to the restaurant’s website. A native of New Orleans, Wegman worked as a chef in restaurants there before moving to Roswell to open Adele’s in 2011. The restaurant’s name references Carr-Wegman’s middle name.
“After 10 great years, Adele’s will permanently close on November 14, 2021,” a statement provided to Eater regarding the decision to close reads. “The friendships made along the way are too numerous to count and words cannot express our gratitude for the incredible support and patronage received.”
Adele’s was known in Roswell for serving dishes influenced by New Orleans and Cajun cuisine, like lump crab cakes, mussels, crawfish etouffee, and fried oyster po’boys. The restaurant was a popular spot for New Orleans Saints fans to gather for games and for weekend brunch, which included crawfish biscuits and gravy and beignets. [FB/Official]
