Howard HealthCare Academy Celebrates 2019 Graduates

Nearly two dozen students graduated this week from the Howard Healthcare Academy, a California dental school. The students completed the Registered Dental Assistant program.

Part of this fall graduating class includes six students from the former Brightwood College, which suddenly closed December 2018, leaving students stranded mid-program. When the school folded, Howard HealthCare Academy awarded scholarships to the students and assisted in transferring 78% of them to Howard Healthcare Academy to complete their dental assisting studies.

The graduates celebrated the event by hearing from guest speaker Dr. Kami Hoss, one of the school’s co-founders, as well as co-founder of The Super Dentists, the largest pediatric dental practice in San Diego. Hoss said he created the school because he found a need for highly trained dental assistants.
