Question by roguegreenstarz: Which is better, kaplan or everest for dental assisting?
Are they accredited schools? Do you know someone, or have you graduated from one of them. Did you enjoy the programs. thanks
Answer by jannsody
NEITHER 🙂 Both kaplan and everest are private overly priced For-profit schools, and even though kaplan may be regionally accredited (as opposed to ONLY nationally accredited as with everest), the course credits usually do NOT transfer to other schools. Employers have also been known to throw away resumes with those schools into the garbage can.
Please instead consider the more affordable community college or county vo-tech school as long as the program is accredited by the “american dental association”: http://ada.org/5500.aspx
