I was helped in so many ways. You know, I couldn’t be more grateful and blessed, you know, to have the staff here at STVT – the students that I was with and my instructors.  It couldn’t have been any better.

I heard about STVT with commercials when I was just sitting down one night. I heard a commercial about it – saw that they offered the dental assisting program – saw that it was just a few months instead of, you know, years and that’s something that really did interest me.
