Student Testimonials

"Just completed my orthodontics course at this wonderful school. Enjoyed a COVID Conscious atmosphere, one on one teaching, and teachers/facilitators that were very knowledgeable throughout the online course and clinical components. They even helped with Lodging, offering a discounted rate at a beautiful hotel within minutes of the college. Would highly recommend the college to anyone."

- Terry Lynn

“The facilitators are amazing. Lots of knowledge and helpful, hands-on help. I appreciated their help and advice so much. They all prepared me for evaluations and exams so I felt confident and ready to go. They are passionate, friendly, and honest and made this year more enjoyable. Great prep for NDAEB with the case-based exam. Great habits made, regarding infection control. Great lab and sterilization practice. Learned so much so quickly.” 

- Charlene

"As a recent graduate of the Dental Assistant Professional Diploma at Columbia College, I felt it was important to write a review about the college. As a mature student, I was worried about going back into education. The teachers and support staff at Columbia are fantastic. The teachers are well educated and knowledgable. I always felt supported. They provide you with the skills you will need to go into the real world, you will work hard and it will be worth it. I would highly recommend Columbia."
