Lisa Stevenson

President, CEO


Mrs. Stevenson is a native of Arizona. She attended high school in Arizona and went on to attend SCC and NAU. She is a graduate of a well-known dental assisting school here in Arizona. She is X-ray certified by the Arizona State Dental Board of Examiners. Mrs. Stevenson has been in the dental field for decades and has been involved in many different aspects of dentistry starting with general dentistry venturing on in the field of Pedodontics and Orthodontics. Dentistry has been her passion since a young age however, her expertise encompasses supervision and clinical instruction for future dental assistants.

She has also played a big part in training other dental assistants on staff in different offices. It was in 2001 that she along with Dr. Di Vito decided to open a dental assisting school that would prepare students with the knowledge and technical proficiency that will allow them to become immediately employable in a dental office upon graduation.

Mrs. Stevenson is very much involved with the everyday happenings within the school and with each and every student that comes through the school, thus making the school a great success. We continue to train well-needed dental assistants in this field and have established a great rapport with local dentists and dental offices in Arizona.

With that being said, the longevity of our program speaks volumes in our success educating individuals in the field of dentistry.

Lisa and I started a dental assisting program in 2001 to alleviate the dentist from spending chair time training and also saving a potential student from spending to much time and too much money learning to be a dental assistant. Here we are approximately two decades later and our success shows through our students and the longevity of the program!
