REAL LIFE TRAINING ENVIRONMENT
Owner / Founder
I graduated and became a dental assistant in my senior year of high school in 1999 . I worked as an assistant for many years before transiting into dental operations, where I found my passion in leadership and growing team members in the dentistry industry. Education and training was always part of my journey and when given the opportunity to start my own academy I jumped on the chance . I opened DAPA in 2011 and graduated our first class. I combined all of the expertise and demands from doctors and colleagues in the field And put together a program that worked. My mission at dental assistant pioneers academy is to support those who have a dream to thrive in the dental field when given the opportunity. We also focus on giving foreign trained dentist a path back into dentistry here in the United States, and my professional mission is to be their advocate .
Rosario Felipe “Rose” has been a dental assistant for over 15 years. She was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to New York in 1978. She currently works with Heartland Dental .
She has been teaching with the Dental Assistant Pioneer Academy (DAPA) since 2011 and has truly enjoyed teaching what she loves to do. Teaching has given her the opportunity to share her experience and expertise in dental assisting, as well as build a new generation of strong dental assistants. She is a mother of 3 children and a grandmother of 3. In her free time, she loves to dance, play in her bowling league, and travel around the world.

Juliana Larson, CDA, CPFDA, EFDA
I’ve been in the dental field since 2008. I went to school and within a month of learning, I knew I wanted to go on to become a Certified Dental Assistant, work in an Endodontic practice, become a Clinical Manager, and teach Dental Assisting. I later went on to become a Certified Preventive Functions Dental Assistant, and a Notary Public. I’ve been blessed to be doing all these things for 10 years now. In my down time, I enjoy volunteering and doing missionary trips working with dedicated Oral Surgeons and Periodontists to help children in need. I love the dental field, and am happy that I get to instill that passion in others.
