  • I am so happy I made the choice to go to this school, Doctor Wilson is the most understanding and kind teacher us girls could have asked for, if we ever had a problem she was one text away and could always help us, in the moments when everything was so overwhelming and i didnt think i could finish the program Doctor Wilson and Rachel were there to motivate me and find another way to help me understand something, I think this by far is the most understanding school in the world, I loved going to school and loved that every day we had two hours of hands on experience, that helped a lot because I’m a very visual person!

  • I would like to give a special shout out to Dr. Wilson and her amazing team. I am beyond lucky to have the opportunity to learn from such a established dentist. Not only is Dr. Wilson a good teacher, she is also a wonderful person in general. She is completely understanding when unexpected things happen, because sometimes they are inevitable. She also does her best to INSURE success in all her students. No one really understands a busy schedule like a dentist. These qualities are not found in teachers very often.
