Being incharge of the dental program here at Alpine Learning Group, I am amazed at our students at how well they cooperate and succeed in a dental visit. The staff is wonderful preparing them for a dental visit. I have watched several students who were more adverse for any dental procedure (could not even open their mouth) to full cooperation with no problem. I recommend the staff and especially the students for their great accomplishment!
