I really didn't expect to be going back to school at age 51, but I have to say even though it has been a lot of work, I have found it to be very rewarding. The school is very personable and the instructors are really willing to help you out with whatever you need. They seem to want to see you succeed as much as you do.
Review Fortis Institute - Erie
I just started at Fortis Institute in Erie, PA. The staff are very nice and knowledgeable. The classes are taught well and I am learning lots.
The dental hygiene program is great. Hands on - intense but in a good way. The class sizes are small and the instructors are amazing. I am not sure about the other programs with Fortis but I know this one is great.
