If your child is interested in a future as a dentist, doctor, oral surgeon, or other medical specialist, the AZOMS Academic Advantage program is a great resource for them to learn more about accomplishing this goal. By bringing together a group of healthcare and education professionals, the AZOMS Academic Advantage program provides you and your child with valuable insight into the steps your child needs to be taking to achieve success.
