Interior Block

"I attended Intellitec Medical Institute during 2014.  In 11 short months, I went from a single mother working dead end jobs, to a single mother with a career in a stable field.  Dr. Jeffrey Simon was an amazing teacher.  His real world experience as a dentist in Colorado for over 20 years really helped prepare me to hit the floor running the second I was hired.  My boss loves me and considers me an important part of the team and I am very thankful I had such a great teacher while I was in school.  Dr. Simon not only taught me so much, but he helped me find an extern site that hired me! Thank you so much Dr. Simon and Intellitec Medical Institute.  Going back to schol was a great choice!"
