On Monday, June 17th, employees from our North Hollywood campus attended a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of Dr. Jorge Montes’ non-profit dental venture, Operation Smiles Uplifting Military (OSUM).
Dr. Montes is well known in the North Hollywood area as an extraordinary individual who acts with great selflessness, warmth and integrity in everything he does. He is also considered a local hero for his involvement in saving several police officers’ lives during a bank shootout 16 years ago.
In yet another selfless act, Dr. Montes’ new venture will help address the overwhelming need for uninsured veterans to receive access to dental care.
Dr. Montes has hosted Concorde Career Colleges’ externship students for the past 15 years and our campus is very excited to now help support Dr. Montes with OSUM by volunteering our staff and students.
Thank you Dr. Montes, for all you do for Concorde and the North Hollywood community!
