Concorde’s Kansas City Campus Participates in Give Kids a Smile Day

Concorde students provide dental services to local kids.

The American Dental Association’s Give Kids a Smile Day encourages area dentists and dental professionals to provide under-served kids with dental services their families may not be able to afford.  Each year approximately 450,000 kids benefit from events held across the nation.

This year, our Kansas City campus opened the doors to their state-of-the-art dental lab so our dental hygiene students could donate their time and services.  Their efforts helped to educate kids on the importance of proper dental care along with raising awareness about the continued need for dental benefits.

“I think it’s an amazing school. When I sat down for boards, I felt more than adequately prepared. If you put the work in, your success is almost guaranteed.”

“I decided to go to school because I was tired of working dead-end jobs. … When I found out I was pregnant, I realized that I needed a better life for me, for my child, for my husband, and just to better myself.”

“After completion of the RN program I took my NCLEX as soon as I was able, and to my delight I was completely prepared. Now, when people ask, I’m proud to say I went to Concorde.”

“There was good simulation, real instruments and a lot of one-on-one instruction. I loved the lab, and I had a great instructor who is also a surgical technician.”
