What is the Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery Academic Advantage program?
Is your child interested in pursuing a dental or medical career? If so, the Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery Academic Advantage program is the perfect opportunity for you and your child to learn more about what it takes to accomplish a career in medicine. Our program brings together several professionals, from doctors, dentists, and oral surgeons to high school counselors, and representatives from local colleges and volunteer organizations. For such a competitive industry, we want to give students a leg up on the competition and help them determine their best career path. This is our second annual session – the first was a huge hit and we were able to help many local students!
At Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery, we believe that it is never too early to start preparing for your future and pursuing your dreams. Our Academic Advantage program specifically targets middle school and high school students so that children can gain the insight and support needed to succeed early on. If your child is between the ages of 12 and 18 or in grades 6–12, then the Academic Advantage program is a perfect opportunity for them. We encourage you to RSVP for our upcoming session!
