    It’s really hands-on and the courses teach applied skills that are useful in real, day-to-day life. In one class, I was actually taught how to shake hands properly. It was really cool.

    The connections the teachers provided and the resources they gave us were amazing. CNC has a great reputation in the dental community and many dentists opt to hire CNC grads first.
