My undergraduate experience at Montana Tech has and will continue to help me thrive in both professional and personal endeavors. I am currently in my third year of dental school at the Arizona School of Dentistry of Oral Health, and the quality education that I received at Tech has been instrumental to my success. In addition, I had the opportunity to have hands-on lab experience and build life-long personal and professional relationships with faculty and peers. Thank you Montana Tech!" -- Jonna VanDaveer
