Life-long dream of dentistry dismissed, but restored in less than one month
Our client grew up in a family of dentists and had developed a long-time dream of becoming a dentist as well. Before dental school, he spent time working in his extended family’s dentist office where his desire to pursue dentistry deepened. He chose to attend the alma mater of several members of his family. But by the end of his second year, our client had received three failing grades which led to his dismissal from dentistry school. We encouraged our client to consult with a doctor for a possible diagnosis for an ADA-based disability. After our client received a proper diagnosis and a prescription for the necessary medication, we worked with him to appeal his dismissal. Within less than a month, our client met with the dean of the school and demonstrated his potential to succeed with the right support.
