Success Stories

Success Stories from ECMO

Dr. Garner graduated from UMKC and has extensive experience in his field.
“Being a 14-year-old having to go to school with broken front teeth caused me self- consciousness. Undergoing successful dental treatment, I developed the desire to pursue a career in dentistry.”

Justin Garner, DDS

Dr. Daniels participated in ACES, ACES+ and will complete AHEC Scholars in 2020 when she graduates from UMKC School of Dentistry. “ECMO AHEC has helped me figure out my career path and gain experience that will prepare me to become a well-rounded practitioner.”
