The doctors at Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons know how important it is to give children an opportunity to explore their options and cultivate their interests to build the confidence needed to pursue their goals. It is not uncommon for students to feel as though they don’t have the support, guidance, or knowledge of the academic requirements necessary to pursue a career in healthcare. They may feel overwhelmed by the educational requirements or training it takes to become a doctor, or they may have an interest in becoming a doctor and need some more information to create the best educational path for them. That is why Drs. Lieblick and Rehrer decided to offer educational sessions through the Beacon Academic Advantage program.
