Academic Advantage Update!
If you have a child in middle school or high school who is interested in pursuing an education that will lead them to a career in health care, the Academic Advantage program is a fantastic opportunity for your family. This year, we held our very first Academic Advantage event, and it was an absolute success! The event was held at NOAH’S Event Venue on Saturday, May 4, where our local rising academic stars were given the opportunity to get a head start on their way to dream careers in the medical and dental fields. Attendees had the chance to enter to win some amazing prizes, including an iPad, a MacBook Pro laptop, gift cards, and much more—plus they were given the opportunity to apply for two Academic Advantage scholarships! Thank you to all the students and their supportive parents, as well as the energetic volunteers, who came together to support this fantastic community event. Our team would also like to extend our gratitude to the gracious leaders from the medical field, local non-profits, and university admissions representatives, who answered student questions and offered their wisdom on college applications and career options. You rock! Finally, many thanks to the following generous sponsors who helped make this event a reality:
- American Fidelity™
- First Citizens Bank®
- Valliance Bank
- 1 Smart Cookie
- Dunkin’ Donuts®
- Patterson Dental®
- Scrubs & Beyond®

At Oral Surgery Specialists of Oklahoma, we’re big on helping out our community, and we are proud to have had the opportunity to award a $750 scholarship and $500 scholarship to two bright students who demonstrated in their essays that they are at the ready to make the very best of their upcoming educational opportunities. Best of luck to you, and don’t forget to keep us posted on your progress!
