Success after graduation

During her first year at Baylor College of Dentistry, Julie (Ward ’02) Tuel, D.D.S., felt as though she were simply reviewing some of her biology classes from ACU. While other dental studentsstruggled through the challenging Gross Anatomy course, Julie finished with the highest score in her class.

She had learned all the material in an Anatomy course taught by Charles Mattis, D.D.S., her junior year. She cherished the relationships with her professors at ACU, and now thrives on the ones she builds with her patients in dental school.

Explore where our other ACU graduates have gone into health professional schools by reviewing the acceptances below.
