    I’ve got a sister and she’s a dentist in Sevierville now, she got her degree from UM as well and all of her patients and clients are happy with the kind of service she’s giving I guess that’s one of the perks of being a graduate from UM.

    I know a dentist in Mobile who also graduated from this school and I feel proud that he actually got his degree here.
