Dental School Applicant Testimonials

“As a dental school applicant, I was unsure about hiring a consultant who is a medical doctor. I researched many services and had several free introductory phone consultations. Other franchised companies were too mechanical and all about the numbers. However, after 20 minutes with Dr. Eaton, I felt most comfortable sharing my story with her. Even as an M.D., she has vast experience with dental students. As a re-applicant, Dr. Eaton corrected many flaws in my AADSAS application. She helped me collect my thoughts and share my story in a concise, well written personal statement. She was very knowledgeable upon the schools that I should be applying. Upon her recommendations, I interviewed at 4 schools, whereas the previous year I didn’t get any interviews. Prior to the interviews, I had mock interviews which helped my confidence tremendously. The school that I’m attending this fall was not even on my radar initially. I’m so happy that Dr. Eaton recommended this school because it’s a perfect fit for me. Regardless of who you choose, there should be a level of trust and comfort with your consultant. I trusted Dr. Eaton with my educational career, and I thank her for expert advice. I highly recommend her.”

“My husband and I want to thank you for all the help you lent our daughter. You recommended the post-bac program, you encouraged her to re-take the DAT. In fact, she said you recommended the school she has recently been accepted to when it was not on her list of schools to apply. … we’re just glad she has a school to go to this coming September (and a very good one). … If she’s invited to other interviews, she will continue to go. And if she doesn’t, she’s just as happy.”

-A.K., Parent of a Dental School Applicant


“Carleen was an absolutely terrific coach and advisor during my application and interviewing process to dental school. She guided me through the application, helped me choose the best match for dental schools, and gave me a clear and concise picture of what I can expect during my interviews. I was accepted to just about every school to which I applied and happily my first choice for the fall class of 2013. I would be happy to speak to anyone personally regarding Carleen’s consultation services.”

-Alex F., Dental School Applicant


“I’m so grateful for your help with my interview preparation! Your strong knowledge of the admission process helped me understand about dental school interview process. You taught me how to present myself, what my strengths are and what gaps I have to fill in making myself stand out. Thank you for being available whenever I needed your help and taking very seriously every little question that I asked. Everything that you have taught me helped a lot to reach my goal and as a result I was accepted to Dental School of my dreams!”

-M.K., Dental School Applicant


“Being a nontraditional applicant, my situation was a bit unique. While my university advisers were as helpful as they could be, they simply weren’t able to advise me on certain aspects of my application strategy. Dr. Eaton was excellent in this regard. It was obvious that she has a great deal of experience with the admissions process, and she was not afraid to give definitive and realistic advice on some major decisions that some other advisers seemed afraid to confront. I always felt she was committing a fair amount of time and consideration to my case and not rushing me through in any way, and she also provided some much appreciated encouragement at times when the application process got difficult. It’s been a long process but I’m happy to say that I’ve been accepted to three dental schools so far. I’m incredibly excited to start, and I couldn’t have done it without Dr. Eaton. Thank you!”

-Andrew, Dental School Applicant
