"My program is pretty cool. I have professors that care about my, and others, performance, attendance, and overall education. Most of the classes are interesting, and if they aren't, professors try their best to make the classes appealing to their students. I cannot wait to finish my program and take what I know to the field."

"Do not judge every Fortis by what you read because where I went (Richmond, Va) was great for dental assisting. It has CODA accreditation and the instructors know their stuff. I was nervous but prepared for my extern and even got hired making good money and PASSED my CDA. I am glad I went there and had the instructors I did, they really help you learn the material and help you with personal stuff too. They really care. THANK YOU for everything! (Richmond, Va)"

"DON'T GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!!They all about money. Teachers don't know the material they're teaching. They talk and teach you like your in high school. Teachers always leaving their room for minutes at a time when they suppose to be teaching. They have the same three teachers teaching three different subjects. Teachers only been in there field for 5 years and teaching classes. You credits DO NOT transfer to any another colleges. Your better off going to a four or a two year college. I would not recommend this college to anyone else."

"I am the parent of a graduate. First, the college is extremely overpriced for the education received.Second, professors and deans do not respond to calls, texts, emails or communicate when contacted without multiple efforts which may or may not result in a response.Finally, gainful employment is very difficult with a fortis certificate."

"I went to Fortis College Phoenix for Dental Assisting and it truly changed my life. I am now attending for Dental Hygiene 5 years later. It gave me direction when I didn't have any. Class sizes are small and staff truly cares. Some teachers can be a little frustrating with lack of organization or aloofness if you will, but the majority have priceless experience and knowledge of the field. Would recommend!! Only you can change your life."

"I went to this school thinking that I would have a good trade under my belt. The classes we're hit or miss. Either the teacher knew what she was talking about, you got a teacher that taught from a book, or you got a completely unnecessary class. My director Mr. Martin Freel, lied to my employer, told him that I did not come to school, on a day he (freel) demanded I come or I'd fail my externship. Now I'm finding out today ( 2/9/16) I paid tuition from a school " learning from their mistakes", no radiology certification, no guidance of where to certify, and no job to start with ( I found a job by MYSELF a YEAR later). They took my money and gave my NOTHING. Not even some type of refund for what I didn't learn that they now offer. I was recommended to retake the whole thing over, for another 11 months. I have a husband, a job, and my parents to care for! I don't have time to do it over. I'm not sure on how much has "changed" but im not going through it anymore! Thank you fortis in landover for practicing on me, you will NEVER do it again."

"Don't not recommend this school at all. The teacher is horrible. Spring told the class if she was a serial killer I would be her first victim. Then they was to charge me 5000 out of pocket because they wouldn't let me come because of finicale situations."

"I LOVED THIS SCHOOL! I learned a lot from the instructors. I loved that we did a lot of hands on. I'm going back for the dental hygiene program. I would & have recommended this school to family & friends. Any school you're going to have your ups & downs & yes the staff can be shitty at times but they are always willing to help you. But I wouldn't care I was going to get mines regardless. Potential employers love Fortis graduates because we aren't just dental assistants we're expanded functions & Fortis is accredited. I can't wait to start the dental hygiene program!"
