Gabe Hershman, DDS: Putting Me on the Right Path
“What LCM offers over other institutions is that they're big enough to get you where you need to go, but small enough to hold your hand while they do it.”
Gabe Hershman, DDS, could have chosen a number of undergraduate colleges to prepare for dental school. But he chose Lander College for Men (LCM).
Why? The smaller classes allowed for special attention to make sure he grasped the material and excelled, while “many of my friends in other institutions were struggling, because they felt they were left behind.”
Thanks to his stellar academic achievements at LCM, Gabe was admitted to NYU College of Dentistry—and was granted a full scholarship. After successfully graduating from dental school, he continued on to NYU College of Medicine to pursue oral and maxillofacial surgery. The ’04 alum now works as an oral surgeon at a private practice in Brooklyn.
“A boy from LCM was able to stand up for himself and set himself apart academically in front of a large class,” he says.
This is Dr. Gabriel Hershman’s story.
