Our Story

How Our Dental Assistant Program Started

With a continued overwhelming response from the dental community at DOT Indianapolis, Lynn felt inspired to pursue opening another location.  Nadine’s relocation to the Fort Myers area provided the perfect opportunity!  Lynn’s belief that the core essentials to success are connecting a qualified staff with integrity, determination and simply love for their profession. Lynn wanted to stay authentic to the integral part of the program. Lynn and Nadine joined together to create DOT2South in Ft. Myers, Florida.

After a year of planning and gathering approvals through the Florida Board of Dentistry and Commission on Independent Education we have now built a state-of-the-art facility ready for operation. We are excited to announce open enrollment and look forward to meeting our new students and dental community!
