"I started the Grossi Institute to provide individuals with a way to achieve a higher level of education without incurring a huge financial burden.  I was so tired of seeing people overpay in an effort to improve themselves or their situation. 

I also knew that I wanted to create “super assistants” so I added implant dentistry, orthodontics, and a customer service piece to the curriculum.  This addition, combined with the low cost, not only helps the individual but the industry, the economy, and our communities as well.

We're all in this together!"
