Why did you choose the Dental Assistant and Dental Hygienist programs?

I chose the dental field because growing up, my parents did not address the importance of oral hygiene. I want to be able to gain background knowledge to teach others how important it is to brush, floss and maintain their oral health.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?

What I find rewarding is applying what I’ve been taught in class while I’m working in a dental office. It is always a rewarding feeling when the patients leave the clinic smiling and happy, and thanking you for the work. 

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?

I chose Fox Valley Technical College because I heard that the college has a great dental program. Graduates leave the college with adequate knowledge and experience. Fox Valley Tech has shown me that I have the knowledge and skills to become a successful student. The college has motivated me to use my capabilities to achieve my goals.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?

I would love to find a job where I can apply my expertise to make others happy and confident with their smile. I would also like to educate people on the importance of oral hygiene.
