Why did you choose the Dental Hygienist program?

I chose to study in this field because I want to one day be able to provide easy access to people in need of dental care. I also chose this field so that I may educate others on the importance of proper oral care.

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

Being in the dental field has taught me to pay attention to details, adapt to new information, and utilize my resources, such as my instructors. The staff in the Dental Hygiene program really go to great lengths to make sure that every student achieves greatness and is well prepared for the field in the real world.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?

The biggest reason why I chose FVTC is because the programs offered at FVTC give students hands-on experience, which better prepares them for the career of their choice. I also chose FVTC because it has one of the best Dental Hygiene programs in the area, is affordable, and it works around my schedule.

How did Fox Valley Technical College help you change your life?

Fox Valley Technical College has helped me see the value and importance of an education. FVTC has pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me gain new experiences. It has also given me the opportunity to become more open-minded by engaging in activities with students of different backgrounds.

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

After graduating from Fox Valley Technical College, I would like to get work experience as a dental hygienist. I also plan on pursuing my Bachelors in Biology at UW-Oshkosh. My hope is that these stepping stones will provide me with the knowledge I need to attend dental school.
