“I had an amazing experience on my rotation and improved my clinical skills. My site was in my home community, so I really enjoyed helping those individuals reach happy and healthy smiles.”

What made you want to earn your BSDH degree?

I wanted to help patients achieve a happy, healthy smile, and I love being able to help the community.  Dental hygiene plays a big role in helping others.

Did you have a favorite part of your program? What and why?

My favorite part of dental hygiene was the six-week rural rotation.  Rural rotation is typically held during the summer before senior year.  The class of 2021 was a little different because of COVID-19, so we had to complete the six-week rotation during September through October.  I had an amazing experience on my rotation and improved my clinical skills.  My site was in my home community, so I really enjoyed helping those individuals reach happy and healthy smiles.

What are you excited for next?

I am extremely excited to go back to my rural rotation site, in my home community, to work as a hygienist.
