I chose Ohio Valley College of Technology because I heard many great things –you can finish your degree in 16 months and it had a high job placement rate. After coming to visit OVCT and viewing the smaller classroom setting and hands-on laboratory, I knew this is where I would want to take that next step in improving my future.
I chose the Dental Assisting Program because I have always had an interest in dental health. To be able to improve the confidence in others, starting with their smile, has always been something I have wanted to do.
My favorite part about attending OVCT is the hands on experience in the dental lab. I not only learned how to take impressions but I also was taught how to take an x-ray. I also enjoyed that the instructor took time to work with me one on one.
After completing my 135 extern hours at an Orthodontic office, I was offered a full time position as a Dental Assistant with a chance to further my credentials in the dental field.
For future students at OVCT, I would just like to say believe in yourself and follow your dreams, because in the end it is so rewarding to have accomplished what you set out to do!
I would like to thank the Dental Director, Jamie Stine, for going out of her way to make sure I understood everything I need to know. She made sure she placed me in an office that I would fit in and that I could further my dental knowledge and experience. Thank you so very much for all that you have done for me!
I would say my biggest supporters would have to be my family and friends. Every day they told me how proud they were of me and the accomplishments that I have made.
