Student, Kitchener, ON - 19 September 2016
My typical day at school would be arriving at 7:45 am for class at 8 am. We would usually start off in the classroom for theory but as the course went on and we were almost near the end the more clinic we did and the less class time we had. Clinic is where we would learn all of our hands on procedures, infection control, radiographs, working on dexter & eachother. Then we went to the University of Toronto for a week where it was more hands on but with real patients, after that we had to bring 8 clients in to our school where we would have to do soft tissue, charting, impressions, OHE, polishing, desensitizing, fluoride, mouthguards, bleaching trays, ect, then we moved on to our externship where I completed 150 hours in a dental offices doing everyday regular dental duties, (more on my resume) We were a big class but we were more of a big teamwork group, always helping eachother. The hardest part about everything was just trying to get to the finish line honestly, I wasn't an organized individual but I am now, I have to have everything neat and organized. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be being able to help others out, and their health, I like seeing others smiling. And helping the public is what I love to do and would like the opportunity to do it for the rest of my life.
