I attended college for the IODA program, and finished in September, 2014. I recently started my placement with the Peterborough Dental Health Unit. During my time at college I had a rough time managing home issues and school and didn’t know if I was going to be able to finish. I want to thank my instructor, Sandra Mann, who gave me confidence and pushed me to do what I thought I couldn’t do. The staff was amazing and helped me through so much more than just getting my education, like how to keep a positive upbeat attitude while I was in school. I started my placement September 15 and I love it!
I felt I was very well prepared and super excited. I fit right in working with tools and patients and it felt so natural, all thanks to Sandra. We were not always an easy class, and I wasn’t always an easy student but Sandra was there every day with a smile on her face ready to teach us. It is thanks to her that I have become the person/Dental Assistant that I am today.
