Starting at a young age I remember coming to class and hearing a few of my peers conversing about how much they despised going to the dentist. As for me, this was not the case as I had always loved going to the dentist; eventually the idea of pursuing it as a career came to mind despite the fact that my parents wanted me to go after nursing first. During my first semester of college, I got the privilege of shadowing a Dental Hygienist. I found this to be a veryfascinating and worthwhile experience, I found it so gratifying that dental hygienist were able to help people in maintaining healthy, clean, beautiful smile no matter what walk of life they came from. My experience helped me figure out that this is something that I really want to do in the future and I have concluded that this is the right career path for me.
