It was nice to be able to get a feel of what it was like to work in a dental office


Hi, my name is name is Enica Sumague. This year, I decided to take a step into the Government Funded Certified Dental Assisting program. When I was first informed about this course, I found it hard to believe that it was free. As a person who was unsure about what I wanted to do as my future career, I took this chance to try something new. 

Throughout the different courses, I struggled with the pace we were learning at first, but with enough effort and work put into my learning alongside the help and support of our teacher, I managed to make it through the courses. I am also grateful for the time we got in our clinic days.  It was enough time for us to learn and practice our skills, allowing us to perform the skills learned in practicum.  It was nice to be able to get a feel of what it was like to work in a dental office.

With friends and and classmates, it was much easier to cope with the struggles I had because they understood what I was going through, they were able to empathize with what I was feeling because they were also going through the same. As this was my first time in college, I really appreciated the Discovery Community College (DCC) staff for being so kind and understanding with anything I needed help with. I found the staff to be approachable, and as introverted person, it helped me open up to them with anything I needed help with. I gained a lot of knowledge about dental health, which will help me throughout my daily life.
