For many people, becoming a Dental Assistant is something they’ve always wanted to do, and for some, they enter the program not quite sure what to expect. Then there are people like Ciera Tamayo. Ciera was thinking about a career change, drove by our Colorado Springs Campus and stopped in. After just a week, she was enrolled and starting classes, and the rest as they say, is history.
In honor of Dental Assistant Appreciation week, we want you to hear her story, in her own words. Are you thinking of a career change? Is a medical career something you’ve considered? After you read her story, we think you’ll be equally as inspired as us. So, check out our programs and see what a rewarding career in the healthcare field can do for you!
“I was thinking about making a career change. As I was driving past Pima Medical Institute I decided to stop and get some information. Within one week I had signed up and started a program I knew nothing about! I started my classes for dental assisting and knew I was in exactly the right spot. It was challenging and yet fun. I loved school so much; I didn't really want to leave when I finished my program.
I was placed in a very busy office for my externship and it prepared me for my new career. I'm so thankful for my job and I love coming to work every day. I'm happy, content, busy and proud of what I have achieved.
I appreciated my instructors. They not only taught me everything I needed to know about the dental field, they taught me about internal strength and helped me grow.
I'm so grateful I stopped at PMI that day. It's amazing to think that just one year later, I have a whole new career and life!
Could your story be next?
