“After 12 years as a dental assistant, I knew there was more for me in the dental profession. When I heard Pima Medical was offering a Dental Hygiene program, I jumped at the opportunity. I am a 35-year-old parent of two boys and the thought of quitting my job to attend school was quite daunting, but I forged ahead and was committed. The Dental Hygiene program was an accelerated, challenging opportunity and despite the sweat, tears, countless study sessions, long nights of studying and many other sacrifices, I completed the program and became a Board Certified Registered Dental Hygienist!”
