Having to brush your teeth every day may be such a chore, so why not go and see your dental hygienist? The role of a dental hygienist is to clean your teeth and help keep proper oral health. A hygienist is the male or female you usually see every six months to get a teeth cleaning and x-rays. It is very important to see your dental hygienist every six months because they help keep you healthy. Becoming a dental hygienist may seem like a long road of schooling, but really it’s not.
You are always early and on time and is not always rushing in the office and making a scene. I believe a good dental assistant is someone who wants to learn more and isn’t always checking the time to leave the office. I agree that being initiative and showing that you are there to learn more every day is a good thing. I wouldn’t want to be in a office where I have nothing to do, I prefer always being busy and working with my hands and being a good help to the dentist is the reason I go to school. The patients have our trust to keep their personal records in the office and not outside.

This is because it is crucial to maintain one’s oral health to prevent potential health risks to not only one’s mouth but also their other body parts. The mere thought of being able to take away some else’s pain and make them feel better through dentistry warms me and deepens my passion for this profession even further. This bond and attraction with dentistry has only grown deeper and stronger as I have become older. Observing my brother-in-law and sister when I was in middle school gave me exceptional guidance and motivation into my dream of becoming a dentist. In most of my free time, I would look through the diagrams about dentistry in my brother-in-law 's textbooks.
This past December we decided to move back to Virginia because I knew the Dental Hygiene Program at Old Dominion University was the program I wanted to be part of. I have always enjoyed working with patients whether they are young children or adults. During my years of working chairside, I was able to form bonds with patients and gain their trust. I love helping people, especially when it comes to oral health care. These reasons made me want to further my career from a dental assistant to a dental hygienist.
I make the decision to go to school and try my best because I feel as it’ll only better me and i 'll have a better future. I make decisions that’ll keep me safe and out of trouble because doing otherwise wouldn 't get me where I’m aiming to be later in life. All my parents ask of me is that I end up better than them and it’s only because they care so i 'll do what I have to do to make that happen. Another big part of my culture is respecting your parents, I respect mine. Everything they ask or tell me to do is only to make me a better person and do better
My biggest expectation going into the internship at DFCS was that I would learn more about the social work/social services field and confirm that social work was truly what I wanted to spend my life doing as a career. I also expected to confirm my thought that DFCS was a place I would enjoy working and could see myself working in the future after graduate school. This internship met my personal expectations, however it happened in a way much differently than I expected. While the internship experience did confirm that I love social work and the social services field, it showed me that DFCS is not the agency that I want to work with as a career. I stand behind DFCS 100%; however, I don’t think I could work with DFCS long term.
