Hello! My name is Amanda Vera. I was born and raised in Long Island, New York.

I am currently a dental hygiene student at New York City College of Technology and I anticipate on graduating this upcoming May of 2018. For the past six years, I have had an life changing opportunity to be exposed to dentistry as a dental assistant . Being a dental assistant, I fell in love with the dental field and I decided I wanted to pursue the next stop along my career path.

I applied to the Dental Hygiene Program in 2016, and I must say its been a 2 year long road filled with sacrifices, dedication, and fulfilling accomplishments that I have always dreamed of.  Through the eye opening clinical experiences, volunteerism, and challenging courses, I have learned that a career in Dental Hygiene is not just about “cleaning” teeth. With the unconditional support of my family, friends, colleagues, and faculty, I was able to complete this awarding program and will continue to do so. My ePortfolio is a candid snapshot of my journey throughout these unforgettable years.
