My name is Carlos Hernandez.  I am a senior Dental Hygiene student at CityTech.  A few years ago I left my job in the hopes to find something I truly enjoy. I was lucky enough to land a dental assistant position without having any previous dental experience. As I learned and became more familiar with the dental field I quickly realized that that was my calling.

The journey to becoming a dental hygienist has not been easy and has been a life-changing experience. I am extremely grateful to my supportive husband, my knowledgeable intructors, and the amazing peers I met along the way. This journey has made me a better person, professional, and overall more valuable member of society. As an oral healthcare professional, I hope to change the lives of all my patients and inspire them to maintain optimal oral health.
