Hi my name is Kristen Adams. After having a successful career in the hospitality industry, I was ready for a change. I wasn’t sure where my new path would take me, but I shortly found myself with a new opportunity in front of me. I was offered, hired, and trained as a dental assistant in what felt like a blink of an eye. I loved my new career more and more as the days turned into months and then years. I found myself wanting to broaden my horizons and my education in dentistry. That is how I found the dental hygiene program at NYCCT. Even though it was the most challenging thing I have ever done it has also been rewarding at the same time. As I am about to receive my degree in less then a month my e portfolio shows a glimpse of what the past 2 years has afforded me.
