Restorative Dentistry

Hi everyone, this is my first semester in New York City College of Technology. I graduated from La Guardia Community College with an Associate in Science. I was always interested in focusing in a career where science will always be part of my everyday routine. My option was just so many, so I did an internship in a dental clinic. My experience was worthy. I realized I should stick to dentistry. With my three years of art experience. I looked into Dental technician and I loved what I read. I knew it was a good way to get started into the dentistry business. After a few months I got hired as a dental assistant at the dental clinic and I now am part of the Restorative Dentistry Program.
