Hello Everyone! My name is Tatiana Shchedrina and I am currently finishing up dental hygiene school and getting ready to graduate and begin my career. I was born in Russia where I graduated high school and university. I moved to the United States nine years ago and it took a long time for me to decide what I want to do. I wasn’t always sure of what I wanted to do for my career but I always knew I wanted to help others. Being able to help others and have an impact on their lives is important to me. I was afraid of dentists and maybe that is why I chose this career to overcome my fears. I am looking forward to using my skills and education from all of my professors to influence and improve the lives of my patients.
