After high school I really did not know what I wanted to do, I just knew I did not want to work a job with no room to advance.Growing up in Southern California, all my friends went to the same Dentist, and they all recommended the same Dental Office. So I went to my Dental appointment and for some reason became very curious about dentistry as well as about what everyone’s functions in a dental practice were, which I had never been curious about in previous appointments.
I began asking questions and was invited to shadow the staff. I became more and more interested and found I really liked dentistry. Eventually I was offered a job and wanted to get certifications so I attended courses at East Los Angeles Occupational Center and this is what I have been doing ever since.
