Back in May I was accepted into the Red Cross Dental Assisting Program on post. Classes started beginning of September. At first I thought, what did I get myself into.. Basically a years worth of education crammed into 6 weeks of class. Currently I am learning the hands on part of Dental Assistant training program on a military post. I love it. I love the challenge of taking a patient that has huge dental fears and calming them with my chatty personality. I still have so much to learn, but I am loving every minute of it. I have helped assist with restorations and Oral Surgery=(extractions).. I am finally working towards completion of a dream that I had left behind as a young woman in high school. I am 48 years old. I hope to set the example that its never too late to achieve a dream.. even if its been filed on the back shelf covered with dust.
If you still dream of it. Dust that dream off and give it a polish and let it shine... There are no age limits to dreams..
