“My experience in the Dental Assisting program at Kingston Learning Centre, not only prepared me for my career; it prepared me for life outside of my career. I gained skills of self-confidence through the interactions with the students as well as our educator, Cindy Coulter. Cindy understood the struggles as I attempted this intense course while trying to be a mother to three small children and she never let me give up. Our hands-on clinic time gave me the confidence to interview almost immediately after our graduation. The lessons were thorough and no question went unanswered.
I have been working in my field now for the last four years. I love what I do and thank KLC for helping me to achieve this life goal. ” Samantha Abbott
