Mentor Advice ForumFurthering My Career in Dental Hygiene
AvatarChristine Boulay asked 1 month ago

Hello,
 My name is Christine Boulay.  I am a student at SUNY Farmingdale in the BS degree program.  I am interested in learning more about the research side of dental hygiene.  I read your Q & A and was amused that you described being in research as a treasure hunt.  I loved this analogy!  I feel that I’m a very curious person and with that spark for knowledge research may be the direction I head to after graduation.
I also enjoyed reading that you had opportunities arise over the course of your hygiene career that you felt motivated to not pass up.  My question to you is:
Do you feel that there were opportunities during your dental hygiene career that you did pass up but wished you didn’t?  What did you learn from not making that choice?  Do you have any regrets from not making that choice?
Thank you very much for your time!
