"I’m from Ladysmith, and I choose to go to VIU and enter the Dental Assistant Program because my mom went through the program and got taught by the same teachers. I always loved being in an orthodontic office growing up. I like the idea of patient care and having a career that is busy and having the opportunity to expand into many other things."
