"It’s an incredible honour to receive the Academic Excellence Award. It will allow me to work at an established dental office within the dentalcorp network so I can start my career on a great path. Also, having my tuition reimbursed helps eliminate much of my student debt, allowing me to start saving towards my future goals much more quickly than expected. I look forward to working in a paediatric dental office where I plan to obtain further education in orthodontic and/or restorative courses. After gaining clinical experience, I plan to use it to become a dental hygiene educator."
"I am very grateful to have received this award, although I couldn’t have done it without the support of my teachers, friends and family. It’s wonderful to be recognized for all my hard work, and it is such a great opportunity to be able to start my career with dentalcorp. I am very excited to be able to assist people with their oral health. I hope to further my knowledge by going into the orthodontics specialty in the future. "

"This achievement affirms my passion and dedication to the dental hygiene profession. This tremendous financial support will allow me to focus on my career, and I am thrilled to start it with the dentalcorp family. As I strengthen my knowledge and skills in clinical practice, I will continue to advocate for equity and increased access to oral care for underprivileged communities.
