Content provided by Vivian Zabik, RDH, Certified DEXIS Instructor: I have been in dentistry since I was 16 years old. My high school started a two-year dental assisting program with a neighboring school. I was always adventurous, so I convinced my best friend to sign up for the program with me. I told her, Im sure the guys are really cute at this school, especially since its so close to Kent State University! She looked at me like I was crazy and said, Is this going to be like the time you suggested we take a public bus home from school and ended up on other side of town? I can still hear her mother lecturing us in broken Polish-English on the long drive home!
