Erika Findlay is very content these days. The determined twenty-three year old has settled into a full-time Dental Hygienist role in a Saskatoon, Saskatchewan clinic with a mainly aboriginal clientele. Erika says her new job is a�?rewarding in many ways and personally gratifyinga�?, and that the Dental Hygiene Diploma program she completed at The Canadian Academy of Dental Hygiene in Mississauga, Ontario, prepared her well for the workplace.
It was Erikaa��s first time living away from home and she basically took a leap of faith. She had heard admirable things about CADH from a couple of graduates she knew in Saskatoon, as well as a family friend on the Saskatchewan Board of Dental Hygiene who inspired her to follow her dream and apply. Despite her apprehension, she did just that. Upon being accepted into her only choice of school, she prepared herself for her adventure, including blindly renting an apartment online in an unknown area.
Less than two years later, Erika graduates, returning to her home town and finding a full-time Dental Hygiene position within six months. She looks back on her training at CADH and says that the program was a�?dense and difficulta�?.
