My Major

My intended major is Dental Hygiene, but I have to apply for it during my sophomore year. I came to ODU for it’s Dental Hygiene Program!! I chose this major because dental healthcare workers changed my life. I grew up hating my smile and when I got braces I started feeling more confident. Once my braces came off I knew that I wanted to help someone else feel the way I did at that moment. I also believe that I will excel in Dental Hygiene because I’m passionate about it, I have a personal connection to this job and I’m grateful for it. I currently don’t have any experience in this field, but I do plan on mentoring this summer at a dental office.
