Meet Alison Peterson: Future Dental Hygienist
“I am really excited to attend college and am looking forward to pursuing my goal of becoming a dental hygienist. I love learning, and plan on becoming the best hygienist possible. Another goal of mine is to be able to be part of a dental humanitarian group and go to different parts of the world to serve others and teach them. I have always had a passion for science and the way that it helps you think in different ways.
“I am currently [participating] in a CTE Internship at a local dentist office in our city. I have loved everything about it. It has taught me a lot about how the office functions and about the daily routine of a hygienist. It has been really fun getting to know patients and [providing] them a service. By taking CTE courses I have learned about good jobs skills.”
