Jackelina's Thoughts on Howard College

Why Howard College?
I went to a small high school and choosing Howard College made it a more comfortable transition.  Also, they offered a degree in Dental Hygiene and it was the closest college from home.

Why Dental Hygiene?
I have always loved going to the dentist and been fascinated with all the equipment.  I just knew that I had to choose a career that involved teeth.

Career Goals
I plan to get my license in Dental Hygiene and maybe in the future I will go back to school to get my bachelor's degree.

Favorite Professor
My favorite instructors are Mrs. Buske and Mrs. Farmer.
