DATC Session 10 | The BIG Day is here!!!

The BIG Day is HERE!!!

On Saturday, May 31st our BIG Day FINALLY ARRIVES!!!  This is our final class and then we are on to DATC Session 10 Graduation at the Graham Civic Center.  Our final day as Dental Assistant Students will consist of Mock Job Interviews with Dr. Barwick, Resume review with a local HR Professional and presentations from a couple of former DATC Graduates who are now working in specialty offices. It will be a very busy day, but one well worth the wait.  We have come a long way and are all looking forward to Graduation. 

No matter if you have formal interview experience or not, having the opportunity to practice our interview skills with Dr. Barwick is an opportunity you cannot pass up and then add to the experience that DATC gives students the chance to have our resumes and cover letters critiqued by a local Human Resources professional.  Both of these services are part of what DATC offers every student to insure each and every one is ready to find the right opportunity for them in the dental field. 

After a full day of learning to market ourselves and our new found skills we head off to graduation and to celebrate with our instructors, peers, friends and family.  We have each worked hard during this 12 Saturday class, not only in class but out of class and we all have so much to be proud of. 

We each voted on our Class Superlatives so we are all anxious to see who will be awarded for Highest Clinical Competency, Professionalism, Intellectualism, Most Dedicated, Most Committed, Best Attitude and several other areas as well.

Yes it sounds like a A LOT and it was A LOT, but We've Got This and Our Big Day is Here.  We are all ready for this next chapter in our lives to begin and are ready to start a new career in Dentistry.
