Graduated Student Success!
Steven Rusingiza graduated from Borah High School and DTEC in 2017. After exploring a few different careers within the medical field, he decided that dentistry was most appealing to him. Not knowing what to expect, he signed up for Ms. Maxfield's Dental Assisting course at DTEC during his senior year. Once he was in the program, he knew he made the right choice.
Steven shares, "The program overall was very beneficial. It made me realize dentistry was the right career for me through the different [job] shadowing opportunities. Also, it provided me with a great instructor, Ms. Maxfield, who gave me an understanding of what it takes to become a dentist. The class also allowed me to have hands-on experience, learning different techniques and practicing them."
Steven recently came and volunteered in the Dental Assisting class, which was an excellent opportunity for our current students. Steven is now a junior at Boise State University studying Health Sciences and will be applying to dental schools in the summer of 2021. Steven credits his opportunity at DTEC on playing a big role in getting him on track to his career. Best of luck to Steven as he pursues his dreams!
