Centura College – Norfolk Dental Assisting Student Recognized with Achievement Award

Norfolk Dental Assisting Student of the year | Centura College

Urara Pierrelouis – ECC Student of the Year

It takes dedication and a strong passion for dentistry, to overcome the obstacles that one Norfolk Dental Assisting student has.  A native of Japan, Urara Pierrelouis came to the United States six months before she enrolled into the Dental Assistant Program at Centura College in Norfolk, VA.  Her goal was simple, to be able to provide for her three children.

Urara attended every class and always stayed behind to practice skills labs.  Undoubtedly attentive, she took lots of notes.  This Norfolk dental assisting student not only studied her assignments, but actually translated all of the information from English to Japanese.  Her textbook was littered with ‘Post-it-Notes’ that had all the translations.  She excelled at her externship site and went on to graduate maintaining a 4.0 grade point average. …Read More Here

Once I finished school, I became more confident in performing different work assignments and that became apparent to my co-workers and supervisors and sometimes even my patients would comment on my technique and knowledge. …Read More Here
