Carter's story

 

“More Smiles Wisconsin has had a great impact on my life. As a high school student participating in the Youth Apprenticeship Program they took me under their wing and were very patient with me throughout my year of working together with them. All the employees and volunteers created a positive work environment where I was able to learn everything I currently know about dentistry. Throughout this experience my passion for dentistry has only grown as I have become more familiar with the dental setting and serving patients, as well as how to be more caring and compassionate in a professional setting. I would like to thank More Smiles Wisconsin, all the staff and volunteers who have welcomed me as part of their team and pushed me toward the right direction in my further education.”
