ODAA 2022 Student Achievement Award Recipients
This year, Mary Harrison, ODAA’s Vice President was able to present the award at PCC.
Her report as follows:
“It was my pleasure to present this award to Andrea Cole at Portland Community College. The students gathered for their last time together with instructions on getting their EFDA, EFODA and RHS certificates. They were encouraged to hand in or donate any supplies to the school to help other students.
I did take a few minutes to encourage membership, gathering with other dental assistants, and to continue learning. All assistants should know and be familiar with the Dental Practice Act, to know and understand what they may or may not do in the dental office.
ODAA represents dental assistants at the Oregon Board of Dentistry and the Oregon Dental Association. I shared that ODAA is available if they have questions or need help, and we are here for them.
I also encouraged continuing education and any certificates that are made available for dental assistants. Also, my usual saying…..’You need to do the best thing you can for yourself, you’re the only one that can.”
