Recently we spoke with Mandi Knight, 2012 Dental Assistant graduate and current employee at Armanini, Kolodychak, & Basille LLC in Erie Pennsylvania.
What do you like about your career?
MK: "I enjoy the continued education and everyday learning with the dental field. Branching off into a specialty office was the best fit for myself. I have been doing oral surgery now for 4 years and it has been a wonderful experience. I was hired right out of my externship and I appreciate joining an office full of such friendly and well educated Doctors and co-workers!"
Why do you believe your training at GLIT prepared you for your career?
MK: "GLIT prepared me for my career because when I attended school, the student to teacher ratio was kept low and you had a lot of one on one. I also appreciated the fact that everything was hands on."
What are your Future Plans/Goals?
MK: "I look forward to continuing to grow with the dental field and the office I'm with. I'm excited to see where it takes me!"
What do you like to do in your spare time?
MK: "In my spare time, I play on an adult volleyball league, and love being outside. I also have a 3 year old lab that loves his walks!"
