123Dentist Awards 15K in Scholarships to CDI College Dental Graduates

BURNABY, BC, Aug. 12, 2021 /CNW/ - 123Dentist ? a community dentist network ? presented a number of completion scholarships to CDI College graduates from the Dental Assisting and Dental Receptionist programs during an awards luncheon on August 9, 2021. $15,000 worth of scholarships were awarded to twelve CDI College graduates from Burnaby and Surrey campuses.

"We are tremendously proud to partner with and support the growth of CDI College and its students to accelerate their learning, skills and confidence throughout their academic journey," says Jennifer Woodrow, Director of Operations, BC. "For 123Dentist, it's a very positive investment in the dental community, and new graduates and students need that support. It gives me great pleasure to be here today and hand out these scholarships."

In partnership with CDI College, 123Dentist has been awarding one scholarship to every graduating class from Dental Assisting and Dental Receptionist programs since 2017. Scholarships recipients are chosen through a voting system conducted by peers, instructors, and faculty.

"I'm blessed to receive this scholarship ? I didn't know I was going to get picked," says Marjorie Aure, Dental Assisting program. "I'm planning to continue my education to become a dental hygienist, so I'm planning to use the scholarship towards my tuition."

123Dentist also provides a number of practicum placements for CDI College students, and hires copious amounts of CDI College graduates in the fields of dental assisting and dental reception.

"Giving back to communities where we live and work, supporting the advancement of our dental industry and future leaders is an important part of the culture at 123Dentist," says Woodrow. "When I go in to meet a class, I'm able to promise them a practicum placement ? if they don't already have one. [123Dentist] offers that help as we're able to put them in a position where they can get the training and education they need as a new student."
