From Christina Evans, Amherst Central High School Business Teacher.
Amherst Academies students had an opportunity to visit the Aesthetic Associates Center on November 8th to explore careers in dental medicine and cosmetic surgery. Amherst alumni Dr.Todd Shatkin and Dr. Sam Shatkin along with their staff, hosted the 20 students. The doctors each gave a talk about their careers, the remarkable history about their practice, and showed them examples of their work through pictures.
During a tour of the amazing facility, the students got to see the technology and equipment used and met the staff where they also learned about the many different careers in dental care.
Two hygienists followed up with a lesson and a quiz. Dr. Todd gave away three electric toothbrushes to the students with the best quiz results. Everyone received a complimentary bag containing a toothbrush, paste, floss, lip balm, and more.
After lunch the students headed back to school having had a great experience, learned new things, and truly inspired.
A great big thank you to Dr. Todd and Dr. Sam Shatkin for a phenomenal experience!
