Nicola has extensive experience working in all aspects of the dental profession. She has been a chairside/EDDA assistant for both general and prosthodontic practices. In addition she has been a national/branch software trainer for a dental supply company. She was Program Assistant as well as digital radiography lab instructor at LCCC Hygiene Program in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Teaching Philosophy
I feel that in order for teaching to be successful students must first feel “comfortable” with the “uncomfortableness” of the learning experience. By creating a foundation of open communication, ongoing acceptance, and clear expectations I can help students to avoid many of the overwhelming experiences associated with the learning process. When we respect an individual’s past we can help them shape and understand their future.
