Congratulations and welcome to Ms. May De Guzman, who is the newest member of the Board of Assessors (BOA).
The College is very fortunate to hire this fabulous dental hygienist who has a varied background in the dental field as a dental assistant and as a clinical dental hygienist. Ms. De Guzman will be a definite asset to this important committee. May started in the dental field as a dental assistant in 2001. She enjoyed working with people and helping other’s achieve confidence through their smile. She loved the team aspect of a dental office and how each facet relied on the other in order to function. May was encouraged by a dentist to go back to school and after some thought, took on the challenge. She was accepted into University of Manitoba’s School of Dental Hygiene and graduated in 2006. May is currently working part time as a dental hygienist and when she is not working she is enjoying raising her 3 beautiful children.
With the guidance and mentorship of our experienced BOA’s, Ms. Janis Gojda, Ms. Kristin Holt and Ms. Natasha Kravtsov a BOA orientation session will be held for Ms. De Guzman shortly.
At this time I would like to personally thank all of the Board of Assessors who have made a strong commitment to their Regulatory Body, specifically Ms. Lila Jorheim MacInnes who has now completed her term with the Board of Assessors. Ms. MacInnes has been a Board of Assessor since the creation of the CDHM. She has worked tirelessly in this role and I cannot thank her enough for her passion and commitment to the CDHM.
