Welcome to the 2010 Dental Assisting Remembrance Presentation.  Each year a Recognition Ceremony is held at the conclusion of the Dental Assisting Program to celebrate the accomplishments of the DA students with their families and friends.  Gary Jacobs composes the Remembrance Presentation and shows it during the Recognition Ceremony so that the students’ experiences can be shared with those in attendance.  The Presentation is a collection of photos taken throughout the 10 month certificate program.  Mr. Jacobs tries to capture candid photos in his lectures, labs, clinical settings, and  at community/professional events. The dental assistant graduates are given a copy of the Remembrance Presentation as a memento of their achievements at Tunxis. Please enjoy the presentation.
