ONE of the students taking the new Diploma in Health Sciences (Dental Hygiene and Therapy) course is Mohammad Afia Raiyan Iqbal bin Saifulbahrin (pic below).
“I am actually interested in dentistry but my grades weren’t sufficient to take up the dentistry course, so I chose another path and applied for the Diploma in Health Sciences (Dental Hygiene ad Therapy),” he said in an interview. “I am very excited to be the first intake and I am also nervous because I don’t really know what to expect in the course. I hope that I can achieve excellent results in this course.”
Asked about his passion to become a dentist, Mohammad Afia Raiyan Iqbal recalled, “I remember that when I was a kid and I went to the dentist, I felt pleased with the way that my teeth were cleaned by the dentist. Since then I’ve wanted to be a dentist.”
