123Dentist Awards 15K in Scholarships to Primacorp's Education Division

Thursday, August 12, 2021

123Dentist – a community dentist network – presented a number of completion scholarships to graduates from Primacorp's Education Division, in the Dental Assisting and Dental Receptionist programs, during an awards luncheon on August 9, 2021. $15,000 worth of scholarships were awarded to twelve graduates from Burnaby and Surrey campuses.

“We are tremendously proud to partner with [Primacorp Ventures] and support the growth of their students to accelerate their learning, skills and confidence throughout their academic journey,” says Jennifer Woodrow, Director of Operations, BC. “For 123Dentist, it’s a very positive investment in the dental community, and new graduates and students need that support. It gives me great pleasure to be here today and hand out these scholarships.”

In partnership with Primacorp Ventures, 123Dentist has been awarding one scholarship to every graduating class from Dental Assisting and Dental Receptionist programs since 2017. Scholarships recipients are chosen through a voting system conducted by peers, instructors, and faculty.

“I’m blessed to receive this scholarship – I didn’t know I was going to get picked,” says Marjorie Aure, Dental Assisting program. “I’m planning to continue my education to become a dental hygienist, so I’m planning to use the scholarship towards my tuition.”

123Dentist also provides a number of practicum placements for current students, and hires copious amounts of Primacorp's Education Division graduates in the fields of dental assisting and dental reception.

“Giving back to communities where we live and work, supporting the advancement of our dental industry and future leaders is an important part of the culture at 123Dentist,” says Woodrow. “When I go in to meet a class, I’m able to promise them a practicum placement – if they don’t already have one. [123Dentist] offers that help as we’re able to put them in a position where they can get the training and education they need as a new student.”
