"Being a former student of the Oral Rehabilitation Specialization at USFQ has been a very pleasant experience, not only during the time I was part of the university, but the application of all knowledge in the workplace. During my time at the university, a little over 2 years, I learned a lot about dentistry, and also of respect and trust from my professors. Working and valuing each member of the work team, their time and effort, is something I learned in my study time. I have fond memories of my professors and colleagues, especially my specialty's coordinator, Dr. Nancy Mena, who knew how to give her best with great seriousness and responsibility, so that we can all have the same possibilities, opportunities, and responsibilities. Today I have the joy of working with Nancy as a specialist and continue learning from my professor, in addition to being able to develop my skills and knowledge along with her experience. Being able to study at the University of San Francisco de Quito opened up many job opportunities for me, now I am a professor at another university, always carrying with me the USFQ name, the dental school, and all who are part of it.”
