"My wife, Roszalita, was a Dental Surgery Assistant (DSA) student at National Dental Centre Singapore (NDCS) when we got married. I witnessed how she not only excelled in her training but also the work that came after. Her dedication hadn't gone unnoticed as she was singled out by her then-doctor to join him in private practice. It was an exciting time of her career as they set up the clinic and then worked together for many years. Her career took a pause when our family needs evolved but when it was time to rejoin the workforce, she joined NDCS again. She is now a Senior DSA with Sengkang General Hospital. While this is not my story per se, I'm proud that my wife is the inspiration behind my decision to join healthcare.”
