Congratulations to the B.S./M.S. Dual Degree Clinical Dental Hygiene Leader (CDHL) MDCHA Dental Hygienists' Association Scholarship winners at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, Universities at Shady Grove!
She has lived in Maryland her whole life. Carly grew up in Catonsville and Ellicott City and currently resides in Carroll county with her family. Prior to being a part of the CDHL program, she attended Mount St. Mary's University where she obtained her bachelor's degree in health sciences. At Mount St. Mary's she was also a team captain on the Division I women's lacrosse team. During her undergraduate education, she decided to explore different health care fields. She worked at a dental office as a sterilization assistant when she was home for summer and winter breaks. This experience contributed in her interest in pursuing a dental hygiene career and ultimately applying for the CDHL program at University of Maryland Baltimore.
Paige was born and raised in Calvert County, MD. Calvert is one of 3 counties that make up Southern Maryland – a place that she calls home to this day. Science has always been her favorite subject. In 2013, she earned a BS in animal science from
Delaware Valley College located in Bucks County, PA. After graduation she worked as a purchasing agent of electrical materials, and on weekends she worked as a shampoo tech at a hair salon. Her work experience helped her realize how much she loves interacting with people and making them feel good. Around 2016, she decided it was time to go back to school and pursue a career in health sciences with a concentration in dental hygiene. The timeline worked out so that the CDHL program was starting up as she was finally ready to apply. She couldn’t be more excited about her future career as a dental hygienist thanks to the dual degree CDHL program.
