Rhea's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   Greenwood Dental Healthcare Services

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   I am really excited about a chance to study abroad and learn about another country's culture.  And it's Australia... I just couldn't say no.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  I have worked in a dental office before so if there are differences between the United States and Australia in regards to procedures or dentist-patient interaction I can discuss them with the dentist. I look forward to assisting the dental practitioners in patient care.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I hope to learn more about the field of dentistry and what to anticipate in my future and dental school and when I start working

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?  I plan to go to the Great Barrier Reef, the Gold Coast, and New Zealand.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  The entire trip!  It is going to be nothing like I have experienced before, and I am excited for all of it.
