Dental School

Story by Tri Hoang

Audio Transcript [English]:

[Image 1] This story is about me going back to school in Montreal. The University of Montreal had a program to recertify dentists who had arrived in Quebec from foreign countries. Our class had nine people, seven were Vietnamese, one was Laotian, and the last one French. The man standing there in the suit was the vice-dean of Dentistry at the University, and the woman next to him was the chief-of-staff of the dental clinic.
