Mario (person on the left) is an Italian VET apprentice doing an internship abroad in Belfast. His supervisor Colin, who is himself a local technician at Mcdowell + Service is pleased to teach Mario. Together, they are creating a dental prosthesis for a patient, at their award-winning dental laboratory. The patient looks forward to showing her smile to the world.
On later conversations, Mario admitted that through his placement he could assimilate new work techniques that allowed him to be much faster and accurate in his work, and that the whole work experience was beautiful.
“If I had the opportunity to go back to them, even for a short time or just in Belfast, I would.
”We believe that learning is a lifelong process and transmitting knowledge from generation to generation is a vital principle of it. We can only conclude that learning is the legacy of smiling.
