Nicole (Nikki) Liles is a former graduate of NC Dental U. She completed the program in 2009 and joined the NC Dental U family in the summer of 2013. One of her primary goals is to have the students feel as confident and comfortable as possible going into the dental field. Her most recent abilities were utilized at a corporate dental office as a dental assistant, rock-star dental hygiene coordinator, and then mastering the front desk with all the office duties it entails. After much soul searching she made the decision to follow her passion and focus her career in a new direction as the new NC Dental U Assistant Director of Education and instructor. Her love for people is a driving force for her superb instruction skills. Her reward for all her hard work and dedication is the joy she feels as her students become excited as they travel from dental illiteracy to dental fluency thereby opening the doors to their new dental career.
