I've been interested the past few weeks about taking some CNA training classes to help find a new job, but I've watched some videos and read about it and noticed that when you learn to brush the patient's teeth, that class members seem to partner up or something and you eventually have to get your teeth brushed by one of the students. It sounds weird but I am very self conscious about my teeth. I've been paying for everything on my own since I've been about 13 or 14 (I'm 23 now), so I've always had a lot of things to pay for myself and bills and never had any money to see a dentist, and currently I'm looking for a new job/have no money/have no insurance, and really really don't want to have anyone brushing my teeth/looking at them anymore than they have to. I mean, my teeth aren't HORRENDOUS...when looking at them they just look a little bit crooked, but if someone were to have to get up close and brush them, they'll see that they're a bit worse. I'm immensely humiliated by my teeth and hate them. Sadly this is deterring me from wanting to go to these classes... Do you think my teacher would be okay if I asked not to have to be the "volunteer" for this?
