Crisstill Duaso, Dental Hygiene LCC


Welcome… I’m your LCC Crisstill Duaso

I am so excited to meet all of you in the fall! I will be a resource for you as you navigate through your first year of college here at Minnesota State University, Mankato.  Being involved with the Dental Hygiene Learning Community will help you academically as well as socially, so utilize me and your peers as much as you can!

Major: Dental Hygiene 

Minor: Marketing 

How/what made you decide this major? 

I’ve always been interested in anything involving dentistry. I loved going to the dentist from a young age. When I found out the many benefits of being a dental hygienist, I knew that it was something I wanted to pursue a career in. I chose to minor in marketing because I heard that it would give me an advantage working in a dental office and some business topics are really interesting to me.

Favorite thing about MSU: The fun events they put on  

Campus/LC Involvement: I was part of the Dental Hygiene LC for my first year.

Anything else we should know about you? I was originally born in the Philippines and moved to Minnesota when I was about 5. I love my family and we visit back home as much as we can. I love listening to music and some of my favorites are Harry Styles, Juice Wrld, Olivia Rodrigo, and Taylor Swift. I also enjoy working out and have recently started doing it more at the beginning of the year.
