Mrs. Cynthia Ahlborn, CDA, EFDA, BAS

It is my pleasure to introduce myself. My name is Cynthia Ahlborn. I am a native of the mitten state, Michigan.  I was a dental assistant in Michigan for 30+ years since 1977 and received my Certified Dental Assistant Certification in 1990. I became a member of the American Dental Assistants Association in 1998.  Graduated from Oakland Community College in Michigan with an Associate’s Degree in 2008.

In 2009, my husband and I moved from our home state to Punta Gorda to escape the cold weather. We have two sons, a daughter in law and an adorable grandson My new career as a dental assisting instructor at Charlotte Technical College began in October of 2009. This is currently my eleventh year instructing in the dental assistant program. In 2013, I returned to college for my Baccalaureate degree. I graduated from Florida SouthWestern State College with a BAS degree in Management and Supervision in December of 2017.

I am a staunch believer that anyone can reach their goals if they set their minds to it. Furthering your education can lead to many directions in life and ultimately to great satisfaction. 

When I am not teaching, grading tests or planning my curriculum, I like to swim, read and walk the bridge in Punta Gorda. I also enjoy soaking up the warm sunshine on the beaches of Florida.
