Dr Waxson Rizwold is said to be the first dentist with Post Gradu­ate Bachelor of Oral Surgery in the Solomon Islands.

Dr Rizwold, 48, of Solomons, graduat­ed with a Bachelor’s degree during the Fiji National University graduation cer­emony at the FNU Nursing School Au­ditorium in Tamavua, Suva, yesterday.

He said his achievements were dedi­cated to his wife and daughter who had supported him to pursue further stud­ies.

“My family were my biggest support while I was pursuing my education here in Suva.

“They mean a lot to me and today I am glad to have them by my side to see me graduate as I become the first dentist of Solomon Islands to have a Post Gradu­ate degree in Oral Surgery.

“This was not my first achievement, but I am glad to pursue this degree as it makes me a better doctor and gives me more knowledge to assist my patients back home,” Dr Rizwold said.

His wife, Ella Rizwold said she was proud of her husband’s achievement as she felt it was her own.

“My husband is an amazing dentist and his achievements today made me feel as if it was mine.

“I cannot express how happy I am be­cause I know this education will make him do better in his work,” Ms Rizwold said.
