Each year, the dental hygiene clinics provide the greatest challenge for our students...the makeshift conditions, the heat, the severity of our patients' conditions, the limited resources all demand our greatest efforts. Yet, the students all rise to the occasion. We are very proud of all them for their tenacity, teamwork, and attitude. We saw almost 100 patients in 6 long days. Thanks to the extra help provided by our second dental hygiene faculty, Tika Brown and CDA faculty, Shelley Melissa. It went as well as it did because of their unwavering support and assistance.

while their parent(s) receive DH care. The Canada stickers were a hit. Thanks to Brett!
|Plenty of opportunity to coach and assist, with Tika and Shelley's help.|
|The teaming of a junior and senior student was very helpful. The seniors were great mentors!|

A water spray bottle and a big fan! Yes!!!
