found the Riser School Based Dental Hygiene Clinic. Over the years, over 2,500 children have been treated.
University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne Dental Hygiene program recently joined the rest of the institution in celebrating its 50th anniversary. The program is also marking the start of the new BS-DH with this year's class.
With only 10 students admitted each year, the State Fair Community College (SFCC) Dental Hygiene program in Sedalia, MO, may be a small program, but the value of services they provide to the surrounding community is immeasurable.
