CNC partners with local outreach dental clinic to provide services to in-need populations

February 12, 2020

The College of New Caledonia has partnered with the Prince George Emergency Dental Outreach Clinic to provide dental services to people in need. Working with community dentists, the agreement allows CNC dental assistant students to get first-hand experience while assisting practice, while dental hygiene students can meet some of their course requirements by providing local anesthetic to patients. “CNC’s dental studies students are training to become health professionals,” said CNC Interim Associate Dean of Health Sciences Wendy Male. “Part of becoming a health professional is understanding the responsibility we have to help those most in need in our community.”   CNC  (BC)
