VCC hosts free dental clinic for children, celebrates 50 years of Deaf and Hard of Hearing program

Vancouver Community College students recently held a special clinic to provide children from the community with free dental services. Students in the 10-month Certified Dental Assisting program offered free dental assessments, oral hygiene instructions, polishing, and fluoride treatment to nearly 200 children. “I feel like this event has empowered kids and their families to take control of their oral health, preventing minor problems from becoming big problems,” said VCC student Josephine Jolie. VCC’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing program also recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. To mark the year, the program held a special event that brought together faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
