Bookmark and Share
Students from Fox Valley Technical College’s Dental Hygienist program earned 1st and 4th place finishes in a state table clinic competition as part of the Wisconsin Dental Hygienists’ Association Indigo annual conference.

The first place winners were Macey Griffith, Menasha, and Karleah Edseth of Neenah, whose research topic focused on stem cell tooth regeneration. Fourth place winners included students Hannah Boushley, Neenah, and Amber Jentz of Appleton. Their project presented information on the topic of oral Human Papillomavirus (HPV).

The students are now preparing for potential participation at the national American Dental Hygienists’ Association research project competitions in Phoenix in June of 2012.

Graduates from FVTC’s accredited Dental Hygienist program have experienced an 88% job placement rate during the past three years.
