Our Dental Studies Program is featured in the latest edition of the Arizona Dental Association journal Inscriptions.
The article, “Pima Community College: Their New Innovative and Integrated Approach to Learning,”focuses on recent improvements in the program through a $3.25 million federal Title V grant. The grant, which was awarded in 2013 through the U.S. Department of Education, is funding upgrades, including adding cutting-edge technology to the program’s facilities at West Campus. This allows the program to enroll more students and pilot new curriculum. Title V is a program that helps Hispanic-Serving Institutions, such as PCC, improve their services.
Inscriptions is the official journal of the AzDA, and is a benefit of AzDA membership. It is published monthly in print and online.
PCC’s Dental Studies Program offers Associate of Applied Science degrees in Dental Hygiene, and Dental Laboratory Technology, as well as certificates for direct employment in Dental Assisting Education. It also has specialized Dental Lab Tech specialization certificates in Complete Dentures Technologist, Dental Ceramics Technologist, Fixed Bridgework Technologist and Partial Dentures Technologist.
