Second-year students in the Dental Hygiene program at Ozarks Technical Community College will visit the Dickerson Park Zoo on Wednesday, April 14, at 8:30 a.m., to provide dental treatment for two female maned wolves. 

“This opportunity is part of a yearly project in which the Dental Hygiene students choose a community service they would like to provide,” explained Marge Bell, director of the College’s Dental Hygiene program.  “They try to make it something that is interesting to them, and still within their scope of practice.”

Instructors from the Dental Hygiene program will accompany the students to the zoo.  For more information on this event, contact program director Marge Bell by calling (417) 447-8836.
