On Friday, February 7, CCC Dental Programs hosted Give Kids A Smile! Our Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting Students worked with over 40 children on their oral health. They performed preventative treatments, x-rays, and homecare instruction. Dr. Lassin, Dr. Shubach and Dr. Raden provided restorative treatment to those who were in need. A wonderful time and great community service was had by all!
Barbara Jacobs is retiring after 45 years of service to Camden County College and taught over 900 dental hygienists throughout her career! Dr. Catherine Boos is also retiring after 31 years of service to Camden County College as the Director of Dental Programs. Their retirements are effective on June 30th. We wish them the very best in their next chapter and thank them for their service to the dental community. A search for their replacements is ongoing and once a selection is made, Camden County College will be happy to make that announcement.
Since Dr. Boos is retiring, we are in need of supervising dentist for the clinic.
The Dental Department at Camden County College is hiring licensed dentist wishing to participate as adjunct faculty in our dental hygiene clinic beginning in the fall semester. The clinical sessions are three hour time units and take place Monday through Thursday, depending on the semester. For more information, please contact Barbara Z.
