The funds will support the Fund for Excellence for Dental Programs, and will be used to update HACC’s dental clinic so students are trained in a state-of-the-art setting that will prepare them for employment in the field.
Like all healthcare industries, the dental industry is experiencing increased demand for services and high rates of growth. To ensure that HACC students continue to receive the best educational experiences possible, they need access to cutting-edge technology and equipment to prepare them to work.
