While COVID has hit a lot of people hard, one area that has been often thought about is dental work. Dentists and Hygenists are needed on a regular basis and Kristen Holsapple, director of dental hygiene at Lakeland College says that at the College, they’re still training. Holsapple says that while training in the classroom has it’s difficulties Lakeland is offering free cleanings during this time which includes plenty of incentives.
Holsapple says that you can feel safe because although the appointments are longer, instructors are checking to make sure things are done correctly.
During this time, there are requirements needed in order to graduate, so every semester that quota goes up. Holsapple says they need people to pass.
To get registered for an appointment is relatively easy. All you have to do is call.
Kristen Holsapple appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM morning show.
