Last week, Dental Hygiene students participated in a statewide “Informative Poster” competition at the Pennsylvania Dental Hygienists Association annual Keystone Dental Health Conference. There were 44 student poster presentations, and monetary awards were presented to the top 10 teams.
Two Manor students, Amy Deng and Duongchanthra Bopa, came in 7th place for their presentation entitled: “Could There Be a Correlation Between Alzheimer’s and P. Gingivalis?”
All of the Dental Hygiene students also participated in special student events that the Association sponsored on Saturday. The conference was a great opportunity to network with students from other PA schools, and served as a nice introduction to dental hygiene‘s professional association.
