A Message from Terri Graham, Interim President, West and Downtown Campuses

Kudos to our Dental Hygiene program employees and students who were recently honored at the 2021 Florida Dental Hygiene Symposium that was held earlier this month at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista.

Robin Poole, professor, dental hygiene, was recognized for completing her second year as the president of the Florida Dental Hygiene Association, which represents more than 12,000 dental hygienists who practice in Florida.

Additionally, students Cony Collado Mendez and Diana Terracciano, received a first-place and Peoples’ Choice award for a presentation on laser therapy, and students Lizmarie Maysonet and Nicole Small received third place for a presentation on HPV. Valencia students also placed first place in a board review game competing against 17 other schools.
