Senior Dental Hygiene students from SJVC’s Rancho Cucamonga campus had a firsthand look of how digital technology is enhancing restorative dentistry.
Guided by Precision Ceramics Dental Laboratory’s VP and co-owner, Mark Jackson RDT, SJVC students were impressed by the facility’s innovation in fabricating precise restorations through digital impressions, CAD/CAM lasers, and cone-beam computerized tomography (CT scans guiding dentists’ precise placement of dental implants).
In promoting oral health, SJVC dental hygiene students are acutely aware of their role in educating patients while supporting treatment options dentists may prescribe.
Students Diana Brickley DH ’12 and Rachel Delvaux DH ’12, reported the Precision Ceramics experience “was amazing, gaining a better understanding of how advances in technology can help (dentists) make great dental restorations!”
SJVC faculty, Betsy Wilson RDH, stated, “integrating knowledge of the exciting developments in dental materials technology supports the SJVC dental hygiene curriculum, so that graduates are skilled, confident, and educated oral health care professionals.”
