Dental Hygiene students at the 4th Annual Dental Hygiene Fair.

Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene Hosts 4th Annual Oral Health Fair

July 14, 2016

  • This year, we are celebrating the one hundredth anniversary of the Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene, and what better way to recognize the legacy of the institution than by showcasing the talents of our students. At today’s 4th annual Oral Health Fair, our dental hygiene students did just that.

    As attendees made their way through the event, they connected with dental hygiene students, who shared best practices, provided oral health assessments, and administered sodium fluoride varnish treatments. Free samples were provided to all attendees, and an Oral-B electric toothbrush was raffled off.

    During the fair, Megan Horen DH ’16 shared brushing and flossing best practices with us – and even gave a tutorial for using a tongue scrape. The next stop during our Oral Health Fair was to check in with Lori Rainchuso, RDH MS -Graduate Program Director, Isabella Tarro DH ’17 and Nicole Collina DH ’17 for an oral health assessment, including a sodium fluoride varnish treatment. Micaela Gendron DH ’17 and Fleet Kirchmier DH ’16 lent a festive air to the fair, welcome attendees with big inflated toothbrushes and toothpaste.

    The Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year. We are the longest continually running dental hygiene program in the country and offers bachelor's, master's and graduate certificate programs.
