A single patient received $1,000 worth of care. “Another patient we saved from going to the emergency room which would have likely been a $5,000 visit to hospital,” said Misty Mesimer, dental hygiene program local coordinator and dental assisting program director at Germanna.

Services provided included:
Oral exams
Dental hygiene therapy
Tooth Removal
The dental program is based at GCC’s Locust Grove Campus in Orange County.
