JAC Dental Hygiene in the News! || Le programme d’Hygiène Dentaire de JAC dans l’actualité !


Saturday, November 26, the John Abbott College Dental Hygiene clinic opened its doors to a very select group of residents from the greater Montreal area. Why, you ask? To offer dental exams and treatment to those who cannot afford to go to the dentist. Abbott Dental Hygiene students, staff & faculty volunteered alongside members of the Gift From the Heart charity all day. Reservation spots filled in the bat of an eye and by the end of the day thirty-five plus people were treated – in 1 day. Many more were turned away.Read the whole story by following this link to the West Island News:


Samedi 26 novembre, la clinique d’hygiène dentaire du Collège John Abbott a ouvert ses portes à un groupe très sélect de résidents de la grande région de Montréal. Pourquoi, demandez-vous ? Pour offrir des examens et des traitements dentaires à ceux qui n’ont pas les moyens d’aller chez le dentiste.
Les étudiants en hygiène dentaire, le personnel et les professeurs de John Abbott ont travaillé bénévolement toute la journée aux côtés des membres de l’organisation caritative Gift From the Heart. Les places réservées se sont remplies en un clin d’œil et, à la fin de la journée, plus de trente-cinq personnes ont été traitées – en une seule journée. Beaucoup d’autres ont été refusées.
