Dental Assisting Students Learn
to Give Back to the Community

Bradenton, FL.-Manatee Technical Institute Dental Assisting Students participated in a "Passport to Wellness Event" for children of migrant farmworkers of Manatee County at the school during November 2013.  The event was sponsored by Tropicana Products, Inc. in cooperation with the MTI Farmworkers Education Program.  With the help of 5 area dentists, 7 registered dental hygienists, and a team of school nurses from the Manatee County School District, the MTI Dental Assisting Students were able to assure that 50 children of migrant farmworkers received preventive dental education, radiographs, exam, prophy, fluoride varnish, and a bag of dental home-care supplies.  Follow-up treatment was scheduled for those needing sealants, restorative work, or other dental interventions.   The MTI students are guided by their instructors and FDAA members Kimberly Bland, CDA, EFDA, M.Ed. and Brenda Ware, CDA, EFDA, M.A.
