Russian educators visit dental labs at Sylvania

Photos and Story by

A group of nearly a dozen educators from Russia visited the Sylvania Campus this month to tour its dental clinic facilities and inquire about educational opportunities for dental assistants and hygienists in the United States.

Russian educators observe a PCC dental instructor and student at work in the dental labs at the Sylvania Campus. Nearly a dozen Russians paid a visit to Sylvania, which was coordinated with A-dec based in Newberg.

Josette Beach, PCC’s dental program director, led the hour-long tour and helped to coordinate the visit with A-dec, based in Newberg. This is the third time that A-dec has brought a group of Russian educators to the Sylvania Campus to study its program.
