WVU Dentistry dedicates Michele Ross Dental Hygiene Lab. Held in conjunction with celebration of program’s 50th academic year.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Michele Ross, a 1999 graduate of the West Virginia University School of Dentistry’s Dental Hygiene program, will be the first to tell you how proud she is to be a Mountaineer. In fact, she’s so proud of her alma mater that she made a $100,000 gift toward the renovation of the Dental Hygiene Lab, which was officially dedicated Friday (Oct. 3).
With Ross’ gift and the $20,000 she helped to raise through donations from some of her fellow alums, the Dental Hygiene Lab received a major facelift. All the countertops, cabinets, and lighting were replaced. An additional lab station was added -- for a total of 25 – and each station is equipped with a new dental simulator manikin head and monitor. The stations also have the added feature of laptop connectivity. The work was completed in March while students were on spring break.http://wvuhealthcare.com/news/story?headline=/2014/OCT/WVU-Dentistry-dedicates-Michele-Ross-Dental-Hygien
