Wilmington Tri-County Dental Society Continues Support of CFCC

The Wilmington Tri-County Dental Society recently presented the Cape Fear Community College Foundation with a check for $4,000 to fund provide funding to assist dental hygiene and dental assisting students at CFCC.

The majority of funds will provide scholarships for students, but $1,000 will also be available to be used at the discretion of the faculty to assist deserving students with various expenses that emerge at the end of the students’ program, such as fees to take board exams and licensure fees.

Since 1999, the Wilmington Tri-County Dental Association has provided over $32,000 in support of Cape Fear Community College Dental Students.

“The Tri-County Dental Society has been a strong advocate for both the dental assisting and dental hygiene programs at CFCC since the inception of both programs,” said Mary Ellen Naylor, Dental Hygiene Program Director.  “They have provided scholarships and opened their practice doors for our students’ education.  We sincerely thank them for the part they play in the educational success of our students.”
