Twenty new dental assistants have graduated from the Division of Health Science Education’s one-year Dental Assistant Programme.Speaking at the simple graduation ceremony, Programme Coordinator Debra Patterson-Skeete pointed out that the training allows for graduates to have practical experience in dentistry.The new dental assistantsShe said that the assistants have been introduced to dental X-rays and so “they are well capable of doing correct infection control methods”.The graduates hail from Region One (Barima-Waini), Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara), Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica), Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice), Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) and Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice).The best graduating student from the programme was Nafeeza Benn of Berbice. In addressing her peers, she spoke of the many challenges and sacrifices she had to make to successfully complete the programme.“I had to leave my family and my comfortable home and sometimes late at nights I had to study…sometimes I wanted to go out and then you had exams so I had to study for my exam and today to be the top student is a dream come true,” Benn said.Copping the most improved student was Dwayne Barry. Barry said he always wanted a career in the dentistry field and with the help of his family he was able to pursue.Some of the areas covered in the course included training in sterilisation, patient care, ethics & communication, anatomy, oral health promotion and care of equipment among other areas.
From staff reports When Darren Collison went to UCLA’s bench in the second half of an exhibition game, it seemed like a customary move to rest a starter during a blowout. However, Collison injured his left knee Friday against Azusa Pacific and will have an MRI today. Collison had his knee wrapped and was on crutches after the game. Ben Howland said the worst-case scenario is a meniscus tear. That could mean a 4-to-6 week rehabilitation period and possible arthroscopic surgery. Collison never limped off the court. He scored the game’s first points off a steal and a one-handed dunk, so perhaps he came down awkwardly on the court after that play. Collison was meeting with a doctor and his parents after the game. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
