FORT DODGE - The Iowa Central Dental Hygiene program hosted the Mouth Body Connection on Friday, March 30, in the Biotechnology and Health Science Building. The event was put together by Dental Hygiene students Alyssa Bargmann and Emily McNamara and the goal was to better educate the students in the Iowa Central Nursing program about oral hygiene.
“The purpose was to bridge the gap between health professionals,” said Bargmann. “We met with 40 nursing students and provided information on oral hygiene that they can use with their patients.”
The cross-program event was also catered by the students in the Iowa Central Culinary Arts Department.
