BOISE — Idaho State University is among those receiving contributions from Delta Dental of Idaho this week. A gift of $500,000 will supply the aging dental hygiene clinic in Pocatello with 15 new chairs, dental delivery systems and lights that will transform the clinic to meet industry standards. Additionally, 10 existing chairs will be retrofitted with new dental delivery systems and lights.
Much of the existing equipment in the clinic was originally installed in 1981, the same year Microsoft released its MS-DOS program. The equipment has served the clinic well, but today’s dental hygiene students need updated facilities to receive the highest level of training possible. The donation will allow them to be ready to join the modern dental industry and make a lasting impact on oral health care in Idaho.Read Full Article
