My experience was one I will never forget and I am forever grateful for the choice I made applying to the program, as well as the knowledge I received from the remarkable professors and instructors. If you believe that dental hygiene is the career you wish to pursue I encourage you to apply to STCC. You will not regret it.Holly O'Connor, Class of 2017, Optimal Smiles, Longmeadow
