This will help the college meet legislative training mandate and will allow 10 additional students to participate in the 24-student program.

"This is great," said Roz Harman, director of health services at College of Marin. "This is a program that really prepares people to get a job immediately. In this economy, it's particularly important. By the end of the program they will be getting a job."

The grant also funds teaching staff and a tutor to help with the student's progress in addition to new equipment.

New curriculum mandated by the California Legislature this year include digital impression scanning, intraoral and extraoral photography and operation of caries detectors.
