CANTON -- The American Dental Hygienists Association has recognized SUNY Canton’s dental hygiene program for its extensive work in the community for the third consecutive year.

The program, which is located at SUNY Canton’s distant campus in Rome, N.Y., will receive the 2010 American Dental Hygienists Association Student Member Community Service Award.

SUNY Canton is one of just three recipients nationwide to receive the award, which will be presented at their meeting in Las Vegas June 25 and 26.

The students were selected as a result of several community outreach projects over the past two semesters, including at the Upstate Cerebral Palsy Center and the Mohawk Valley Community Action Agency, both in Rome, and with Aspen Dental and Hillside Services in Onondaga County.
