• Dear Parent/Guardian and Student:

    Congratulations and welcome to Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center. Your student will have many opportunities as a student in the Dental Occupations class in the 2016-2017 school year. She/he will be exposed to professionalism, various dental health care careers, the basics of chairside dental assisting, OSHA standards and oral/head and neck anatomy and physiology. Since there is a great deal of knowledge to be learned, the importance of regular attendance is essential.

    Your daughter/son has selected a schedule to meet their personal academic and career goals. A half-day student is eligible to participate in activities at both the home school and WMCTC. HOSA and SKILLS USA are two of the student organizations that offer student membership and the opportunity to compete at the local, state and national level.

    Throughout the school year our class, in conjunction with the health occupations program, coordinates a Blood Drive and Wellness Fair for the entire student body. Guest speakers will also be invited to share their work experiences with the students.

    The students are required to have any color or designed uniform, solid white leather or leather type shoes, and white lab coat with rounded collar and cuffed long sleeves (See attached picture under Uniform Materials). Students can purchase uniforms from any uniform store or Walmart. Students can also use the school uniform website to purchase uniforms.  Students will also be required to purchase a book and workbook for $170.00. The book and workbook will be used for all three years in the program. Students will also need to purchase a 3”- 3 ring binder and dividers and a composition notebook.

    Students are expected to be in uniform September 6, 2016.

    If you have any questions please call us at the phone numbers listed. I hope that the 2016-2017 school year is successful for your daughter/son.

    Your success at WMCTC is our success. Class begins on August 29, 2016.

    Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.
