The Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) held their first dental science competition on Wednesday, March 14 at the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services facility in Milford. During the competition students took a written and skills test which focused on the Dental Science pathway that is offered at various tech schools throughout the state including Polytech, Delcastle, Howard and Sussex Tech.

During the competition students were asked to identify dental instruments, mix alginate impressions, and teach a patient the proper ways to brush and floss teeth. HOSA also offers other health occupation competitions throughout the year in the fields of clinical nursing, medical assistance, biotechnology, physical therapy and medical technology.

“We are creating as pipeline for future healthcare workers and help the students to develop not only their skills but their confidence in what they are doing,” commented Dr. Peg Enslen, HOSA State Advisor. “The program of studies helps secondary education to post-secondary education students as they connect to professionals and receive a smooth transition into the field of occupational health.”

Winners of the HOSA Dental Science Competition were first place winner Logan Wharton from Sussex Tech, second place winner, Jetzain Lucero from Delcastle and third place winner Jessica Martinez from Delcastle. As winner of the Delaware HOSA competition, Wharton will have the opportunity to compete at the HOSA National Leadership Conference this June in Orlando, Florida.
