In this segment of Good Day PA, Dr. Michael Verber and Dr. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams, President of Central Penn College, discuss the innovative dental programs at Central Penn College.

Addressing a critical workforce shortage in the dental industry, they highlight the introduction of new programs such as dental assisting, dental treatment coordination, and the anticipated dental hygiene program in 2025.

Dr. Verber explains the significance of the Expanded Functions Dental Assistant (EFDA) program, likening it to a physician’s assistant role in medicine.

The segment also emphasizes the availability of scholarships to make these programs accessible, thanks to contributions from the Verber Family Foundation and other local dentists.
