(HOWARD, SD) – Horizon Health Care, Inc. (Horizon) and Prairie Winds Dental Clinic, in collaboration with the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, are pleased to introduce two dental students who are doing their clinical rotations in Howard from July 31 – August 18, 2017.
The two students visiting Howard are Michael Lindsay of Madison, SD, and Erica Dickmeyer of Fremont, NE. Lindsay’s plans after dental school include a pediatric residency. His hobbies include snowboarding, traveling, food and photography. Dickmeyer, who plans to move to Colorado or Kansas City after dental school, enjoys running, biking, playing tennis and reading.
“This program has been a great opportunity to bring dental professionals back to South Dakota to work in our rural communities,” said Dr. Michelle Scholtz, Chief Dental Officer of Horizon. “The rotation is preferred for students that are residents of South Dakota or neighboring states and we have been fortunate to have six dentists that have come to work for Horizon after their rotations. We always enjoy the time getting to know these students and introducing them to our communities.”
