- In this interview, Larry Chiswell, a D.M.D. and professor of dental hygiene at Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), discusses growing up in a military family, his college years, and the decisions and interests that ultimately led him to study at University of Kentucky's College of Dentistry. He discusses his compulsory military service in Italy after the Vietnam War and how he came to teach in the University of Kentucky's baccalaureate program for dental hygienists, and ultimately, in the associate degree program at Lexington Community College (LCC) in 1976. Chiswell discusses administrative changes in the top tiers of LCC and how these changes impacted him, colleagues, and students. In addition, he highlights how Kentucky's mobile hygiene programs were transformed once KCTCS was established and the important role that current technologies have played in this transformation. Chiswell also shares general thoughts on the creation of KCTCS, its challenges, its rewards.
