Change a Life Through EducationFor Students
Since our inception, our relationship with MONTCO has grown from providing scholarships — to funding various programs and initiatives that connect through the dental hygiene program.
The Tierra L. Dobry Foundation Scholarship itself, is for students pursuing careers in dental hygiene. The number of TLD Foundation scholarships awarded is dependent upon available annual funds. Scholarships are awarded to defray school expenses, which include tuition, fees, books and supplies. Eligibility of the Tierra L. Dobry Foundation scholarship program includes academic merit, financial need and an essay.
The goal of the Tierra L. Dobry Scholarship Fund is to promote academic excellence and to provide an opportunity for students to reach their highest potential and achieve great things through higher education.

Children’s Dental Sealant ProgramMONTCO
MONTCO’s Dental Hygiene Program and the TLD Foundation Proudly Co-sponsored a Children’s Dental Sealant Program – A program of complimentary oral examinations and sealant placement for children ages 6-14 years.
Dental sealants are clear, protective coatings placed on permanent back teeth in order to prevent dental decay. Preventive services were performed at the College’s Dental Hygiene Clinic by licensed dental hygienists in conjunction with Montgomery County Community College dental hygiene students and in consultation with licensed dentists.
As a mission of the Foundation, the end result is important, and one of those focuses is the scholarship fund. Each year as a Foundation and family, we are extended the invitation to dine with the recipients at MONTCO's Salute To Excellence Dinner. It's a Montgomery County Community College event celebrating students and supporters in their commitment to higher education.
As a family, it's a blessing to see the legacy namesake of our Foundation – help another life, and also meet those people behind the personal letters and stories that are a requirement of the scholarship.
