Two Westbrook Junior College dental hygiene students stand at the autoclave in this 1962 black and white glossy photo, taken in the DH Clinic (later Coleman Building), by The Wendell White Studio, Portland, Maine. The DH student on the left holds a small tray of instruments ready for the autoclave. The DH student on the right opens the autoclave door. Both young ladies wear white uniform dresses. The WJC patch is just visible on the right uniform shoulder of the student on the left. The autoclave sits on a shelf just to the right of a stainless steel sink.
