Scientific evidence has established a significant connection between oral and overall health.
As the state's only dental hygiene program, we prepare students for state-of-the-art health practice, having completed an outreach-based, prevention-focused, patient-centered, interprofessional educational foundation that focuses on whole body wellness.
Our students are well-prepared for the national dental hygiene board exam, which is required for licensure in any state. Our students have had a 99 percent success rate on this national exam since 2005.
