WEC Unit: Dental Hygiene

Dental Hygiene, an undergraduate program within the School of Dentistryand home to 13 faculty and 48 undergraduate students. The accelerated program is integrated with dental and dental therapy curricula and allows students to graduate with their Bachelor of Science degree in three years. The program’s goals include preparing highly qualified dental hygiene healthcare professionals who are culturally competent and active in leadership roles in oral health promotion in their communities. A dental hygienist with a bachelor's degree is prepared to assume roles in many different health care environments such as general and speciality practices, public schools, government agencies, community health clinics, insurance companies, dental hygiene educational programs, extended care facilities, and in the health products industry.

Dental Hygiene is expected to submit its Writing Plan to the Campus Writing Board in Spring 2017. Once the Plan is approved and implementation has begun, further updates will be posted.
