Dental Hygiene

Philosophy of the Dental Hygiene Program

The philosophy of the dental hygiene program is to empower students to grow into lifelong learners who are competent in providing patient care to a diverse population in traditional and non-traditional settings. Our aim is to inspire students to become critical thinkers who utilize evidence-based decision-making within the scope of dental hygiene practice. In addition, baccalaureate graduates complete educational requirements that provide a liberal arts foundation while also attaining expanded knowledge and skills in dental hygiene practice.
