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.
