Thinking about a career in Dental Hygiene?

Dental hygienists are licensed oral health professionals who focus on preventing and treating oral diseases-both to protect teeth and gums, and also to protect patients' total health.

They are graduates of accredited dental hygiene education programs in colleges and universities, and must take a written national board examination and a clinical examination before they are licensed to practice. In addition to treating patients directly, dental hygienists may also work as educators, researchers, and administrators.

The Dental Hygiene Class of 2017 had 95% pass rate, 2016 had 100%, and 2015 had a 100% pass rate on the National Dental Hygiene Board Exam.
