Dental Hygiene

A career in dental hygiene is both fulfilling and challenging, making it a profession that continues to be in high demand. If you dream about being in a healthcare service profession that requires you to have extensive knowledge and clinical training, while being able to develop trusting relationships with patients, dental hygiene will be a great fit for you.

The tasks hygienists perform, and the extent that they must be supervised by a dentist, will vary by state and place of employment. However, in general, dental hygienists typically do the following, which are skills you will learn in our dental hygienist program:

  • Remove tartar, stains and plaque from teeth
  • Apply sealants and fluorides to help protect teeth
  • Take and develop dental x-rays to check for tooth or jaw issues
  • Assess patients’ oral health and report findings to dentists
  • Document patient care and treatment plans
