Education & Careers

Dental Hygienists have the opportunity to help people in all walks of life protect their oral health. They enjoy a professional work environment and continued learning about dentistry, as well as creating lifelong relationships with their patients.

In addition to clinical practice, Hygienists also work as educators, researchers, administrators, managers, preventive program developers, consumer advocates and consultants. These diverse applications of our educational background allow us the opportunity to assist many individuals.
