Maintaining Healthy Smiles
Our Dental Hygiene program will teach you how to play a critical role as part of a dental health care team that educates and treats patients. You will provide preventative care and treatment, which may include medical and dental history review, head and neck examination, exposure of dental radiographs (x- rays), dental prophylaxis (teeth cleaning), fluoride, sealants and polishing of restorations. This is the only accredited Dental Hygiene program in Philadelphia, through which you will use state-of-the-art equipment; have access to faculty who are experts in the dental hygiene profession; benefit from supervised, hands-on experience with patients; and receive excellent preparation for taking the required exams for licensing and certification.
This program is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association.
