Dental Hygiene, A.S.

About

The Dental Hygiene program is designed to train individuals to perform as efficient dental professionals in the dental health environment. Dental hygienists are preventive oral health professionals licensed to provide educational, clinical, research, administrative and therapeutic services supporting total health through the promotion of optimum oral health.

Upon completion of this program, students are eligible to sit for the National Dental Hygiene Board examination and the state clinical examination to receive licensure. To become a dental hygienist in Florida, you must meet the Requirements of the Florida Board of Dentistry and this program prepares students to meet those requirements.

This program is pending accreditation and the first class is anticipated to begin Fall 2023.

Dental programs are limited access.

Limited access programs have admissions processes and criteria beyond general college admissions. While any student meeting the minimum criteria is encouraged to apply, not all applicants may be accepted.
