Dental Hygiene/Hygienist. 510602


A key member of the professional dental team, the licensed dental hygienist is on the front line of patient care, responsible for providing educational, clinical and therapeutic services that promote total health through good oral health. The growing public awareness of the benefits of oral health, combined with the growth of corporate dental plans, has significantly increased the demand for dental care and has made dental hygiene one of the country’s fastest-growing careers.  Competitive salaries and flexible work schedules are added benefits. Students in JCCC’s dental hygiene program prepare for careers as preventive dental professionals who have a choice of working in a variety of settings. Upon successful completion of licensure requirements and board examinations, graduates get jobs in school systems, nursing homes and dental supply firms, as well as private dental offices.

Fully accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation, this 79-credit-hour program requires four semesters and one summer session of full-time study. Successful completion leads to an associate of applied science degree. All dental hygiene students gain important practical experience working in JCCC’s state-of-the-art clinical facility under the supervision of licensed dental hygienists and dentists.  Enrollment is limited.
