DENTAL HYGIENE

Students must be admitted to the Dental Hygiene program to enroll in dental hygiene courses unless specific permission is granted by the program director.


Board Examinations

Students completing the dental hygiene program in Ohio take a National Board Examination, and a Northeast Regional Board examination. Once these examinations have been successfully achieved, application can be made for licensure with the State Dental Board. Since the inception of the dental hygiene program, all students choosing to practice dental hygiene have passed these exams.
