Department of Dental Hygiene

Our dynamic faculty members encourage a learning environment that produces hygienists who will positively impact oral health through education, research and service at local, state and national level.


Our faculty members bring more than 70 total years of teaching to the classroom and clinic floor. Prior to committing to higher education, each of our educators developed expertise working directly with patients. Their invaluable experience helps develop highly recruited dental hygienists.
