Ne öğreneceğim?

Dental hygiene is a Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) accredited associate of applied science degree program that is designed to prepare students to work as an integral part of a dental team. As licensed professionals, dental hygienists provide a variety of educational and health care services to the public, including: cleaning and polishing teeth; applying preventive agents such as fluorides and sealants; exposing and processing radiographs; educating patients in the prevention of oral diseases; instructing patients in home care procedures; removing hard and soft deposits from teeth; providing nutritional counseling; administering nitrous oxide sedation and local anesthesia; and performing other preventive patient services.

Students have direct patient contact in the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College (UCBA) Dental Hygiene Clinic. The UCBA Dental Hygiene Clinic is open to the public and provides dental hygiene services, charging a nominal fee to cover equipment and supplies.

The UCBA Dental Hygiene Program is structured in accordance with accreditation requirements stipulated by the CODA of the American Dental Association. Upon successful completion of the two academic years, graduates are eligible to take national, regional, state and local anesthesia written and clinical licensure examinations.

Graduates can be employed in general/family, pediatrics, or periodontal practices, hospitals, public health clinics, research institutions, public schools, business and industry, or the armed forces.


Students who succeed in the dental hygiene program have a strong science background. They are effective time managers, adept at setting priorities, possess effective organizational skills and demonstrate a willingness to work hard, think critically and communicate in a professional manner. Oral and written communication skills are essential.
