Promote dental health
Working directly with patients, dental hygienists show people how to take proper care of their oral health. They clean and polish teeth and take X-rays and molds. They also perform some administrative duties, such as recording patients’ dental histories and updating charts.

In TSTC’s Dental Hygiene program, you will receive training on assessing the oral cavity and people’s teeth. You’ll also learn to take X-rays and perform basic oral health screenings. Students will provide patient education on oral hygiene, tobacco cessation, nutritional status, and overall oral and systemic health. Students will develop the skills needed to provide preventive dental care to the public and attend clinical rotations on campus and off-campus in their last semester. That’s sure to put a smile on your face.
Requirements to enter the Dental Hygiene program differ from those of other programs; be sure to read the program requirements before enrolling.
