|The SDM's Dental Hygiene Program is the only one in the state of Pennsylvania that is part of a major University, medical center, and accredited dental school. This affiliation opens the doors to many possibilities beyond those traditionally available for dental hygienists|
Today's dental hygienist is not limited to clinical practice alone. Although the SDM's Dental Hygiene Program provides outstanding clinical instruction, its graduates are prepared for careers in related areas, including: hospital-based dental hygiene, public health services, education, research, marketing, administration, and military services.
The program offers two academic tracks for dental hygiene students: a certificate in dental hygiene and a Bachelor of Science degree completion option in dental hygiene.
