Dental Hygiene Degree Program

The Goodwin College Dental Hygiene Program is designed to equip students with the skills to become professionals ready to assist the public and the community by providing clinical and therapeutic services as well as oral dental education. The program is centered on evidence-based learning with the theoretical foundation and hands-on classwork that prepares our students for the workforce and engenders an appreciation for lifelong learning.

Dental Hygiene program students must be able to perform all functions and tasks required of a dental hygienist. As part of the curriculum the student would be asked to fully participate in all clinic/rotation/community service activities.

Upon completion of the required 80 credit program, students will be eligible to apply for National Board exams. After successfully passing the National Board exams students will obtain a Connecticut Dental Hygienist Licensure.
