A message From Professor Walsh

My sincere hope is to generate the future of well-rounded healthcare providers who find satisfaction in their careers by helping communities lead healthier lives.

Goodwin’s Dental Hygiene program offers students the education and skill-set to administer exceptional patient-centered care, and its coursework encourages lifelong learning in the Dental Hygiene profession.

Our Dental Hygiene students work in a diverse patient atmosphere and make a profound difference practicing their skills in our state-of-the-art health care facility, where we do not charge people for the preventive services we provide.

For prospective learners considering the dental hygiene profession, please keep in mind that anything in life worth doing takes hard work, determination, and a commitment to achieving your goals.

The Dental Hygiene program is rigorous and will challenge you in ways you never thought possible. However, if it challenges you, it will change you, and the courage to embrace that change and earn your education will lead to a solid foundation for your future happiness and success.

Best regards,
Christine Walsh, M.S., Program Director
