Dental Hygiene Department

Dental Hygiene

-Taft College’s Dental Hygiene program has sought to inspire and teach dental care that is comprehensive in its technical excellence and in its orientation to an awareness of the total health needs of the individual patient.

-Dental hygienists are licensed oral health professionals who focus on preventing and treating oral diseases in order to protect the oral cavity, and also to protect the patients’ total health. They are graduates of accredited dental hygiene education programs in colleges and universities, and must pass a written national board examination and a clinical examination to obtain state licensure.

-The Taft College Dental Hygiene Program gives students the knowledge, experience, and educational requirements necessary to take the state and national board examinations. As the world’s understanding of preventive and restorative oral health care grows, so does the need for dental care givers and support staff. Taft College graduates are in demand.
