Generally, dental hygienists may work in private practice or independently providing client-centred care. Oral health promotion and health prevention are their main focus. Students will learn in the state-of-the-art classrooms and labs. Coursework includes topics such as microbiology for dental hygienists, principles in dental hygiene, preventive oral health promotion, research methods, health policy and advocacy and evidence-based practice.
