The field of dental care is constantly growing and advancing, and with that growth has come a need for well-trained dental hygienists. With new developments in technology and new techniques, many of the procedures common in today’s dental offices didn’t even exist 20 years ago!

Our program was developed with this level of innovation in mind, maintaining the highest standards and we are proud to be one of only two schools in Atlantic Canada accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada. Our curriculum is based on national and provincial standards and 100% of our students were successful on last year’s National Examination.
