Dental hygienists are licensed to provide educational, therapeutic, and preventive services to children and adults in a variety of treatment settings.
This career program is designed to prepare students with the knowledge, clinical, and problem-solving skills required to function as part of interprofessional teams capable of addressing oral health needs in society.
Although the dental hygiene courses are sequential and begin only during the fall semester, students may begin and complete the required general education courses during any semester. The professional curriculum runs five consecutive semesters, including one summer session.
This program of study requires special admission as explained below. Contact the Dental Hygiene Department on the Dunwoody Campus for additional information and an application. All professional courses are only offered during the day.
