Maintaining Healthy Smiles

Our Dental Hygiene program will teach you how to play a critical role as part of a dental health care team that educates and treats patients.

This is the only accredited Dental Hygiene program in Philadelphia, through which you will use state-of-the-art equipment; have access to faculty who are experts in the dental hygiene profession; benefit from supervised, hands-on experience with patients; and receive excellent preparation for taking the required exams for licensing and certification.
