The mission of the BCC Dental Hygiene Program is to prepare you to begin your professional dental hygiene practice upon graduation.
You will develop the necessary knowledge, skills, and judgment through a variety of experiences in both the classroom and clinic. In both settings, excellence is encouraged and quality patient care is achieved.
Faculty members will encourage you to be self-directed in your learning and to establish high standards of personal and professional excellence. The development of independent critical thinking is also stressed, creating a collaborative process in which faculty members, students, and patients participate.
