Dental hygienists assess patients for signs of oral diseases such as gingivitis, expose dental radiographs, clean teeth, and provide other preventive dental care. They also educate patients on ways to improve and maintain good oral health. Dental hygiene services are a treatment to maintain or increase the overall health, well-being, and functional outcomes for individuals experiencing dental disease.
The Regis College Dental Hygiene program (formerly the Mount Ida Dental Hygiene Program) has exceptional board completion and job placement rates. RDH licensure requires numerous written and clinical state and federal examinations and historically Regis College dental hygiene students have been highly successful.
The program is such a unique one in the area in that it allows students to work in the dental hygiene field while enhancing their education.Denise Tetreault, RDH MEd – Department Chair, Dental Hygiene
