Dental Hygiene Current Students

The Dental Hygiene program at Kirkwood prepares students to make a big difference with dental patients. As a dental hygienist, you will help prevent, detect, and treat diseases of the mouth. On their way to completing this program, current students should stay up to date on orientation, compliance guidelines, and board examinations details. 

Keep these important requirements straight by reviewing the below information for current students in the Dental Hygiene program.
