LIFE & HEALTH SCIENCES
To provide a dynamic learning environment that facilitates diverse educational opportunities reflective of current theory and practice in the preparation of entry-level dental hygienists. Learning experiences are designed to engage students in the acquisition of knowledge and skills, and in a development process that includes assuming responsibility for professional judgment and ethical conduct in the provision of patient centered care.
The goal as dental hygiene educators is to provide students with a foundation of knowledge and skills through the facilitation of quality learning experiences. The Dental Hygiene Program at Sinclair Community College prepares students who are able to assess, diagnose, plan, implement, evaluate and document contemporary dental hygiene care. Additionally, the program strives to motivate students to become community-minded citizens and life-long learners.
