Posted on 10/10/2012
North Dakota State College of Science dental hygiene students have demonstrated excellence in their field by earning perfect pass rates on this year's National Board Exams and Central Region Dental Testing Exams. The entire NDSCS dental hygiene class of 2012, which consisted of 19 graduates, passed the national exams on their first attempt.
"The dental hygiene program's continued success can be attributed to the dedicated, hard-working students and committed faculty and support staff," said Dr. John Richman, NDSCS president. "The program's state-of-the-art dental clinic and off-campus affiliation sites have also played a vital role in the students' success."
The dental hygiene program is designed to prepare students as professionals in the discipline of dental hygiene. The program consists of classroom, laboratory and clinical experiences over five continuous semesters. Upon completion of the dental hygiene program, students will receive an Associate in Applied Science in Dental Hygiene degree.
