The Dental Hygiene programs at NYU College of Dentistry provide extraordinary clinical and academic opportunities for students interested in preventive oral healthcare and the promotion of good health. A key member of the healthcare team, the dental hygienist works together with the dentist to meet the oral health needs of patients and thereby improve patients' quality of life.
There are major advantages to earning your dental hygiene degree at NYU. Attending the only dental hygiene program housed within a dental college in the state of New York, Dental Hygiene students at the NYU College of Dentistry have the unique opportunity to work in integrated clinical settings alongside DDS students as well as faculty members from dental hygiene, dentistry and specialty areas -- gaining invaluable experiences as they learn the practice of dental hygiene while working on a highly diverse patient population. Academic excellence and clinical expertise are further supported by rotations through specialty areas (orthodontics, periodontics, prosthodontics, implant dentistry, and pediatric dentistry), preparing students through a comprehensive and challenging education. The value and prestige associated with being an NYU graduate have never been greater. As the holder of an NYU degree, you will have a credential that sets you apart from others.
The Office of Allied Health Programs houses two degree programs, both of which prepare students for careers in dental hygiene:
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Dental Hygiene
Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) in Dental Hygiene
