Is There Someone You'd Like to Help
to Pursue a Career in Dental Hygiene?
Is there someone you know -- maybe your own dental assistant -- who you think has the potential to become a dental hygienist? The majority of applicants tell us that they became interested in a career in dental hygiene based on positive experiences with their own dentist or by having worked in a dental practice, often as a dental assistant. NYUCD offers flexible programs in dental hygiene: a two-year Associate in Applied Science degree in preparation for licensure, which can also be done in three years of day courses or nine semesters of evening courses, plus a four-year Bachelor of Science degree program, which includes both traditional and advanced courses. In gratitude for your help, we will be pleased to recommend your practice to our graduates as an employment opportunity. To recommend an applicant, please call Professor Lisa Stefanou, Director of Dental Hygiene Enrollment Services, at 212-998-9371.
