DEH 1800 Clinical Dental Hygiene I

This is the first of four clinical dental hygiene courses. Students begin patient care on relatively non-complex patients in a closely monitored clinical environment. Students apply clinic policies, safety practices, assessment procedures, practice management, radiographic techniques, instrumentation, stain removal, and the application of fluorides learned in pre-clinical courses to create individualized care plans. Instrument sharpening, root planing and biofilm control procedures are included.
