As a community service, the Dental Hygiene Department provides a low cost Dental Clinic. The Dental Hygiene program is committed to providing their patients with the best patient-centered treatment possible; while providing our students with an excellent learning experience.

The newly created Center for Assistive and Rehabilitative Technology is a collaboration of community partners and the College.  The center’s mission is to “To help children and adults with disabilities enhance their lives, increase their independence and productivity, and gain greater social inclusion through the use of leading-edge assistive technology”.

Please note that admissions to our health professions programs are competitive, therefore, every year we have more applicants than the number of seats available in the programs. Unfortunately, not everybody can be accepted.  Before you apply, please make sure you understand exactly what’s required by visiting the Admissions web site and by reading the Instructions for Health Professions Applicants.  You will also want to visit the individual departmental web sites to read the specific admissions process and policies.  If you have additional questions, or don’t understand something that’s required, you should contact the Department Chair for clarification.

Thank you for your interest in our Health Professions programs.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
