UTHSC COD in Memphis, TN, the south’s oldest dental college, is expanding its physical footprint, its academic focus, its clinical reach and its community outreach.
In 2012, OU COD underwent a considerable change in curriculum. With the focus on patient care, OU COD integrated a new comprehensive care program into its current clinical education. This fall, the final piece of the puzzle went into effect.
The dental clinic at the Houston Community College Coleman College for Health Professions was instituted in 2010 when the Commission on Dental Accreditation approved the HCC dental hygiene program. Since then, it has become a valuable component of program.
At Miami Dade College, diversity and inclusion begin with faculty. The dental hygiene students also reflect the program’s commitment to diversity and opportunity. Both are encouraged to use their backgrounds as a strength and learn to appreciate each other and their contributions.
