Dental Hygiene Current Students

[[Element: ]]

The Dental Hygiene program at Kirkwood prepares students to make a big difference with dental patients. As a dental hygienist, you will help prevent, detect, and treat diseases of the mouth. On their way to completing this program, current students should stay up to date on orientation, compliance guidelines, and board examinations details.

Keep these important requirements straight by reviewing the below information for current students in the Dental Hygiene program.

Technical Program Orientation

Please note the Technical Orientation for the Dental Hygiene program will be held in two sessions. Students will be required to attend a zoom session on July 28, 2021, from 1 – 3 p.m. In addition to the zoom session, students will need to attend an in-person clinic session at the U of I Dental College. Students can choose either July 30, 2021, or August 4, 2021. Both sessions will be from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. Attendance for the Dental Hygiene Technical orientation is mandatory.

Please call Allied Health at 319-398-5566 to schedule your session. Each session will be limited to 12 students and is first come first serve. If the session you prefer is full when you call to sign up you will need to attend the other session.

Please remember
Students DO NOT have to bring all compliance documents with them to Orientation. Compliance will be introduced at Orientation.
