Practice your skills in the field

The concentrated practicum is 75 hours and decided among the course instructor, student, and practicum site. The work activities are structured based on student interest and decided learning outcomes. The practicum site facilitator and the course instructor decide on the appropriate evaluation mechanism for the student. Agreements are made between the practicum site and the Fones School of Dental Hygiene.

University of Bridgeport’s Fones School of Dental Hygiene has over 100 facilities currently utilized for the B.S. Degree in Dental Hygiene internship course requirement. New sites are added each year. The master’s degree program utilizes these facilities and accepts others as student interest and geographical locations increase.

Students pursue their concentrated practicum in the setting that aligns best with their goals, such as:

  • Student teaching in clinical, laboratory, and didactic settings
