University of Bridgeport Dental Hygiene (A.S.) Degree

A.S. Degree in Dental Hygiene Program Details

The two-year curriculum of the Fones School combines courses from the University of Bridgeport’s College of Undergraduate and Graduate Studies and the Fones School of Dental Hygiene to offer a broad educational preparation. In addition to basic and dental science theory, the program provides education in prevention service and dental health education.

Dental Hygiene instruments and supplies are issued through the Fones School. These items are distributed throughout the clinical phase of the curriculum, the costs of which are included in tuition. During the second year, students receive clinical training not only at the Fones Dental Health Center on campus but also through assignments at clinical and educational facilities of school dental health programs, hospitals, and community agencies. These assignments are directly supervised by Fones faculty. Students may be responsible for their own transportation to community agencies. All courses listed for the Associate and/or Bachelor of Science degree are required for graduation. Dental Hygiene students must earn a grade of “C” in all major courses. Any student who receives a grade of “C-” or below in a course in the major field must obtain a written statement from the Fones School Director specifying the procedure necessary to remedy the deficiency and remain in the major.

Enrollment in the second year is contingent on successfully completing all first year requirements with a cumulative QPR of 2.5. Dental Hygiene clinical courses begin in the fall term. The Associate in Science degree curriculum is open only to full-time Dental Hygiene students. Clinical students are required to submit a physical, dental, and visual acuity report, provide proof of required immunizations and Tuberculin/PPD record, and must maintain certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation for the Health Care Provider.

All admitted students are subject to a background check conducted by an outside agency, Verified Credentials, Inc. All information is maintained confidentially.
