About the Fones School of Dental Hygiene
Established in 1949 and accredited since 1953, the Fones School of Dental Hygiene at the University of Bridgeport is the first school of dental hygiene in CT - and the world. It is in full accordance with the principles established by the Commission on Dental Accreditation, a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council on Post-Secondary Accreditation and the United States Department of Education.
Graduates are eligible for national, regional, and state examinations.
The United States Department of Education (USDE) procedures require accrediting agencies to provide an opportunity for third-party comment, either in writing or at a public hearing with respect to institutions or programs scheduled for review. The University of Bridgeport is scheduled for a site visit by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) on October 21-22, 2021. Learn more about third party comments at the link below.
