Dental Hygiene - A.S. Program

 

DO YOU KNOW WHAT A PERSON'S MOUTH REVEALS ABOUT THEM?  DO YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF PROMOTING GOOD HeALTH?

Besides helping someone have a more beautiful smile and fresher breath, a dental hygienist is often the first person encountered in a dental office who may note potential health problems just by looking into a person's mouth!

Inflammation in the mouth may signal inflammation in other parts of the body, including the cardiovascular system; periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease often go hand-in-hand.  A close look into your mouth by a dental hygienist or a dentist may reveal diabetes or pre-diabetes, auto immune disorders, nutritional imbalance, thyroid disorder, inflammatory bowel disease, kidney disease, oral cancer, or a number of other health-related issues.

Dental Hygiene

The faculty at Gulf Coast State College are like family to me now. I learned so much about Dental Hygiene from them. The clinical experiences during the program gave me the skills I needed to become a Registered Dental Hygienist!
