The purpose of the Program is to prepare competent dental hygienists to meet the oral health care needs of the public. Students accepted into the Dental Hygiene Program attend general education classes, courses in biological and dental science, and specialized courses in dental hygiene. This knowledge is then applied in the dental hygiene clinic where the students perform dental hygiene services under the supervision and instruction of faculty and the clinical dentist. The Blinn College Dental Hygiene Program is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation and has been granted the accreditation status of approval without reporting requirements. The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education. The Commission on Dental Accreditation can be contacted at (312) 440-4653 or at 211 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611.
