The dental hygiene program at Baker College, part of the Health Sciences Division, provides an education based in the social, behavioral, and biological sciences. The goal of the Academic Divisions is to support and carry out the College mission. This goal is accomplished by developing and delivering curriculum and fulfilling the three components of instruction, learning and assessment. Emphasis will be put on developmental education/advising, curriculum delivery, faculty and staff training, and outcomes.
The major emphasis of dental hygiene education is a preventive approach to dental disease. Committed faculty, excellent clinical facilities and adherence to the goals and objectives set forth for the students, facilitate positive direction in both the attainment of knowledge and the development of responsible and competent dental hygienists.
Baker College dental hygiene faculty recognize the need for continued review of the curriculum as new knowledge and technology emerge.
