Dental Hygiene Programs

The Detroit Mercy Dental Hygiene programs are uniquely housed within the School of Dentistry, providing unique and collaborative learning opportunities for students.  Not only are courses taught by both dental hygiene and dental faculty, but students from each program learn together in classes and clinics. Our clinically-oriented and community-focused curriculum fosters superb critical thinking abilities, practical skills, and cultural sensitivity to graduate practice-ready oral health professionals and prepares students for their desired career paths.

The Dental Hygiene Program at the School of Dentistry is accredited by the American Dental Association's Commission on Dental Accreditation.
