A strong component of the Dental Hygiene Program is the service that UDMSD delivers to the outside community. As part of the School's mission "to provide quality dental care to our patients and to serve as a source of information and education to the community", dental hygiene students provide care at various external locations treating patients that are medically, mentally, emotionally, and periodontally compromised.
Listed below are some of the activities UDMSD dental hygiene students participate in throughout their educational careers:
Elementary school dental health education presentations
Special-needs population dental health education presentations
