Dental Hygiene (DH)

Dental hygienists screen patients for oral diseases such as gingivitis, perform teeth cleanings, and provide other preventative dental hygiene care. They also educate patients on ways to improve and maintain good oral health. UH Maui College’s Dental Hygiene Program prepares students for this well-paid career track, and can be completed in 2 years* (five full-time semesters including one summer session).
