This is a series of 1-hour sessions. Our ability to communicate in so many modes is unique. The text, email, twitter, face book, phone calls, memos, and face to face, etc. frequently become tangled and misunderstood!
The Lunch and Learn sessions will be a place for our voices, our ideas and our suggestions as we increase our own Oral Health Literacy in order to be better ambassadors for ULSD.
This course provides a history of the Dental Hygiene Profession and an overview of the University of Louisville School of Dentistry’s (ULSD) Dental Hygiene Program. The ULSD Dental Hygiene Program is a fully accredited program and provides a comprehensive education to prepare future dental hygienists. Students receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. The four-year program’s curriculum serves as a foundation for life-long learning in oral health care, emphasizing critical thinking skills and comprehensive dental hygiene care in a variety of settings. The University of Louisville’s Dental Hygiene program is the only program in the state that is based within a School of Dentistry.The first 2 years of the program are spent completing the general education and program pre-requisites on the Belknap Campus. Students then apply for admission to the Upper Division, where the junior and senior years are completed at the dental school, focusing on dental hygiene didactic and clinical courses.
By the end of this session, participants in the course will have a better understanding of:
• The history of the dental hygiene profession
• The structure of the ULSD’s Dental Hygiene Program, and
• The structure of the Dental Hygiene Recall Clinic
