Dental Hygiene Program

Dental Hygiene Program

 

Did you know that Lorain County Community College is home to a dental hygiene program?

In the mid 1990s, the Lorain County Dental Community took an active role in the assessment process required to document the need to establish a new dental hygiene program in Ohio at LCCC.  In addition, the Lorain Dental Society pledged funding towards the cost of the dental hygiene program.

In 1996, the Ohio Board of Regents approved the opening of the Dental Hygiene program and in 1999 LCCC graduated its first class of Dental Hygienists.  “From an educational standpoint,” said Sue Leiken, director of the program, “LCCC is interested in creating an environment where the dental hygiene student will be actively involved in the learning process.” 

The LCCC Dental Hygiene Program includes an on-site clinic.  The clinic houses 12 operatories.  The clinic is open to everyone.  It is not limited to just the LCCC student body and faculty.  All clinic sessions are supervised by a dentist and dental hygiene faculty.  Dental Hygiene students are expected to schedule a patient every clinic session and complete the designated clinical requirements over a period of four semesters, including eight weeks in a summer session.

“The program,” added Leiken, “is serious about graduating students with knowledge necessary to make independent decisions and with the skills required to be a professional health care provider.”
