Welcome to the Wayne County Community College District’s Dental Hygiene Department

Wayne County Community College District’s Dental Hygiene program strives to create a learning environment in which each graduate is instilled with the knowledge, skills and values to provide dental hygiene care to patients, as well as a sense of responsibility to self, the community and the profession. The curriculum for dental hygiene students provides a progression of knowledge and skills as demonstrated by competencies which are the abilities required by the new dental hygiene graduate to enter the healthcare field as competent entry-level oral health care providers.

The Professional Track Program is two years in length with a limited number of openings available each year. Prior to acceptance into the Professional Track, required prerequisite college courses must be completed.  The program begins each fall semester with a cohort of students and upon successful completion of the program, an Associate of Science Degree is awarded by the college.

We welcome your interest in the dental hygiene program and invite you to stop by the college and visit our dental clinic, or better yet, become a patient and learn more about the program. Appointments may be made by calling (313) 943-4010.

DENTAL HYGIENE MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Dental Hygiene Program is to develop the knowledge, skills and ethical behaviors of its students.  The program will strive to provide a high quality, low cost education in a multi-cultural community.

Students will receive a broad educational experience which emphasizes communication skills, research knowledge, critical thinking, psychosocial concepts, cultural awareness, service learning, ethical behaviors and professionalism.

To achieve this mission, the program is committed to preparing students to address the oral healthcare needs of the community by providing affordable, high quality patient centered care to diverse patient populations in a variety of healthcare settings as well as participating in community health promotion projects.
