Dental Hygiene Programs



The Dental Hygiene programs at NYU College of Dentistry provide extraordinary clinical and academic opportunities for students interested in preventive oral healthcare and the promotion of good health. A key member of the healthcare team, the dental hygienist works together with the dentist to meet the oral health needs of patients and thereby improve patients' quality of life.

The Office of Allied Health Programs houses two degree programs, both of which prepare students for careers in dental hygiene: Bachelor of Science (BS) in Dental Hygiene and Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Dental Hygiene. Students have the option to pursue these degree programs through a number of flexible tracks, including the BS Degree Completion track, the AAS Fast Track, and the AAS Advanced Standing track, among others. Learn more about the flexible options available here.

Educational Goals and Mission

The mission of the New York University Dental Hygiene Programs is to partner with students to achieve academic excellence; promote scholarly activity, health promotion, disease prevention and research; to participate in community service; and to offer comprehensive client care, utilizing critical thinking and evidence-based decision making. As goals, the program will prepare a competent dental hygienist, maintain a contemporary dental hygiene program that reflects relevant and current dental hygiene practice, and provide an interdisciplinary integrated curriculum.

The NYU Advantage

Attending the only dental hygiene program housed within a dental college in the state of New York, Dental Hygiene students at the NYU College of Dentistry have the unique opportunity to work in integrated clinical settings alongside DDS students as well as faculty members from dental hygiene, dentistry and specialty areas -- gaining invaluable experiences as they learn the practice of dental hygiene while treating a highly diverse patient population. Academic excellence and clinical expertise are further supported by rotations through specialty areas (orthodontics, periodontics, prosthodontics, implant dentistry, and pediatric dentistry), preparing students through a comprehensive and challenging education.

Our Campus, in the City that Never Sleeps

NYU College of Dentistry's campus spans three buildings along First Avenue in Manhattan — from East 24th Street to East 26th Street — in the heart of the NYU health sciences corridor. The clinical treatment areas of the NYU Dental Center are in the connected Schwartz and Weissman buildings, at 345 E. 24th Street and 421 First Avenue, respectively. The NYU Interprofessional Building at 433 First Avenue houses the NYU Dentistry Student Services suite, the Learning Commons, the Departments of Biomaterials and of Epidemiology & Health Promotion, several classrooms, and casual gathering spaces. The NYU Meyers College of Nursing and the NYU Tandon Bioengineering Institute are also housed in the Interprofessional Building.
