Dental Hygiene Program

Change the World, One Smile at a Time

As an integral member of the dental team, dental hygienists work directly with patients by cleaning teeth, examining patients for oral diseases, taking x-rays, and providing additional dental care.

The Blinn College Dental Hygiene Program is a competitive-entry program accepting 14 students each Fall semester. Upon satisfactory completion of this two-year program, students earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Dental Hygiene and are eligible to take the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination and a regional/state clinical board examination.

In addition to the Dental Hygiene Program, Blinn offers its own dental hygiene clinic to the community. Services are provided by dental hygiene students under the supervision of a general dentist and dental hygiene faculty, all of whom are licensed in the State of Texas.

The Blinn College District Dental Hygiene Program (Program) meets college, state, regional and national requirements. At the national level, the accrediting body is the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation (ADA CODA/Commission). The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education and its scope encompasses dental programs, advanced dental programs, and allied dental education like dental hygiene. The Program in Dental Hygiene has been granted the accreditation status of approval without reporting requirements by the Commission on Dental Accreditation based on the 2013 Program review. The next Program site visit by the Commission is scheduled to occur in 2020.

The ADA CODA will accept comments and complaints about our Program. The Commission will consider only formal, written, signed complaints.  Unsigned complaints will be considered "anonymous complaints" and oral complaints will not be considered. Anonymous comments/complaints may be received at any time and will be added to the respective program's file for evaluation during the program's next scheduled accreditation site visit. An appropriate complaint is one that directly addresses a program's compliance with the Commission's standards, policies and procedures.
