NYU offers the only dental hygiene programs housed within a dental college in New York State. This gives students the opportunity to learn in integrated clinical settings alongside dental students, as well as with faculty members from dental hygiene, dentistry, and dental specialty areas in state-of-the-art facilities that attract the largest, most diverse patient population in the nation. Community-based rotations provides students with valuable clinical experience while helping to educate patients about the importance of oral health and promoting healthy habits.

The advanced standing track is a new pathway within NYU’s overall dental hygiene program, which is accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation. Students will earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in dental hygiene in the 12-month program.

The advanced standing dental hygiene track for internationally trained dentists is accepting applications for its first class, which will begin in spring 2020. For more information and to apply, visit the Dental Hygiene Program website.
