Registered dental hygienists are licensed clinicians who work under the direction and supervision of a licensed dentist to provide preventive and therapeutic services for the control of oral diseases.
The Sacramento City College Dental Hygiene program is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. For more detailed information related to the program, students should consult the current version of the Dental Hygiene Program Handbook (PDF).
The Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene programs hold information sessions on campus early in the semester to answer questions about each program. Check back soon - details about the next scheduled session will be available here at the beginning of each semester.
