In 2019, Plaza College became New York’s first American Dental Association (ADA) Accredited Dental Hygiene Program in over a quarter century.
Plaza College dental hygienist students work under dentists to conduct full oral cleanings, which constitutes the majority of a routine visit, along with taking x-rays, screening for oral cancer, fluoride treatment, providing mouth guards and scaling and polishing the teeth.
Each dental hygienist provides an analysis of each patient’s oral health, before consulting with the dentist on suggested actions. On a typical day a dental hygienist will see between 8-12 patients. Students in the program see children, adolescents and adults, preparing them to work in pediatric or adult dental clinics when they graduate.
