Dental Hygienists

A Registered Dental Hygienist must complete a two year, full time dental hygiene program from an accredited community college or a university to obtain a certificate in dental hygiene. A hygienist must pass a clinical exam and a written exam to be licensed in the State of Michigan. Our hygienists are remarkably skilled at interacting with children of all age groups.
