Dental Hygiene Department

At UC Blue Ash College we are proud to offer the largest and one of the most-established Dental Hygiene programs in the state. The program was created with the founding of our college in 1967 and it continues to be the only dental hygiene program offered in the Greater Cincinnati area.

Our growth and success are the result of our ongoing commitment to excellence.  We provide our dental hygiene graduates with the knowledge and skills that meet the roles of the profession as a clinician, change agent, administrator/manager, researcher, educator or patient advocate.
