The University of Wisconsin, Madison, has partnered with dental hygenist school The Dental Hygiene Institute (THI) to offer a new program that will make it easier for you to get the best dental care possible.
The dental hygiene school will be partnering with the UW in an effort to make dental hygiene more affordable and accessible for people of all incomes, races, and backgrounds.
In its partnership with THI, UW dental students and faculty will be able to get a free appointment with a dentist, which will allow them to get started on their dental hygiene journey.
“It’s important for people to have access to quality dental care,” said Dr. Sarah Kuehl, dean of the School of Dentistry.
“Our dental students are already able to afford the costs of dental insurance, but this program will allow dental hypos to start saving dental care for people that otherwise would not have dental insurance.”
The dental hygiene program will help make dental health care more affordable for people who are at the bottom of the food chain.
“Kuehl said dental hygonists in the program will be offered free, one-on-one, one on-site consultations with students to provide guidance and support.
The first group of students to have their dental hygeines assigned will be in the fall of 2019, and Kuehls goal is to see the program expanded to all dental schools across the country.”
In addition to the free dental hygiene appointment, the dental hygiene program will also include a number of other educational resources for students and dental hygs. “
Dental hygens can be in many different settings and the need for this program is often seen among underserved populations.”THI’s dental hygiene programs are a great way for students to learn more about dental hygiene and get the training they need to start their own practice, while at the same time being able to earn some money to help pay for dental care.
“In addition to the free dental hygiene appointment, the dental hygiene program will also include a number of other educational resources for students and dental hygs.
Students will receive a free printable whitepaper on dental hygiene from THI that includes information on how to prevent cavities, provide preventive dental care, and improve the appearance of teeth.
The paper also includes information about preventive dentistry and the importance of having a hygeneist who is able to provide the best possible care.
Students who are selected will be required to enroll in a three-day intensive program of dental hygiene training, and will then be able apply for a permanent appointment with their dental therapist.
The dental hyger is an individual who has an established practice, is trained and certified by a dentist or dentist assistant, and has an individualized program.
Students in the dental hyga program will get the opportunity to be part of the team that will be providing guidance and mentoring to dental hygo students, which could help ensure that the dental Hygo students are able to learn about the best practices of dental hygel, how to improve their oral health, and what to expect when it comes time to practice.THI, located at 1125 West 7th Street, is a nonprofit dental health professional organization with more than 150 members across the United States and Canada.
The school is open to the public and serves students in grades 6-12.
