2 THE DENTAL SCIENCES DEPARTMENT DENTAL HYGIENE PROGRAM The Dental Hygiene program was established in January 1998 and is fully accredited by the American Dental Association's Commission on Dental Accreditation. This program is an Associate Degree program with 5 semesters of course work. Students graduating from this program are eligible to take national and clinical board examinations. Once these are completed, the dental hygienist will be licensed and recognized as a Registered Dental Hygienist. Dental Hygienists are the only other licensed professional in the dental office. They are qualified to evaluate patient medical histories, take and record blood pressure, chart conditions of periodontal disease and decay for diagnosis by the dentist, conduct oral cancer screening examinations, educate the patient on the latest techniques of oral home care, and perform a thorough cleaning of the patients' teeth. The dental hygienist is also qualified to administer infiltration anesthesia, apply sealants and fluoride for the prevention of decay, expose and develop radiographs, polish dental restorations, provide nutritional counseling for dental patients, and fabricate whitening trays for the tooth whitening process. Students receive their education in a state-of-the-art dental facility, where the latest treatment modalities and infection control measures are practiced. The students treat patients under the direct supervision of licensed dentists and hygienists in the on-site dental clinic that is open to the public. Students wishing to enter the dental hygiene program must have completed certain prerequisite courses prior to admission. EXPANDED DUTY DENTAL ASSISTING PROGRAM The Expanded Duty Dental Assisting program was established August 1999 and is also fully accredited under the American Dental Association's Commission on Dental Accreditation. The program is a one-year diploma program with 3 semesters of course work. Students receive their education in the same dental facility as the dental students. Area dental offices participate in the office rotation portion of the curriculum by allowing students to observe and work in their offices. Students need a high school diploma or a GED to apply for admission; however, it is strongly recommended that the students complete the general education courses within the curriculum prior to entering the program. Appropriate scores on the College entrance exam are required for admission to the program. Expanded Duty Dental Assisting students have the opportunity to take a certification examination, and upon successful completion, will receive the title of Certified Dental Assistant. The majority of the dental assisting graduates are employed in private dental offices within the community, while some of the students have continued their education in the dental hygiene program. Information Packet Page 2

3 Expanded Duty Dental Assistants are responsible for assisting the dentist with a variety of treatment procedures, taking and developing radiographs (x-rays), taking impressions to make study models of patients' teeth, instructing patients in appropriate oral hygiene techniques for optimal oral health, and making patients feel comfortable during dental visits. As a graduate of an accredited program, dental assistants are also able to apply sealants and fluoride for the prevention of decay.

19 RISKS OF A DENTAL HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL As part of the clinical education in the program, dental hygiene students will be working with sharp instruments as well as needles when administering infiltration anesthesia. Treatment with these instruments is in an environment of human saliva and blood. There is a slight risk of an instrument/needle stick during clinical procedures; as well as a risk of exposure to bloodborne diseases, such as HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. Although there are no documented cases of the occupational spread of HIV to dental workers, students enrolled in the Dental Hygiene Program are at a slight risk of exposure to blood and body fluids and the potential does exist for transmission of bloodborne and other infectious diseases, such as Hepatitis B and C and HIV/AIDS, during patient treatment. The risk of HIV and Hepatitis C transmission from dental patients to members of the dental team is very low. However, there is some small potential for this to occur. The Americans with Disabilities Act forbids discrimination against patients with HIV; therefore, students are required to treat all patients assigned, regardless of the disease state of the patient. The risk for Hepatitis B is much higher and students are required to have the vaccine series prior to patient/student treatment or sign a declination form for not taking the vaccine. (These forms are included in the Personal Medical Form). Unfortunately, there is no vaccine for Hepatitis C. All students will receive appropriate education on the Bloodborne Standards and Infection Control (per OSHA and CDC guidelines) utilized in the treatment of dental patients. Students will be tested on this material and must demonstrate laboratory and clinical competency prior to patient treatment. Students will be expected to provide services for patients with bloodborne/infectious diseases as part of the routine clinical experiences. Information Packet Page 19

20 LICENSURE REQUIREMENTS According to the State Board of Dentistry Rules and Regulation # , any person convicted of a felony or other crime involving moral turpitude or controlled substance may not be granted a license to practice dental hygiene in the State of South Carolina even if the dental hygiene curriculum is successfully completed. Questions regarding this regulation can be directed to the South Carolina State Board of Dentistry, Koger Office Park, Kingstree Building, 110 Centerview Drive, Suite 306, Columbia, SC or telephone The South Carolina Board of Dentistry will not issue a dental hygiene license unless the candidate possesses a VALID SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER!
