Return to: Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC  

The mission of the USC Department of Dental Hygiene is to educate and prepare dental hygiene leaders for careers in a diverse and changing health care environment. Implicit in this is a desire to provide a liberal education as well as outstanding clinical experiences. The baccalaureate dental hygiene program is a combination of dental and dental hygiene sciences, supporting sciences and general education.

The curriculum reflects the core values of the profession in private and public health settings. The program is committed to creating a humanistic, educational environment that will facilitate the development of responsible, ethical, oral health professionals who are sensitive to the patient needs and competent in the dental hygiene process of care.

Educational and clinical services provided by dental hygiene students include dental health education, patient assessment, disease prevention and non-surgical periodontal therapy for a diverse population of patients. The program strives to produce graduates who will advance the profession of dental hygiene and improve dental health care through evidence-based research and scholarly activities. Finally, graduates are competent in self-assessment and scientific methodology in preparation for lifelong learning.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene requires two academic years of pre-dental hygiene courses followed by two additional years of enrollment in the dental hygiene program.

Admission

Two applications are required, one for the USC Undergraduate Admission Office and one for the School of Dentistry. See the Undergraduate Education Admission  section of this catalogue.

Admission to the dental hygiene program of the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC is granted through the Office of Dental Admissions that receives and processes all applications, evaluates credentials and mails letters of acceptance to applicants who qualify for entrance. Because of the university’s selective admissions policy and limited enrollment, only those applicants are accepted who present evidence of intellectual promise and strong personal qualifications, including good moral character and sound health. Prior to enrollment, accepted students must provide evidence of sound health and meet the school’s health requirements. (Before registration, the Student Health Service form, signed by the applicant’s attending physician, must be filed with the Engemann Student Health Center.)

Application Procedure:

The American Dental Education Association Dental Hygiene Centralized Application Service (ADEA DHCAS) is the centralized application service for applicants to dental hygiene programs.

USC's School of Dentistry is a learning facility, so patients must qualify for dental treatment and should set aside extra time for their appointments. As with any dental facility, the cost should be discussed prior to receiving treatment. USCSD offers a plethora of services, including dental exams, X-rays, restorative dentistry services, gum disease treatment, oral surgery, orthodontics and other specialty treatments. USC's dental school also offers pediatric care for children and accepts patients with special needs.

USC encourages its students to give back to their communities. As a caring institution with a focus on health care, it offers educational outreach programs and dental clinics for those who can't afford dental care. The USC School of Dentistry also has a mobile unit that provides free preventive dentistry services for Los Angeles inner-city children.

Pre-Dental

The Dental Admission Test (DAT) is comprised exclusively of multiple-choice test items and consists of four sections: Survey of the Natural Sciences, Perceptual Ability, Reading Comprehension and Quantitative Reasoning.

DAT results are reported in terms of scale scores. Scores used in the testing program range from 1 to 30. There are no passing or failing scores; a scale score of 18 typically signifies average performance on a national basis.

The minimum core of courses that are needed before the DAT is taken are: 
English 101+102 
Mathematics 126+127 (Precalculus I & II) 
Biology 101+102 
Chemistry 111+112 
Chemistry 331+332 (Organic Chemistry) 
Physics 201+202 or Physics 211+212

This core of courses plus eight additional hours in science electives also represent the required pre-dental courses for the Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine.

Pre-dental students must start their math and chemistry sequences as soon as possible in order to take the DAT exam at the appropriate time. Students must have organic chemistry and physics completed by the end of the junior year, as the DAT exam should be taken the spring semester of the junior year (preferred) or no later than the fall semester of the senior year.

More information on the dentistry profession can be found at the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
