Master of Science in Dental Hygiene video transcript

Are you looking to take the next step in your dental hygiene career?

This completely online program focuses on preparing you for a career as a dental hygiene educator through curriculum focused in education and research.

Additionally, the program provides field experiences and individualized education specific to your career goals.

My favorite part of teaching for this program is really seeing students grow while our courses are delivered all online.

I know all of my students faces. I know what they look like, I know what they sound like.

And we interact in real time through the computer in several courses in the program.

Our students have had a lot of success once they leave our program, and one thing that we're really proud of is our first cohort that graduated from our program.

Now all have teaching positions in some capacity in dental hygiene programs.

Ohio State's world renowned faculty from the university's College of Dentistry will equip you with a dental hygiene knowledge, educational methodology, and research analysis skills you need.

They'll help you master the theory and practice of laboratory, preclinical, and clinical dental hygiene instruction.

I have always loved and always wanted to come to Ohio State. They have had a wonderful program that I was always interested in.

My favorite part of the degree program is the fact that I'm able to manage my time.

If you have a deadline, you can adjust your weekly schedule accordingly.

And that is very nice to do when you're working full time.

The program can be completed in two years as a full time student or up to five years studying part time.

In addition to classes, you will complete an internship to apply the skills learned from your coursework and a thesis to demonstrate mastery in your research area of interest.

We're developing the educators who will teach the next generation of dental hygienist.

Earning a master's degree will lead to more development and growth opportunities for our graduates.

We are proud to help them in the next steps of their career.
