Missouri College Brings new Dental Hygiene Program to Saint Louis

College will be home to dental clinic that will provide services to all segments of the population

ST. Louis, MO -- Missouri College will be opening the doors of its Dental Hygiene Education program in March. Accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA), the establishment of this program marks a breakthrough for Missouri College. This program launch comes on the heels of Missouri College's move to its new location at the Meridian at Brentwood and includes the construction of a new dental clinic. The five-semester dental hygiene program will be supported by a comprehensive and interdisciplinary plan of studies.

"This is outstanding news for the community of St. Louis. The potential this program has to increase educational opportunities for students interested in careers in oral health are immense," said Mr. Karl Petersen, President of Missouri College. "This new initiative builds on the expertise of the College's faculty and staff and the new resources allocated to make this program a reality."

A financial investment from Career Education Corporation (the parent company of Missouri College) of more than $800,000 will ensure the operation and sustainability of the program that will provide oral health education and healthcare services for the greater-Saint Louis area. The new program is separate from a Dental Assistant degree program which the College has operated for more than 30 years.

"The program's mission is to meet the tangible needs for dental hygienists in the state of Missouri," said Dr. Hubert Benitez, National Director for Dental Hygiene Programs. "We understand the need of promoting oral health, eliminating health disparities, and building partnerships to enhance education and service. These are the pillars that support our program, and as such, we are committed to serve our community."
