Welcome to the Great Falls College MSU Dental Hygiene program’s website. We are very proud of this program and thank you for your interest; hopefully the following information will enlighten you about our program and the profession.
Great Falls College MSU dental hygiene program has been in existence since 2002. There are currently 15 seniors and 16 juniors enrolled in the Dental Hygiene Program. Each fall the program accepts 18 students so our program is fairly small. The smallness is advantageous to our students, allowing more individualized attention and a greater amount of hands on experience. Of course, with all advantages there are disadvantages; limited enrollment lends itself to a competitive student selection process.
With an increase in population growth and a greater retention of natural teeth, the access to dental care is more important than ever. Making a commitment to becoming a dental health care professional will not prove to be just a job but a lifelong fulfilling career. Thank you for your interest in our dental hygiene program.
