As the career of dental hygiene evolves, new pathways for alternative settings emerge. Many of these pathways involve the field of dental public health. A career in dental public health can be immensely satisfying and rewarding. This course will direct the learner to carefully consider what type of alternative setting is preferred and to determine if he/she has the correct skills necessary for this type of career.
Please note: This course is designed to present avenues to pursue when considering a position in dental public health. You will gain far more from this course by spending time on the suggested Internet activities. The value of the course decreases if the Internet activities are not completed.
