Dental Hygiene Students Achieve 100 Percent on National Exam
All nine students in this year’s South Florida Community College Dental Hygiene program’s graduating class have passed the written Dental Hygiene National Board Exam. This continues the exceptional trend of SFCC’s dental hygiene students achieving a 100 percent passing rate on the exam.
By passing the written Dental Hygiene National Board Exam, prospective dental hygienists become eligible to sit for the Florida Dental Hygiene Board Exam, which requires them to demonstrate their skills on a patient. Once they pass the Florida Dental Hygiene Board Exam they become licensed to work as dental hygienists.
“Not all programs can boast that their students have a 100 percent passing rate,” said Becky Sroda, director, Allied Health. “I believe it is because of the high quality instruction they receive from our instructors in their prerequisite and program courses at SFCC that we are able to achieve this every year.”
