Course description

The role of Dental Hygienists as healthcare workers is now broadly acknowledged in public facilities and especially in private practices, where they provide for the populations' wellness needs: they mainly work in the area of oral disease prevention, although they also help patients achieve an aesthetically beautiful and healthy smile, thus contributing not only to their physical, but also to their psychological and social wellbeing.

The degree programme provides students with a suitable grounding in core subjects, allowing them to understand the main issues underlying the pathological processes that arise in the development, adult and geriatric ages, and that the Hygienist is asked to diagnose and treat.

Practical training as an essential and qualifying part of this job-oriented programme: special attention is therefore attached to workshops and clinical placements where students become fully proficient in all the skills needed and are ready to be immediately hired after graduating.

Lessons are held in Italian.
