Master of Dental Hygiene (MDH) degree
The University of Tennessee Health Science Center is proud to announce its new Master of Dental Hygiene (MDH) degree. This non-traditional program of post-professional study allows dental hygienists the opportunity to obtain a Master of Dental Hygiene degree while continuing to work. The major focus of the program is to prepare dental hygienists as educators and leaders in the dental hygiene profession. Graduates may also be qualified to work in areas such as public health, private-not-for-profit agencies, and oral health product marketing and development. It is expected that this program will attract a wide audience due to its unique characteristics. The distance learning web-mediated design will allow students to earn a graduate degree from their area residence while continuing to work. The flexible curricula design allows for full or part-time enrollment and enables students to focus in their area of interest. Students are only required to be on-campus one week each summer. With faculty approval, field experience courses and practicum can be completed in the students' state of residence. UTHSC is planning to enroll students in the MDH program beginning August 2006. Interested individuals should contact Dr. Susan Mansfield at smansfield@utmem.edu.
