UCSF Senate Faculty Vote to Endorse the Proposed MS in Dental Hygiene

The UCSF School of Dentistry seeks to establish a new multidisciplinary curriculum of graduate study leading to a Master of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene (MS). Graduates will be prepared to engage in multidisciplinary problem solving related to oral disease prevention and health promotion across the lifespan to improve the oral health of varied populations. Graduates will be prepared to assume roles in education and research collaboration in academic and public health settings and in the oral healthcare industry. After this MS degree is established, a DrDH program will be proposed with a focus on dental hygiene research related to oral disease prevention and health promotion.
