Planning an Education Program for Dental Hygienists.
Bruce, Harry W.; And Others
Intended for adaptation to local situations, the handbook was prepared to assist interested groups to determine whether a dental hygiene educational program is needed and feasible, and to supply basic guidelines for planning. The introduction deals with dental hygiene in preventive dentistry and the historical development of educational programs. "The Feasibility of Establishing a Program" concerns the advisory committee, need survey, parent institution, financial support, program director, faculty, students, patients, and sources of technical assistance. "Planning the Program" treats established patterns of preparation, objectives and the planning timetable, administrative policies, curriculum design, personnel required, student recruitment, public information, admission requirements, accreditation, and licensure. "Initial Expense and Annual Operation" covers costs connected with teaching facilities, equipment, furnishings, teaching aids, teaching materials, and supplies, reference materials, salaries, fringe benefits, laundry, and faculty travel. Development of a hypothetical dental hygiene program is outlined. Included in the appendix are curriculum and equipment outlines, including library acquisitions, and a listing of addresses of associations and publishers. (JK)
