The American Dental Hygienists' Association (ADHA) and the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) supported the notion that the baccalaureate degree should be the entry-level degree for the dental hygiene profession. There was also clear evidence that there was a national shortage of baccalaureate-earned-minimum dental hygiene educators. Fourteen Florida dental hygiene program directors (seven state college, seven community college) completed a survey to obtain data on the status of dental hygiene faculty shortages in Florida and perceptions on possible future educational needs for faculty. This study examined whether there were any differences in responses according to institutional setting. All three null hypotheses were rejected due to there being no statistically significant differences in all fourteen Florida dental hygiene program directors' responses to the survey.
