Helpful information

Check videos of professor Fink to help understand material. I love the way he explained. I used his lecture videos for A&PII, it’s very helpful. Enjoy!

Class of 2017

Welcome to the dental hygiene program   :)

Each fall brings back memories of my first day of Dental Hygiene school over 20 years ago.  I was an adult with four children returning to school after 21 years – Very Scary!!!  Many doubts and fears running through my head all asking the question, “Can I do this?”

The answer is obvious now, yes I could and yes I did.  AND SO CAN YOU. 


  • Setting a REALISTIC study schedule.  Taking a realistic look at what was expected of me both at home and at school  (which included eating and sleeping).
  • Then came the discipline which meant that I had to stick to the schedule (as best as possible – revising as I went along)
  • DOING THE WORK – staying on top of EVERYTHING (it’s really tough to ‘catch up’)
  • ASKING QUESTIONS when confused or not sure
  • SEEKING HELP when in trouble.

Ask any dental hygienist you may know how they succeeded and I am sure that you will find that they followed a very similar formula.

I wish only the best for all of you.  Remember, the faculty is there is help and support you throughout these 2 years, help us to help you!

See you in class,                                                                                                                                    Professor Maria Bilello
