About the course
This three-year Ontario College Advanced Diploma program, delivered over two and one-half years, is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC). Students practise primary oral healthcare in their roles as preventive specialists. As members of a self-regulated profession, dental hygienists are responsible to the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario for their practice decisions. Program emphasis is on preparing graduates to function effectively within a collaborative relationship which includes the client, community and other healthcare providers. Students learn to provide dental hygiene care in a professional manner through a variety of learning experiences. Students participate in seminars, case presentations and community health practicums. Clinically, students progress from manikins to supervised provision of self-initiated comprehensive dental hygiene care for clients presenting with diverse and complicated oral health needs. Throughout the program, students acquire knowledge which allows them to experience the role of the dental hygienist as researcher, advocate, educator, administrator, clinician and health promoter.

Barrydowne College is a re-engagement school in partnership with Cambrian College. This secondary school within a college supports students ages 18 to 21 who would benefit from a small class learning environment and who have not been successful in a regular secondary school. The setting, with small class sizes and personalized curriculum, allows for a focus on programming designed to meet student needs.
