Course Description: Leaders in dental hygiene education, who represent a variety of roles, were selected for this panel to share their unique perspectives. Educators and those interested in education will be able to hear how these leaders continue to deal with the impact of COVID 19 at their institutions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the lessons learned from COVID 19 including what could have been done differently to change the course of the response of dental hygiene students and practitioners to this pandemic.
  • Discuss curriculum changes that are needed so students are empowered to embrace the role of independent licensed health care providers and critical thinkers.
