Goodwin’s Dental Hygiene Program Gaining Attention and Accreditation
Goodwin College is pleased to announce that the new Dental Hygiene program has received accreditation from the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) as of Thursday, February 13. The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education.
With its blend of traditional classroom and online learning, Goodwin’s Dental Hygiene Associate Degree program has been gaining attention across the state and in the national media. This innovative program, designed specifically to meet the needs and schedules of Goodwin students, is slated to open in May 2014.
Carmen Hufcut, Director of the Dental Hygiene program, oversees its overall development and academic integrity. With more than 20 years of experience in the field and a thorough understanding of Goodwin’s student population, Hufcut was the perfect fit for this new position. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Hufcut learned English as she went through college, and — like many of our students —became the first in her family to earn a degree.
As enrollment for May progresses and Hufcut’s leadership sets the stage for a successful inaugural session, the program is attracting attention, including an article in the spring 2014 dental industry publication Incisal Edge Magazine. Click here to view.
