Dental Hygiene - Continuing Education
Dental Hygiene Continuing Education Course Offerings
Please check back for the spring 2018 courses
On July 11, 1996, Bill 7324A was passed by the Senate and the Assembly requiring that every TRIENNIAL registration period, registered dental hygienists must complete a minimum of 24 hours of education, inclusive of the previously required mandatory child abuse and infection control training approved by the State Education Department. Farmingdale State College is an approved provider of continuing education credits in New York State for both dental hygienists and dentists; the American Academy of Dental Hygiene is the approved NYS sponsor.
Infiltration Anesthesia and Nitrous Oxide
The legal change to the Dental Hygiene Practice Act that went into effect as of August 2003 expands the scope of dental hygiene to include infiltration anesthesia and nitrous oxide. The course for this certificate is usually offered in the late spring every calendar year. If you have any interest in attending or questions regarding the next pain management course that will be offered in the spring of 2018, please call our Continuing Education Coordinator, Jessica Kahl, at 631-420-2659.
