Introduction

Department of Dental Hygiene

Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Dental Hygiene, Cheongju University.

In 2009, the Department of Dental Hygiene began a four-year undergraduate course to foster world-class dental hygienists, under the educational philosophy of Cheongju University, which is "Let's create an advanced world of culture based on practical learning".

Dental hygienists are professionals who are responsible for oral health education, preventive dental treatment, dental cooperation and management to improve oral health of the people. As the quality of life is emphasized along with the development of society, people's interest in oral health is increasing. In addition, the specialization of dental fields also requires the cultivation of dental hygienists with professional and leadership to contribute to the development of oral health.

The Department of Dental Hygiene at Cheongju University establishes and operates a long-term departmental development plan and specialization plan. We are dedicated to fostering competent professional dental hygienists by providing the best curriculum, excellent faculty, excellent educational facilities and an efficient clinical practice environment. We also have a graduate school in our department and are preparing for the development of lifelong education programs to provide continuing education and higher education courses for local dental hygienists.

In addition to the vision of Cheongju University, which is the most prestigious university in the central region and a global university, it contributes to the development of domestic and foreign dental hygienist academics by producing excellent human resources not only in the local community but also in the international community. Thank you for your interest and encouragement to our Department of Dental Hygiene at Cheongju University.
