Summary

Forty-seven (51.1 percent) of the 92 graduates of the Dental Hygiene program completed a questionnaire designed to provide feed-back information concerning activities of program graduates. Results indicated that: (1) Practically all graduates were employed as Dental Hygienists, with most sharing their time among two or more offices; (2) Daily salary averaged $75 to $90 depending upon length of employment and types of services rendered; (3) About half the graduates received a variety of fringe benefits, the most common being dental services; (4) Number of patients seen per day ranged from four to twenty, averaging about ten; (5) Most graduates participated in continuing education courses following their graduation, but many of these courses were brief one-day or conference type endeavors; (6) Most were employed only in general dental hygiene work--about 10 percent also worked in periodontic and pedodontic areas, with one each working in orthodontic, geriatric, and oral surgery clinic areas; (7) Over 90 percent performed the tasks of scaling-root planing, polishing, and plaque control--over 80 percent sharpened instruments, made bite-wing radiographs, or performed ultra-sonic scaling; (8) Most felt competent in the three tasks performed by over 90 percent of them--they felt least competent in certain types of X-ray work and curettage.
