The dental hygiene facilities provide state-of-the-art training for the provision of dental hygiene services. These facilities include a 22-unit clinic, four x-ray machines and processing darkroom, instrument processing area, digital radiography equipment, a paperless office environment, spacious classroom and laboratory facilities, as well as a private locker room/lounge for students. Clinical experiences prepare the student for patient treatment enhanced by clinical rotations at several community clinics including: Friends in Need Dental Clinic in Kingsport, Keystone Dental Clinic in Johnson City, and Healing Hands Dental Clinic in Bristol.

If you are interested in continuing your education, ETSU offers an on-line Masters of Science in Allied Health.
