Provides students with the opportunity to supplement coursework with practical work experience related to their educational program. Students work under the immediate supervision of experienced personnel at the business location and with the direct guidance of the instructor. The course is a 2 credit hour internship requiring 90 hours of observation of a Dentist or Dental Hygienist.
Students completing HPR 180 are awarded points on their Dental Hygiene Qualification & Ranking Sheet (PDF) This improves the chance that you will get into the Dental Hygiene program at CNCC. It also gives the Dental Hygiene faculty at CNCC an additional chance to know more about you as they read your daily journal and final report.
Students may complete an Internship at anytime, however, you can only register for the course in Fall or Spring semester. If you do not know which semester you will finish in, you may register for the course after completion of the Internship.
