DEPARTMENT OF ORAL HEALTH BRIDGING PROGRAM

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The Oral Health Bridging Program at Prince Sultan Military College of Health Sciences (PSMCHS) is designed to prepare graduate Saudi dental hygienists to provide basic secondary dental care to the community, as a class of oral health providers traditionally known as dental therapists. Under the supervision of dentists, they work in accredited general hospitals, community hospitals and medical-dental centers.

 

The program prepares, trains, and equips students to be another source of access to care for the community in order to reduce the morbidity and mortality of the communities’ dental tissues, apart from providing preventive therapies and oral health education.

 

The teaching method in the Oral Health Department is comprised of a combination of theoretical Coursework and Practicals, conducted with specimens and manikins, leading directly to the stage of clinical management of patients.

 

Upon graduation, the Oral Health practitioner/dental therapist is qualified to provide primary dental health care and basic secondary dental health care.
