Why study this Higher VET?
Health professions require great academic and practical preparation, and a very important vocational aspect. If you are a person who loves dealing with the patient, who wants to help others not only from a human point of view but also scientifically, thanks to this VET you will be able to develop all the necessary skills to carry it out.
At the end of your training you will have the necessary professional skills to promote the oral health of people and the community, through the development of activities that include the exploration, evaluation, promotion and performance of dental techniques in collaboration with the dentist or stomatological doctor. In order to develop your activity you will learn to:
- Manage the work area in a dental office.
- Identify the anatomical, physiological and pathological features of the stomatognathic devices.
- Explore the oral health status of patients / users of health services.
- Evaluate the oral health of people.
- Promote oral health through health education and health promotion activities.
- Perform dental techniques, delegates or help within the oral health team.
Regarding to professional opportunities, the demand for dental hygienists is growing, both because of the growing number of dental clinics that exist and the sanitary requirements that are imposed, since staff with qualifications are required.
At the end of the course you will have several ways to enter the working world:
- Dental Hygienist at a Dental Clinic in the private sector, as an employee or as a free-lance.
- Dental Hygienist in Hospital (in the National Health System or in the private sector).
