Community Dental Health Certificate.
The CDHC program consists of four three-credit courses that are created in an asynchronous format that allows the learner to complete class-work at their convenience throughout a 17-week semester. The courses are offered during the fall and spring semesters and are arranged in a semi-sequential order allowing the learner to build upon previously learned principles. Completion of the program is at the convenience of the learner.
A few examples of learning objectives achieved upon completion of the program include a) differentiate public health from private practice, b) conduct a community oral health needs assessment, c) identify potential funding sources for public health programming, and d) plan a community oral health program.
