Miscellaneous Items

Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation

All students in the Department of Dental Hygiene must be certified in Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation by October 1st. A healthcare provider course is required including training in one and two rescuer, child and infant CPR and foreign body airway obstruction and AED. Certification status must remain current until completion of the program.

Withdrawal and Re-Admission Policies

A student requesting re-admission should understand that changes in courses and / or prerequisites may have occurred since their date of withdrawal, therefore the requested date of re-admission will take precedence over an earlier catalog enrollment date.
  • A student who exits the Dental Hygiene Program for any reason is not guaranteed re-admission
  • All re-admissions are on a space available basis and are reviewed outside of the standard candidate selection process
  • At the time of withdrawal from the Dental Hygiene Program, the student must have an exit interview with the Dental Hygiene Program Director.
  • A student who withdraws two times will not be re-admitted to the program.

Third Party Comments

The Commission on Dental Accreditation regularly solicits third party comments relative to the accreditation status of the Department of Dental Hygiene at the Vermont Technical College. Comments may be submitted by interested parties such as faculty, students, program administrators, Commission consultants, specialty and dental related organizations, patients and/or consumers. The deadline for receipt of third party comments is 60 days prior to the accreditation site visit which will occur on November 1 and 2 2011. Comments must pertain only to the standards for dental hygiene program or policies and procedures used in the Commission‘s accreditation process. A copy of the accreditation standards and/or Commission‘s policy on third party comments may be obtained by contacting the Commission on Dental Accreditation, 211 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611 or by calling 1.800.621.8099, extension 4653.

Complaint Policy

If a student feels that the Vermont Tech Dental Hygiene Department is not in compliance with the Dental Accreditation Commission standards or required accreditation procedures, he/she has the right to file a complaint with the Commission on Dental Accreditation. The Commission will review complaints that relate to a program‘s compliance with the accreditation standards. The Commission is interested in the sustained quality and continued improvement of dental and dental-related programs, but does not intervene on behalf of individuals or act as a court of appeals for individuals in matters of admission, appointment, promotion or dismissal of faculty, staff or students. A copy of the accreditation standards and/or Commission‘s policy on third party comments may be obtained by contacting the Commission on Dental Accreditation, 211 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611 or by calling 1.800.621.8099, extension 4653.

I have read the Vermont Technical College Student Handbook including the Dental Hygiene Student Appendix in its entirety and agree to all of the policies and procedures therein.
