The Dental Hygiene Clinic located on the Cooper campus of the Bluegrass Community and Technical College opened in 1977. The Dental Hygiene Program has produced over 500 graduates who care for the oral health needs of the public. The faculty is extremely proud of the achievements of graduates, including high rates of licensure, ("Board") examination success and post graduation employment and continuing education.
