ULM Dental Hygiene Students Show 100% Pass Rate on National Exam

The American Dental Association, Department of Testing Services has reported that the University of Louisiana at Monroe senior dental hygiene students had a 100% pass rate on the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination. Most states require students pass the national exam prior to taking state board exams. Along with having a 100% pass rate over the past several years, ULM dental hygiene students have also scored in the upper quarter of all students in that field. Department Head of Dental Hygiene, Beverly Jarrell, says, "ULM Dental Hygiene Students have scored in the upper quarter of all dental hygiene programs on the Dental Hygiene National Board for the past several years and in each of these years have had a 100% pass rate. We are very proud of their accomplishments. Our students and faculty are very dedicated and we feel the quality of our program excels because of their dedication."
