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 graduating dental hygiene students had a 100% pass rate on the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination. The students also scored above the national average in all categories.

Most states require students to pass the national exam prior to taking state board exams.

ULM dental hygiene students, who have had a 100% pass rate over the past several years, have also scored higher than many other students in the same field. Dental Hygiene Department Head Beverly Jarrell, says, "We are always proud of our students accomplishments. Year after year we have had a 100% pass rate and we are proud that we are providing the profession with quality students."

Dental hygiene will graduate 19 students this Saturday.
