Dental Hygiene Program renews accreditation KCC’s Dental Hygiene Program is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education. Dental hygiene programs are up for accreditation every seven years, and KCC had a site visit for renewal on December 6 and 7, 2016. Accreditation is important, as dental hygiene students must graduate from an accredited program in order to take their board exams to obtain licensure.
