Dental Hygiene graduates are healthcare professionals who perform tasks relating to the prevention of oral and dental disorders, under the direction of dentists and physicians qualified to practice dentistry.

Dental Hygiene graduates:
- provide dental health education services;
- assist with primary prevention projects under the National Health System;
- assist in the compilation of dental and oral health medical files and deal with technical and statistical data collection;
- deal with calculus removal, root planning and the local application of various preventive devices;

- highlight rules of healthy eating for dental health protection.

Dental Hygiene graduates can work in public and private dental clinics authorised under current regulations, in a freelance or employed capacity.
