ULM dental hygiene program expands to Wisconsin

The University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) is expanding its dental hygiene program after reaching a new articulation agreement with Northcentral Technical College (NTC) in Wisconsin.

The new partnership allows students to complete an online Bachelor of Science Degree in two years at ULM after completing an associate degree in Dental Hygiene at NTC, according to the university.

The move is designed to improve oral health care in rural communities in northeast Louisiana. Beverly Jarrell first developed and implemented ULM's dental hygiene program 40 years ago and currently heads the department.

ULM has established several others agreements, including those with Louisiana Delta Community College in 2008, Dallas Community College District in 2009, Bossier Parish Community College in 2010, South Arkansas Community College in 2010, and an agreement with Hinds Community College in 2010.

ULM will continue to explore 2+2 initiatives with other two-year colleges.
