WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Thomas Nelson Community College’s (TNCC) Dental Hygiene Program has been accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) and granted “initial accreditation” status. A specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education, CODA conducted an on-site review at TNCC in March, and as required, has scheduled its next on-site evaluation for spring 2012 before the program’s first class graduates.

The College added the Associate Degree Program in Dental Hygiene to complement its Allied Health offerings. Occupying 5,000 square-feet on the second floor of TNCC’s Historic Triangle campus facility, the program starts its first classes this month.
