The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa School of Nursing & Dental Hygiene (SONDH) is the premier nursing and dental hygiene school in the State of Hawai‘i. Located on the Mānoa campus, the only doctoral/research university-intensive institution in Hawai‘i, we are dedicated to improving health through education, research, and service. The School provides instructional, clinical and research activities to enhance the health and care of diverse populations in the State of Hawai‘i and the Asia-Pacific region.
The Department of Dental Hygiene offers the bachelor's of science in dental hygiene. The school is planning the transfer of the BS degree to the new UH West Oahu campus. The “complete” transfer of the program, faculty and resources will provide the opportunity for the dental hygiene program to build a state of the art clinical teaching facility for the program while increasing its ability to serve the community through an expanded dental hygiene presence on the Leeward coast. Please check our website regularly to for updates on the planning process and timeline for the transfer.
