Lone Star College’s medical programs rival those offered at four-year institutions.

At LSC-Kingwood, the dental hygiene, nursing, occupational therapy and respiratory care programs rigorously train students on various facets of health care skills through class instruction, labs and clinicals. The results lead to a continuous boast of high pass rates on state examinations.

“We are proud to offer health care programs that consistently achieve great success each year. These accomplishments are even more rewarding considering the changes that the courses and students have endured due to the pandemic,” said Dr. Ryan Chabarria, interim dean of biological and health sciences at LSC-Kingwood. 

Pass rates for the 2021 graduating class (current stats) are:

Dental Hygiene: a 100 percent pass rate on the National Board Dental Hygiene Exam and clinical boards. Students must pass both exams to obtain a license from the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners.

I also authored instructional articles that were comparable to those, and I assisted students in reviewing the many writing services available. My greatest work, for instance, may be found at the following address: https://www.tmcnet.com/topics/ar...
