Allied Health Associate Degree Programs:

Dental hygienists remove soft and hard deposits from teeth, teach patients how to practice good oral hygiene, and provide other preventative dental care, such as cleaning and polishing teeth, taking radiographs and applying fluoride treatment. The dental hygienist also serves as an oral health educator in the clinical and community setting. Dental hygienists should work well with others and must have good manual dexterity to use dental instruments within a patient's mouth, with little room for error.
- Associate Degree in Mortuary Science
The Mortuary Science program, as it prepares students to serve within the funeral service profession, adheres to the institutional commitment to student sucess in both human development and achievement of educational goals. This challenge is met by educating our students in all phases of funeral service with special attention being given to the high ethical standards within the funeral service profession. These goals are accomplished through a wide variety of educational experiences aimed at developing the many skills needed in order to successfully serve within the funeral service profession. This curriculum is based upon the American Board of Funeral Service Education curriculum outlines. Several of the Mortuary Science classes require some outside work as well as reserach about various aspects of the funeral service profession. Upon completion of the Mortuary Science program, each graduate will have attained those skills necessary to uphold and foster the dignity of the funeral service profession.

- Associate Degree in Radiologic Technology
Carl Sandburg College offers a two-year associate degree program in Radiologic Technology, beginning each year in June. This program is designed to prepare students to perform diagnostic x-ray examinations for patients in hospitals, imaging centers, physicians' offices, and other health-related institutions.
Radiologic technologists use x-ray equipment to create images of organs, bones and blood vessels of the body. An x-ray image, or radiograph, is produced when a small amount of radiation passes through a body part and is recorded on film or stored electronically on computer. Radiologic technologists must accurately position patients and manipulate x-ray equipment to ensure that high quality diagnostic images are produced. They are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, radiographic techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care. Radiologic technologists work closely with physicians who then interpret the images to either confirm or rule out disease or injury.
