Dental Hygiene Portal


A database is a collection of information that is organized so that the information can be easily searched and retrieved, and so that the information can be managed and updated. To find a list of databases to which you will have access through HSLS, go to our Databases A-Z list.

Here are two databases that are frequently used to find dental hygiene articles and other resources:

  • PubMed is a database that searches biomedical literature.
  • Scopus is a database that identifies scientific, technical, medical, and social sciences literature from peer-reviewed journals.
