Dental Hygiene (BS)
The exciting field of Dental Hygiene allows for the pursuit of a career not only in clinical practice, but in alternative career settings such as public health, academia, and research. Dental Hygiene B.S. students will expand upon their clinical experience to gain additional expertise in developing community health intervention programs, understanding and applying epidemiologic data, evaluating academic curriculum, examining and evaluating social policy, and leading health practices.
The Bachelor of Science completion program in Dental Hygiene complements the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Dental Hygiene with a seamless transition. Enrollment in and completion of the B.S. is only offered to licensed dental hygienists* that are graduates of an associate level program accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) of the American Dental Association. Entry-level students seeking clinical licensure must first enroll and complete the Dental Hygiene A.A.S.
*Does not apply to graduates of the Plaza College AAS in Dental Hygiene
