The program prepares students to get a Bachelor of Science degree in four years. Students start prerequisites as freshmen and begin the dental hygiene curriculum in year two. Students graduate with a BS degree and are prepared to provide high quality care as a Registered Dental Hygienist. The event will also feature current HS DEDH students who will share about their experiences in the program.
