Associate in Science
Are you interested in how to become a dental hygienist? The Associate in Science (A.S.) in Dental Hygiene degree prepares students for a rewarding career as a well-trained dental hygiene professional. Dental hygienists are licensed preventive oral health professionals who provide educational, clinical and therapeutic services. Graduates from the dental hygiene program support total oral health through the promotion of optimal dental health, working with licensed dentists and other dental auxiliaries as a member of an oral health care team. Upon completion of the dental hygiene program, graduates must pass both computerized and clinical exams prior to becoming state licensed to work as a dental hygienist.
The program in dental hygiene is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation and has been granted the accreditation status of "approval without reporting requirements." The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education. The Commission on Dental Accreditation can be contacted at (312) 440-4653 or at 211 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611. The Commission's web address is: http://www.ada.org/en/coda.
