What is an Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene?

In cooperation with Montgomery County Community College, the Dental Hygiene associate degree program prepares you to work as a dental hygienist in a variety of settings and to provide preventative and therapeutic oral care to the public. You’ll receive extensive, hands-on training at Central Campus’s new, state-of-the-art Health Sciences Center in its dental hygiene clinic. You’ll also gain clinical experience at community-based sites.

The Dental Hygiene Associate Degree program, through an agreement with Montgomery County Community College, is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation.
