Dental Hygiene – Associate in Arts Degree
Mount Ida’s Dental Hygiene Associate Degree Department offers a two-year dental hygiene associate in arts degree program with one year of prerequisite courses, totaling three years of study. Dental Hygiene students train in our newly expanded, state-of-the-art Dental Education Center & Community Dental Clinic. Working directly with patients under the supervision of experienced dentists and dental hygienists, you’ll cultivate the steady hand, practiced eye and sharp mind that dental hygiene professionals need. Our supportive faculty offer personalized instruction and guidance, preparing you to step into a dental hygienist job—and excel in it—the day you complete your dental hygiene associate’s degree.
Students may have the option to enroll as a full-time student in the Pre-Dental Hygiene Program, enabling them to complete the prerequisites and general education courses prior to admission. Mount Ida’s Dental Hygiene Associate’s Degree Program feeds directly into our bachelor’s degree program in dental hygiene.
