Dental Hygiene Degree Completion Program
The Dental Hygiene Degree Completion program is designed for dental hygienists who have successfully completed an accredited (CODA) dental hygiene program and want to complete a bachelor’s degree.
This program can be taken full-time or part-time but must be completed within five years. Along with three core courses, the dental hygienist can choose one area of concentration in either: business/management, pre-professional (those interested in dental school), education (teaching) or forensics. A minimum of 30 credit hours are required to graduate from Mount Ida College.
The education and business/management concentrations can be taken completely online. The forensic and pre-professional concentrations require some courses to be taken on campus.
The completely online options afford students who do not live in the area and/or those traditional daytime working hygienists to complete a BS degree.
**Current licensure in Dental Hygiene and Healthcare Provider CPR are required for the education concentration.
