As a licensed dental hygienist, you already have training and experience. Our program can help you expand your career.
There is no “clinical” in the traditional sense. You will gain knowledge and skills necessary for a wide range of employment opportunities and graduate study.
ODU's dental hygiene program is accredited by CODA, the Commission on Dental Accreditation. CODA is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education.
Accelerated Dental Hygiene Degree Option: Undergraduates can choose to "accelerate" from the bachelor's to the master's program by using a common 12-hour graduate credit core toward each degree.
