As a licensed dental hygienist, you already have training and experience. Our program can help you expand your career.
You will gain knowledge and skills necessary for a wide range of employment opportunities and graduate study. Because this program is designed for licensed dental hygienists, there are no clinicals.
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.
When you graduate, you will earn a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene (BSDH).
Accelerated Dental Hygiene Degree Option: Undergraduates can choose to "accelerate" from the BSDH post-licensure program to the Master of Science program by applying up to 12 graduate credit hours toward both degrees. Contact us with the form on this page to learn more about this option.
