Why ODU for Dental Hygiene?

As a licensed dental hygienist, you already have training and experience. Our program can help you expand your career. 

There are no “clinicals” in the traditional sense. You will be prepared with knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for a wide range of employment opportunities and a foundation for graduate study.

ODU's dental hygiene program is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation, a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education.

Accelerated Option: Undergraduates can choose to "accelerate" through the baccalaureate to the master's program by using a common 12-hour graduate credit core toward each degree.
