Pre-Dental Hygiene Curriculum

The pre-dental hygiene curriculum prepares students to apply for the professional entry-level program; however, students may also transfer requisite coursework from other accredited institutions of higher education. Entry into pre-dental hygiene is open to anyone who is accepted as a student into TWU.

Professional Entry-Level Program

The professional entry-level program requires at least two years of prerequisite foundational and core courses and two years in the dental hygiene curriculum at the Denton campus. Admission is competitive. The program provides a rich academic expreience designed to provide the environment necessary to become a professional dental hygienist. The Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene degree is awarded upon successful completion of the program.

RDH to BSDH Program

The RDH to BSDH online program at TWU allows dental hygiene professionals who have or will soon have an associate's degree in dental hygiene from a CODA accredited institution, to complete their Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene (BSDH). A license to practice dental hygiene or departmental permission to complete a BSDH degree is also required. Students may complete upper division dental hygiene coursework online with courses designed to build on and enhance their dental hygiene associate's degree curricula. Up to 90 hours (84 lower division) maybe be transferred into the program, including approved dental hygiene coursework.
