Academics & Curriculum
The Dixie State University Dental Hygiene Program offers a progressive education that prepares graduates to provide comprehensive dental hygiene care. The program produces dental hygienists of the highest ethical and professional standards by providing exceptional academic and experiential learning opportunities.
We enroll 24 students each academic year, so our small classes have great instructor-to-student ratios. Students start in fall semester (usually mid-August) and complete 5 consecutive semesters:
- Program 1st Year Fall & Spring
- Summer Online
- Program 2nd Year Fall & Spring
At the successful conclusion of the Dental Hygiene Program, students are able to perform the essential career functions of a dental hygiene professional and enter the workforce subsequent to passing national and regional/state licensing examination(s).
