  • Choosing dental hygiene as my major has been the best decision of my life! The program has been very hands on and helped me gain more confidence to feel more prepared to work in the industry.

  • A career in dental hygiene has a lot of the same benefits as other healthcare careers but with superior work/life balance. There’s no such thing as a dental hygiene emergency and so you’re not on call during times you’d rather be at home.

  • It’s a really challenging program but at the same time, the instructors are sincerely interested in you and want you to succeed. They would always spend extra time with me whenever they saw that I needed help.

Why UVU?

Great reputation in the dental community. Thanks to our highly qualified staff and individualized instruction, our students have an astounding 99.9% board pass rate. UVU has a reputation for training smart and talented hygienists, and most graduates find a high-paying job right away.

Associates and online bachelor's degree. We offer two degrees: an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Dental Hygiene, and a Bachelor of Science completion degree for those who already have their associate's in dental hygiene (or who are currently in an associate dental hygiene program.) This degree completion program can be done exclusively online. This means you can conveniently balance 2-3 days of working in private practice with family time and any other obligations.

Open enrollment. No matter where you are in life - whether you're fresh out of high school and kickstarting your career, a previous graduate seeking change, or a mother looking to come back and learn a new trade, we have what you need.

Online Bachelor's Degree

Current dental hygiene professionals and UVU Dental Hygiene students can earn a Bachelor's of Science Degree online and on their own time in just 24 months. This online program allows working students the flexibility needed to complete their degree. Through this interdisciplinary program, students can gain specialized skills in education, public health, or business which complement each student's already well-developed core dental hygiene skills. Students who earn a B.S. in Dental Hygiene can find careers in education, work for product companies, health administration, and some student go on to earn a Master's Degree.

Community Involvement

Our clinic serves 2,000+ patients every year. We are committed to improving the community by providing high quality, affordable dental hygiene care to persons of any age or income level. We work with groups that do not have dental insurance nor the money for expensive dental care, but have a great need. Not only does this benefit those we serve, but the students themselves gain knowledge, experience, and compassion as they reach out to those less fortunate.
