The Oregon Institute of Technology Dental Hygiene Program provides an educational environment that fosters respect and encourages critical thinking. Its mission is to educate students to become primary healthcare providers who are well prepared to serve the public in multiple roles and who are empowered to become life-long learners.
Upon graduation students are prepared for entry into the dental hygiene profession and are eligible for state and national exams leading to licensure as a registered dental hygienist or expanded practice dental hygienist.
We offer our programs at two locations. Are you looking to start your career as a professional dental hygienist? Then choose from one of these two program sites:
Bachelor Degree in Klamath Falls
Since 1970, our original program has been located on the Klamath Falls campus of Oregon Tech. The program is known for its community outreach and small student-to-faculty ratio.
Bachelor Degree in Salem
Located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, the professional dental hygiene program in Salem is the result of a unique partnership between Oregon Tech and Chemeketa Community College.
