DHE 100 Introduction to Dental Hygiene

If you are taking pre-dental hygiene courses at a community college and planning to transfer to one of Oregon Tech’s dental hygiene programs you will need to take DHE 100 Introduction to Dental Hygiene. DHE 100 is offered each term and you can view registration information here. You must have successfully completed or be in process of completing DHE 100 at the time of program application or by the end of spring term of the year of application.

The Dental Hygiene Program is no longer requiring 3 terms for chemistry as prerequisite courses before applying to the program. Only CHE 101, Introduction to General Chemistry, and CHE 104, Lab, or equivalent are required. The official Dental Hygiene Curriculum map will be updated soon.
