Are you looking to further your education as a dental hygienist? Advancement or new options in your career?

Oregon Institute of Technology's online degree completion program enables professional dental hygienists to complete a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. The program integrates dental hygiene, public health, education and management courses with a general education core.

About Our Program

Our degree completion program offers you additional education in your profession, advancement or new options in your career, and the bachelor's degree required for entry into master's degree programs. Many of our students go on to advanced degrees in business, education and more.

You will begin the program with a foundation for degree completion built upon two sources: credit you complete at another college and transfer to Oregon Tech and credit granted for successful completion of the dental hygiene national board examination. For example, 86 credits are granted for the national exam. 

Once you are admitted to the program, our staff will conduct a transfer evaluation of your prior coursework to see which classes are applicable toward your bachelor’s degree. After the evaluation is complete, we will contact you with an advising guide showing your transfer credits, registry credits, and future classes needed for completion.  You may view the curriculum, including courses granted for registry, under Course Requirements.
