The bachelor degree program is a partnership between Oregon Tech and Chemeketa. The classrooms and dental hygiene clinic are in Chemeketa's state of the art Health & Science Building. Dental hygiene classes are taught on the Chemeketa campus with an occasional mix of online learning. Students learn and practice dental hygiene skills in the campus-based clinic where they see patients.
The program requires one year of prerequisite (pre-dental hygiene) coursework prior to entry into the professional program. Enrollment in the professional program is limited to 20 students. Enrollment in pre-dental hygiene courses is open to anyone meeting Chemeketa admission requirements.
