Dental Hygiene Degree Completion Program

The Degree Completion program is for currently licensed Dental Hygienists who have graduated from an accredited dental hygiene program, but did not obtain a Bachelor’s degree as part of their studies.  A Bachelor of Science degree can increase employment beyond an entry-level position and in alternative practice settings; an advanced degree develops a better-rounded professional and provides opportunities for career and educational advancement.

Our program provides a stimulating environment where students gain a superb understanding of research methods and current research in the field, as well as advanced knowledge and clinical skills in periodontics.

Prospective students must have already received either a certificate in Dental Hygiene or an Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene in order to be admitted.  Applicants with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene from an accredited Canadian program may also apply.
