There are many reasons to earn your B.S. in Dental Hygiene when you already hold the A.S. degree. The B.S. will enable you to seek careers in dental care with higher salaries, pursue careers beyond clinical practice, and gain a competitive edge over job applicants who don’t hold the bachelor’s degree.
The University of New Haven’s dental hygiene program is one of the most prestigious in the country, thanks to both its rigorous standards and student-centered approach. That’s the opinion of both The Best Colleges.org and GradReports.com, who have ranked the program as one of the best in the U.S.
Those standards and student focus are fully present in our online degree completion program, which is specifically designed for practicing dental hygienists. It offers you:
- Fully online, asynchronous, self-paced learning that you can work into your busy professional and personal life
- Instructors who are licensed dental hygienists, leaders in their field, and published researchers in the subjects you will study
- A deeply dedicated faculty who mentor students through every step of the program
- One-on-one help with adjusting to online technology and learning
Upon completion of the program, you also will be fully qualified to move out of the dental office and into pursuit of professional opportunities in the areas of education, research, administration, public health, and corporate business, if you desire.
In addition, you will have carved out a perfect pathway to graduate study in the Master of Public Health and the Master of Health Administration degrees within the University of New Haven’s School of Health Sciences.
