Dental Hygiene Bachelor Degree Completion Program | TJC

Dental Hygiene Bachelor Degree Completion Program

The Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene program at TJC is the only one of its kind offered at a community college in Texas. This program is designed for licensed dental hygienists seeking a bachelor's degree.

A bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene offers multiple career opportunities in a variety of settings. In addition to treating patients directly, dental hygienists also work as educators, researchers, community project coordinators, and administrators.

In addition to advancing your dental hygiene knowledge, our program provides you the liberal arts foundation to pursue additional career opportunities in education, research, administration, clinical and public health.
