Dental Hygienist Major
I am currently a freshman in college going on my sophomore year. I am looking into becoming a dental hygienist. Right now, I am a health science major but my school doesn’t offer a dental hygiene major. Can I become a dental hygienist with a bachelor’s degree in health sciences? #dentistry #dentistry #dental #college #dental #dental
Requirements differ state to state, but most requirements can be satisfied by:
Diploma from a CDA-accredited program
Successful passage of the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination, a comprehensive written test
Completion of a state-level or regional clinical board examination
Once you've completed all three, you are considered a registered dental hygienist and can put RDH to your name.
