Cheryl’s Answer

They have similar but not all classes coincides. Pre-dent has alot more science core requirements than DH prerequisite. Each dental hygiene program has their own prerequisites. So, make sure you check each program.
Are you thinking about dental school? If so, I would make sure you have both prerequisites for both majors then you will be covered for both majors. So, say that you didn't get into dental school, then you have DH school to fall back on but I would make sure you then apply to both programs and all programs have different deadlines.
Hope this helps!
