Pre-Dental Hygiene

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

In conjunction with the School of Dentistry, a baccalaureate degree program in dental hygiene is available at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center (UCHSC). This is a “2+2” program with two years at UCCS and two years at UCHSC in Denver. The dental hygienist must satisfactorily complete a college program and pass the state board examination.

After being licensed by the state in which he or she wishes to practice, the dental hygienist has many opportunities for employment in private dental offices, state and city health agencies, federal government agencies, public and private schools, boards of education, industrial dental clinics and hospitals, and in schools of dental hygiene as directors and teachers.


Information and application materials are available from:

University of Colorado School of Dentistry, Office of Admissions & Student Affairs, PO Box 6508, Mail Stop F833, Aurora, CO 80045. www.uchsc.edu/sod
