 Welcome to Salt Lake Community College Dental Hygiene program. A dental hygienist is a preventive oral health professional who has graduated from an accredited dental hygiene program in an institution of higher education, licensed in dental hygiene to provide educational, clinical, research, administrative, and therapeutic services supporting total health through the promotion of optimum oral health.  This career path opens a world of professional opportunities including clinical, administrative, public health, government, education, research and international service.

Students receive affordable and comprehensive higher education from faculty who hold a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctorate degree.  Our small class size promotes individualized attention and peer collaboration. Licensed Dental Hygienists and Dentists supervise the clinical experiences in an innovative on-site dental hygiene clinic.  Upon graduation, students may utilize the statewide transfer agreement to attend Utah’s four-year colleges for degree completion of a Bachelor’s degree.
