Dental Hygiene Admissions

For all admission questions please call Danielle Marble in the Academic Advising Office at 801-957-6215.

Thank you for your interest in the Salt Lake Community College's Dental Hygiene program. As the advisors, we are happy to assist you in navigating through the pre-admissions process for this program.

Before scheduling an appointment, or visiting us during our walk-in hours, please print and review the
"Fall 2015 Admissions Criteria" handout as many frequently asked questions will be answered.  With the selective or rolling admissions process, the Health Sciences Programs no longer use a wait list system for new applications.

To schedule an appointment with a dental hygiene advisor please call the Academic and Career Advising line on the Jordan Campus at 801-957-6215. You are also welcome to meet with a general advisor at any time, especially if you are not set on pursuing this particular degree. For other advising locations and hours please visit the Academic and Career Advising website.
