Licensure Disclaimer

Graduation from the Dental Hygiene program does not guarantee the ability to obtain a Utah state license to practice as a Dental Hygienist. Licensure is the exclusive right and responsibility of each state.  In order to practice as a Dental Hygienist, students must satisfy individual state requirements, independent of SLCC graduation requirements. It is highly recommended that students consult in advance with the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL), or similar agencies in other states, to find out more about eligibility for licensure.  DOPL can be reached at 801-530-6628 or at their website.

If you have difficulty finding the licensure requirements for your state, please contact your academic advisor or SLCC’s state authorization coordinator for help.
