We are pleased that you have expressed an interest in Eastern Washington University's Dental Hygiene department.

Completion of the dental hygiene curriculum requires a minimum of four full academic years of study. The first year(s) focuses on a broad spectrum of courses, which include general education core requirements, competencies and proficiencies, as well as basic science courses, which prepare students for the dental hygiene major. Once admitted to the program, students combine their dental hygiene lecture and clinical coursework with general university core requirements and upper-division liberal arts courses in Spokane and Cheney over a three-year period. Upon satisfactory completion of program and university requirements, students receive a bachelor of science degree in Dental Hygiene.

Dental hygiene graduates are eligible to take national, regional and state licensing examinations. Successful completion of the examinations enable baccalaureate hygienists to seek employment in private dental practices, health clinics, school programs, public health programs, hospitals, nursing homes, industrial clinics, college dental hygiene programs and in research. Employment opportunities for dental hygienists are good with excellent opportunities in some rural areas.
