Why Should an RDH Have a Bachelor’s Degree?

Graduates of certificate and associate degree dental hygiene programs have, by virtue of their education, earned the credits required for a bachelor’s degree. Completing a Bachelor of Science Degree through O’Hehir University provides dental hygienists with the problem solving, implementation and communication skills necessary to advance their clinical career while increasing their competitive advantage in the market place. Licensed/registered Dental Hygienists are not truly graduates of a “two-year program” as often perceived by other health care professionals. The curriculum required for an accredited dental hygiene program is in fact comparable to that of many other university bachelor's degree and for some master's degree programs. Dental hygienists should have a Bachelor of Science Degree as that does in fact reflect the entry level of dental hygienists today.
