EIC’s Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Dental Hygiene Program was initially implemented in the spring of 2013. We graduated our first AAS degree in 2015, which included only 20 students. As part of our AAS admissions process, we learned that a significant number of dental hygiene applicants wanted to further their education to earn a BSDH. In response, a 123-semester credit accelerated BSDH program was implemented in 2020 to provide a broad foundation of field-specific general education and science courses designed to expand opportunities beyond the scope of private practice. In May 2023, 58 graduates received their BSDH degree. While the college no longer offers an AAS program, for those students who have earned a previous AAS in Dental Hygiene, we offer an online BSDH Completion Program.
