Start a career you can smile about with an associate degree in dental hygiene.

Baker’s Dental Hygiene associate degree program prepares you to meet today’s demands through a curriculum that is designed with the continuing guidance and input of dentists and other professionals in the field. Dental hygienists work one-on-one with patients to prevent and treat diseases by examining patients for signs of disease to cleaning teeth and much more.

Your courses, taught by faculty who have years of experience in dental hygiene, combine classroom work with plenty of hands-on training in labs and working clinics that rival the best facilities anywhere.

You’ll be thoroughly prepared for the National and Regional Board Examinations, and ready for an entry-level position in any one of a number of settings - private dental offices, schools, public health clinics, hospitals, and more.

This is a limited enrollment program.

I chose Baker because they had such a detailed laid out plan for me. It got me working as a nurse and their goal is to see everyone off and working. Baker faculty are very prepared professionals. I felt like they set me up for success.
