San Joaquin Valley College’s online Bachelor of Science degree Dental Hygiene (BSDH) program recently prepared twelve newly credentialed graduates for professional growth and development. This accelerated program, designed exclusively for online participation, can be completed in as few as 12-months.
What students may have missed in an in-person experience they readily exchanged for the convenience of home-study, ease of online student and faculty interaction and more comfortable test-taking. “I liked the online flexibility, so being a full-time hygienist, mom and wife, I could go at my own pace,” says Amanda Frank, one of those recent BSDH graduates.
To qualify for enrollment in SJVC’s BSDH program, applicants must have already earned an Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene (from a CODA-accredited program from an accredited institution), have a minimum of 80 units of lower division classes and hold a current, unencumbered credential licensure as a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) in the state of current employment.
