The College of Southern Nevada confers two undergraduate dental hygiene degrees. Both the Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene and the Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene prepare adults to enter careers as dental hygienists. Training in the bachelor program combines clinical, classroom and field experience. Although students can transfer from the associate program into the bachelor degree option, the school also accepts transfers from other accredited institutions. Out-of-state students are also accepted. The Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities accredits the bachelor degree program. Students who complete their associate training at the school are expected to earn state and national certifications before they pursue the bachelor degree.
