The Dental Hygiene Program has maintained a strong clinical and academic history since the admission of its first class in 1955. It is a fully accredited two-year program, which leads to either a certificate in dental hygiene or a bachelor of science degree in dental hygiene. Approximately 40 students are admitted to the Dental Hygiene Program each fall semester. The University of Texas School of Dentistry's Dental Hygiene Program is the only dental hygiene program in the Houston area offering a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene.
