It is harder and harder to get into the dental hygiene program. As the demand increases so does the pre-req’s to get in. You should have at least a 3.0 or higher to even be considered. Hygiene school is very hard and you have to have a strong science and anatomy background. Many of the classes that you will need even before you get in are biochemistry, anatomy one and two, microbiology, english one and two and history, and medical terminology. You will have to have some form of public speaking and several humanities. You need to get all of this out of the way to make it into hygiene school. Hygiene is just not about cleaning people’s teeth, you have to know the whole disease process and how it affects the whole body. You will have intensive clinical classes as well as oral pathology, periodontics, which in itself is a hard class. Try remembering the twenty letter names of certain bacteria, like bacteroids forsythus, prevetella intermedia…………the oral pathology alone is a killer. If you are serious about hygiene school then go for it, but don’t think for a moment that it is easy, it is not. It is very stressful and comprehensive. Good luck.
