As a dentist, you have the power to restore and promote patients’ oral health. This unique program allows you to begin your education focused on your goal of attending dental school, while preparing you as a dental hygienist.

In this 37-month program, you'll spend the first 21 months completing your core curriculum and dental school prerequisites on the Boston campus. Then, you will continue in the 16-month professional phase in Boston, where you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside professional experts through clinical experiences in our prestigious on-campus clinic and community facilities.

When you graduate in December, you’ll be eligible to sit for the dental hygiene licensing examinations and may work as a dental hygienist to gain practical experience before starting dental school. With far more clinical expertise than many of your dental school peers, you'll be positioned to flourish in dental school.
