Career opportunities in Dental Hygiene abound!

The University of Wyoming and Sheridan College, located in north central Wyoming, offer a cooperative program in dental hygiene.  

PLEASE NOTE:  If you are interested in becoming a dentist (not a dental hygienist) this program is NOT an appropriate option.  Please contact the University of Wyoming PreProfessional Health Advising Office to discuss preparing for and applying to dental school.

Students typically complete about 40 hours of prerequisites and apply for admission to the dental hygiene program which is offered through and only at Sheridan College. Once admitted, students complete a two-year program in dental hygiene and earn an associate's of applied sciences in dental hygiene from Sheridan College, which is the degree necessary to be eligible for licensure.

Sheridan College dental hygiene students can also opt to complete additional requirements and earn a bachelor's of science in dental hygiene from the University of Wyoming.

For the coursework for students completing their prerequisite courses at the University of Wyoming (before Fall 2015) prior to applying to Sheridan College click here.
