Oregon Tech's Associate Degree Dental Hygiene Program in La Grande, Oregon is a unique partnership between Oregon Tech, MODA Health/Oregon College of Dental Sciences, and Eastern Oregon University. All dental hygiene classes and clinics are held at the ODS College of Dental Sciences building in La Grande and are taught by Oregon Tech faculty. You will also have an occasional mix of online learning from Oregon Tech and campus classes at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande.
Much of your learning will occur in the state-of-the-art dental hygiene clinic provided by ODS. It is there that you will have the opportunity to use some of the latest technologies. Off-campus clinical rotations at community clinics, long-term care facilities, and correctional institutes will expand your clinic skills.
You will also be involved in community outreach projects including Give Kids a Smile and dental health presentations in the local schools.
Upon successful completion of the program, you will earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Oregon Tech. You may then pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Dental Hygiene through our online degree completion program.
