2014-2015 Catalog

Dental Hygiene

The Sheridan College Program in Cooperation with Western Wyoming Community College

The Sheridan College program is fully approved by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. It is unique in that an initial year of specified general coursework, taken at Western Wyoming Community College, Sheridan College, or any other accredited college or university, followed by two years of intensive clinical study and practice at Sheridan College will lead to the Applied Associate Degree and eligibility for licensure. The student may elect to continue for a B.S. degree in an alternative dental hygiene career track. The employment opportunities offered to the student through these career options are limited only by the student’s own abilities and aspirations.

Admission to the Program

(All prospective dental hygiene students are encouraged to contact Sheridan College as soon as possible.)

During the freshman year formal application must be made to enter the professional clinical portion of the dental hygiene curriculum at Sheridan College. The completed application and all supplementary information required (including latest transcripts) must be received at the College by March 14 of the year of entry into the professional program. Applications will include the following: online application to Sheridan College, online Dental Hygiene admissions application, official transcripts from all colleges and high schools attended and completion of the HOBET Exam with a score of 75. (Contact Sheridan College for information.)

Class size in the program is limited and selection of students for the professional program (sophomore and junior years) is on a competitive basis. Students with a G.P.A. below 2.75 will not be considered due to state board requirements.
