Pre-Dental Hygiene

Sky's the Limit at UT Martin

The UT Martin Pre-Dental Hygiene Plan is designed to prepare students for application to a dental hygiene program. By following the Pre-Dental Hygiene Plan recommendations, students will be eligible for admission into most Dental Hygiene programs; however, the prerequisite courses required for admission vary significantly from one institution to the next. The pre-dental hygiene plan recommendations are based on the most commonly required prerequisite courses for entry-level (AAS, AS, or BS) programs. The courses listed in the plan are intended only as a guideline and students are strongly encouraged to review the requirements for their school(s) of choice as they vary from school to school.

Please note: The Pre-Dental Hygiene Plan is not a major and does not fulfill the requirements for a baccalaureate degree at UT Martin. The courses listed below are recommendations and are not required for degree completion unless also listed under the student’s chosen major.
