Dental Hygiene Programs

In Canada, dental hygienists must successfully complete a dental hygiene diploma or bachelor program. The curriculum focuses on oral and clinical science, with an emphasis on health promotion and preventive, motivational and communication strategies.

The Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC) approves requirements for all dental hygiene programs including those at colleges, universities and private institutions. For information on these requirements and a list of accredited dental hygiene programs, please visit the CDAC website.

If you currently hold a diploma in dental hygiene, but would like to earn a baccalaureate degree in dental hygiene there are degree completion options available in Canada. See if one of these programs would work for you!
