Congratulations to the first Graduates of the
AS to BS-DH Program!

AStoBSDH CO 2019


Here are some thoughtful testimonials that our graduates have to say:

"The AS to BS-DH program opened my eyes to other career opportunities besides clinical and in the process I was able to see which areas I gravitate more towards. I can say the completion program made me an even better dental hygienist for my patients and employer. "
Lyssa Quitoles, RDH, BSDH 


"The program was an excellent and cost effective way of achieving my goal of obtaining a Bachelor's Degree. Working FT and taking FT credits was challenging but achievable. I have not changed jobs since graduation but look forward to more opportunities."

Melinda Bates, RDH, BSDH


"I have been anxiously awaiting for the opportunity to complete my BS degree, and this is truly a dream come true.  There are so many opportunities for hygienists with Bachelor's degrees.Thank you for your tenacity in seeing that this door is opened for hygienists in California. I believe that the landscape and timing could not be more perfect for advanced degrees in dental hygiene allowing practitioners to be a part of a larger preventive landscape."
Rhonda Gonzales, RDH, BSDH


"With the degree completion program at Foothill College, I have been able to earn my BS in Dental Hygiene and was recently hired to become a full-time faculty member at my local community college teaching in the dental hygiene program! Through the efforts of those many people which pushed for this degree completion program, I am now able to live out my dream career. I am forever grateful and thankful that this program exists." 
Brienne Lake, RDH, BSDH 


“The AS to BS program at Foothill College was enjoyable, manageable and overall rewarding. I was able to work full-time while completing necessary courses to obtain my degree. The instructors were great, and made the experience very achievable. I strongly recommend Foothill’s BSDH program for all hygienists, an advanced education can open up so many doors for us as professionals. I have gained new knowledge in many different areas, and have had the chance to learn and explore many different areas that dental hygiene can be applied.

Thank you Foothill College, all of my instructors, and also my colleagues/classmates for helping me along my journey to my BSDH!”
Shelby Wong-Potter, RDH, BSDH
