AS to BS-DH
AS to BS-DH
Class of 2020!
Here are some thoughtful testimonials that our graduates have to say:
"The online courses are well thought out and challenging, but during the program I felt supported by the faculty and a genuine camaraderie with classmates. Since I’ve completed my BSDH I have applied for a part time position as a clinical dental hygiene instructor. Along with additional professional opportunities I am proud of myself for successful completing this educational goal. I would like to tell my dental hygiene colleagues who are considering their BSDH to take a leap of faith and do it. Start slow if needed. One class at a time will eventually get the job done."
- Michael John Long, RDHAP, BSDH
"Completing my bachelor’s degree in the AS to BS-DH program at Foothill gave me the ability to secure a multitude of options for my future. Overall, I found the program to be affordable, attainable, and definitely worth it. The instructors and topics covered opened my eyes and gave me the tools to be a better clinician. They also prepared me to continue on in my career in whichever way I choose. If you are a hygienist considering whether to complete your bachelor’s I would say go for it!
Without a doubt it has been a positive step forward."

I am so grateful for this program and this experience!"

“I was able to complete the AS-BS program in 5 quarters, remaining full time taking 2 classes per quarter. Because this program is entirely online my work schedule was not impacted and I was also able to work full time and continue my degree. I decided to obtain my BSDH degree to open up more career opportunities in the dental hygiene profession and now that I have completed the program through foothill college, I am able to do so. I would recommend this program to any hygienist looking to go back to school because it is extremely affordable and flexible with anyone’s work schedule.”
