NYU College of Dentistry to add bachelor's degree in dental hygiene

The New York City-based NYU College of Dentistry is launching a Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene with a concentration in dental science.

The program creates a path for students interested in dental school or other graduate health programs, according to a Jan. 3 news release from the school. 

Through the program, students are prepared to become dental hygienists after graduation through real-world clinical experiences. 

The school will admit the program's first class of students for the fall 2024 semester, the release said.
