Find Your Future
Improving Dental Health

What You'll Learn

Through clinical experience and coursework, Dental Hygiene students learn about topics such as:

  • Dental sciences
  • Clinical dental hygiene
  • Public health dental hygiene
  • Supportive dental hygiene
  • Patient assessment, oral tissues and overall health
  • Patient education
  • Pain management
  • Clinical therapeutic services

Career Options

Students of the Ivy Tech Dental Hygiene program are eligible to take all licensing exams prior to graduation and then apply for dental hygiene licensure upon graduation. Upon passing all national, state, and regional exams, graduates begin their career as a Licensed Dental Hygienist.

Day-to-day dental hygienists will work with patients to provide periodontal treatment and assess their overall dental health. They may also provide additional support to dentists on more complex procedures.

Within the profession, dental hygienists can work in private dental offices, corporate dental offices, or public health facilities.

Selective Admissions

The Dental Hygiene program at Ivy Tech has a selective admissions process, which means not all students who apply to the program will be accepted. Students start by applying to Ivy Tech and enrolling in the Healthcare Specialist with a Dental Hygiene interest. During their first semester, students will complete prerequisite course requirements needed to then apply to the Dental Hygiene program.

The Ivy Tech Dental Hygiene program can be a challenging, yet rewarding, program. Before you apply, review the following requirements and expectations for students in the program.

Time Commitment

The Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene program requires a major commitment of time and energy. Courses are typically scheduled over 4-5 days per week. Students may also need to schedule additional general education courses as needed each semester. It is essential that you plan for the same amount of study time as class time per week. Dental Hygiene course schedules and assignment due dates will not be adjusted to accommodate individual work schedules.

You can expect to spend the following hours each week in active contact for your courses (based on 8-week courses):

  • Lecture classes: 1 classroom contact hours per credit hour (so if a class is worth 3 credit hours, expect 6 contact hours)
  • Lab classes: 2 lab contact hours per credit hour
  • Clinical courses: 3 clinical contact hours per credit hour

Attendance

Students are expected to attend all class meetings, or other activities assigned as a part of a course of instruction. Attendance is necessary to maximize student-learning opportunities. Students who are absent are responsible for missed material. Clinical courses require that the student be present to effectively evaluate successful achievement of clinical course objectives and concepts, as clinical course objectives cannot be accomplished or evaluated outside the clinical setting. There are no make-up sessions for missed clinical hours; therefore, regular clinical attendance is mandatory for successful clinical course and program completion.

Eligibility for Licensure

During their time as a student in the Dental Hygiene program, students will take the four exams required to apply for licensure. There are fees associated with each of these exams that students must plan for. See all costs associated with the program below.

While completing the Dental Hygiene program prepares students for a career in this valued profession, they must apply for licensure before beginning their career. In order to apply, your degree must be conferred, which can take up to one month after graduation.

Dental Hygiene Program Student Requirements

The following are required for participation in clinical activities:

  • Annual criminal background and sex offender registry screening
  • Annual drug screening
  • Physical examination and verification of essential functions
  • Annual flu vaccination
  • Up-to-date immunizations including Hepatitis B series, MMR, Varicella, Tdap, Diphtheria, Pertussis, and COVID-19
  • Annual TB skin testing or other documentation for positive tests per CDC guidelines
  • Documentation of current CPR Certification in Basic Life Support (BLS) for Health Care Providers from AHA or American Red Cross

Students interested in applying for admission to the Dental Hygiene program should begin locating childhood immunization records early to ensure complete vaccination and physicals are submitted by established deadlines.

Students with disabilities are required to contact the college Disabilities Support Staff at the campus of interest for assistance in requesting accommodations (if applicable).

The Assessment Technologies Institute’s (ATI) Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is used as part of the admissions process by the Ivy Tech School of Health Sciences programs.

Schedule Your TEAS Test Appointment Now

Test Components

The ATI TEAS test measures your ability in four categories: Reading, English, Math, and Science. Your TEAS test must include all four test components to be considered valid; partial tests will not be accepted. Applicants must score at the PROFICIENT level or higher to be considered for admission. ATI TEAS adjusted individual total score will be used in the selection point system.

Preparing for the TEAS Test

A good time for a high school student to take the ATI TEAS test is during the last semester of high school or upon graduation. If an interested student graduated from high school a year or more ago, the test should be taken after review of high school content and after you’ve completed at least a portion of the prerequisite courses for dental hygiene. All candidates must attend an Ivy Tech Dental Hygiene information session prior to taking the TEAS exam.

Test Deadlines & Timing

Semester PROGRAM STARTS

Test Deadline Date

Application Date

Fall April 30 March 15 – May 15

TEAS testing must be completed within the published application deadline (see table above) in order to be considered for the corresponding application period. Due to processing time for the ATI TEAS to appear in the student’s application, it is recommended that testing times be scheduled 2 to 4 weeks prior to the posted TEAS test deadline date. ATI TEAS scores not available by the deadlines will not be considered.

Applicants who take the ATI TEAS at schools other than Ivy Tech must contact Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) to have an official copy electronically submitted directly to Ivy Tech.

ATI TEAS Test scores will be valid for two (2) years from the date of the initial ATI TEAS test for all nursing program tracks and must be valid through the application deadline date.

ATI TEAS tests that expire prior to the application deadline will be ineligible for consideration towards program admission, even if the student applies prior to the application deadline.

Repeat Testing

The ATI TEAS test may be taken up to 2 times in a 2-year period regardless of the testing location. After your first attempt, you must wait at least 30 days prior to retaking your exam. Applicants must pay the approved testing fee with each attempt.

Taking the Test & Costs

The test takes approximately 3 1/2 hours to complete. Currently, only remote tests are being conducted. You will need your valid (non-expired) government-issued photo ID. All TEAS exam appointments must be made and paid for online through our self-serve site. The Remote TEAS exam fee for Ivy Tech students is $81 ($141 for non-students, but this is not available currently).

Save time on test day by setting up your computer in advance. View the Proctorio Student Training video.

Offers of Admission

Students can select up to 3 credential types and 3 campuses each on the application.
Offers of acceptance are for a specific credential and a specific campus. The offers are determined through 8 rounds of autoselection and 6 rounds of manual selection.

If you are accepted, you will receive an email from the online application system to your Ivy Tech email account offering you a seat in the program you selected. Offers are emailed beginning within 1 week of the application close date and continue until program capacity is met or one week before the start of semester classes. Each round of offers begins at 6:00 am and applicants have until 11:59 pm the following day to either accept or reject an offer.

Depending on their rank and offers, a student could potentially receive multiple offers.
Once you accept one offer, you are immediately withdrawn from all other offers and you will be contacted by the chair or dean of the program with information about the program orientation date, time, and location.

If a student fails to respond, then the offer expires. If a student rejects an offer three (3) times, the application is removed from the auto-selection application pool but will then be available for manual selection rounds that occur later in the process.

You do have the ability to withdraw your application at any point during the admission cycle. However, once you withdraw your application, you will not be able to apply again until the next application cycle.

What If I Don’t Get Admitted?

The Dental Hygiene program does not maintain a waitlist. Non-admitted applicants can reapply in the next year’s application cycle. You may also want to meet with your advisor. Advisors can assist students in exploring other programs of interest in Ivy Tech’s School of Health Sciences if they have applied several times and have not been accepted into the program. Ivy Tech offers many programs similar to Dental Hygiene that lead to high-demand jobs that may be new to you, but fit your passion to help others.

Selective Admissions

Admission to the Dental Hygiene program at Ivy Tech is highly competitive. The program has a selective admissions process, which means not all students who apply to the program will be accepted. Selective admission processes are needed because there are more people interested in taking courses in our program than there are seats available.

Weighted Point System

A weighted point system is used to evaluate applicants for admission. Student applications are assigned points on the following criteria: Grades, Pre-admission testing, and Certifications as applicable to the program. Applicants with the highest scores are accepted across 8 rounds of auto-selection within each application period. Point totals for applicants receiving admission offers will vary between campuses and application periods. Point totals are not shared.

Total Points Possible: 200 + 2.5 bonus points

  • General Education Course Points: 180 points possible. Points are awarded based on prerequisite course grades.
  • ATI TEAS points: 20 points possible. Total of weighted sub-test point calculations.
  • CDA Certification points: 2.5 optional points possible with approved CDA documentation

Tie Breaker Points:

  • Overall Ivy Tech GPA

General Education Weighted Point System

When multiple course attempts are reported on applicant transcripts (including transcripts from other colleges and universities), the highest earned grade of the first three attempts will be used for the selection decision score through the application period. Points for courses transferred from other institutions will be awarded from the grade recorded on the transcript from the other institution provided transfer credit appears on the Ivy Tech transcript. Points for verified credit (V) or college credit awarded through High School Advanced Placement, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) International Baccalaureate (IB) and Dantes Subject Standardized Test (DSST), will be awarded as indicated below.
