An Associate of Applied Science degree in dental hygiene is awarded by Sheridan College following completion of the prerequisites and dental hygiene prescribed study. An optional Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene degree is awarded by the University of Wyoming following completion of the Associate of Applied Science in dental hygiene, the University Studies Program, and other requirements of the University of Wyoming, for a total of 120 credit hours including 42 upper level hours, 30 of which must be from the University of Wyoming.
