About Germanna’s Dental Hygiene Program
The Dental Hygiene Program is an expansion of the Northern Virginia Community College Dental Hygiene Program located in Springfield, Virginia. The program consists of a combination of traditional and distance learning modalities. The curriculum is designed to prepare selected students to serve in a dynamic and growing health profession as valuable members of the Dental Health team.
The Program is also designed to accommodate those students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete the baccalaureate degree in a health-related field. Graduates of the Dental Hygiene Program will receive an Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene from Northern Virginia Community College.
After successful completion of the program and National and Regional Dental Hygiene Board Examinations, the student will be eligible for licensure as a Registered Dental Hygienist (R.D.H.).
For further information on specific courses and general admissions requirements, please refer to the current Northern Virginia Community College Catalog.
