Note: All science prerequisites need to be completed within the last seven years.
The Diablo Valley College Dental Hygiene Program requires our prospective dental hygiene students to observe an oral prophylaxis or periodontal maintenance appointment, and a nonsurgical periodontal therapy appointment. This form must be completed and signed by the dentist/hygienist regardless of employment experience of the prospective applicant.
We understand the difficulty some applicants are having in completing the dental office observation due to restrictions caused by COVID19. During the pandemic we will allow the option to view videos of dental hygiene procedures and write a reflective paper. Applicants will need to follow the instruction provided to take advantage of this option.
Our goal is that our applicants will be better informed regarding their chosen career path.
