Career Outlook
Employment of dental hygienists is expected to grow by 38 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.

Ongoing research linking oral health and general health will continue to spur the demand for preventative dental services, which dental hygienists often provide.

New and increasingly accurate technologies to help diagnose oral health problems are also expected to increase demand. For example, new tests use saliva samples that a hygienist takes to spot early signs of oral cancer.

A = 30 points
B= 20 points
C= 10 points

Counts 75% of the total points for admission

Multiple attempts policy: When the student has taken a prerequisite course more than once, points will be determined using the highest grade for the initial (first) two course attempts appearing on both Ivy Tech and other college transcripts. A grade of “W” counts as an attempt. Grades for courses over 5 years old may be excluded from consideration with the applicant’s written request included in the application packet. Excluding those grades from the admission point system does not affect calculation of the student’s grade point average (GPA). Students who are granted permission by a regional administrator to retake a class for a third (or higher) time are not exempt from this policy. The program will only consider the highest grade for the initial (first) two course attempts (including a grade of W) regardless of the fact that the student was allowed to take the course for a third (or higher) time.
