    If you want to receive a BS in Dental Hygiene, it can take between 4 to six years. But it depends on the program. You could take the first two years of your prerequisites at any accredited college and transfer (you don’t have to transfer if the program is available at your university) to a dental hygiene program somewhere else for the last two years and receive a BS in Dental Hygiene after completion. It could take six years only if you receive a first degree in something else and decide to change your mind to wanting to receive a degree in Dental Hygiene, which will be another extra two years…but that’s only if you have the prerequisites or core curriculum first…which is usually….the first year of chemistry I& II, biology I&II, anatomy and physiology I&II, and other stuff…It’s similar to nursing school. I believe rad tech is about the same…The tuition totally depends …if it is a private or public school…if you are attending out of state or not…Oh and don’t be confused with dental assistant and dental hygienist…the two are different…If you want to be a dental assistant you could go to a medical technical college such as GMI and it will take less time to complete and less requirements…I hope that helps…
