What kinds of courses do you need to take to be a dental hygienist?
I didn't major in dental hygiene, but there was someone I knew that became a dental assistant. You take any classes in high school that you need to graduate. College courses are the ones that you need to focus on besides your generals. You need to check the college or university you are planning on going to in order to get the degree. A few biology classes and health classes were required that I remember. She also went to a community college for her basic courses and finished at a technical college to earn her degree. She had to pass a test, and her GPA had to be a 3.5 or higher to just be a dental assistant.
