How to Apply to the Dental Hygiene Program



Thank you for your interest in the Virginia Peninsula Community College Dental Hygiene Program. The College Local Board has approved a plan to pause new enrollment in the Dental Hygiene Education Program.

We understand the effort students devote to preparing to apply and applaud your hard work and diligence. It is our sincere hope that you will continue to pursue your educational goals at Virginia Peninsula Community College. We encourage you to continue to work closely with your academic advisor.

We encourage you to explore VPCC’s many allied health and health science certificate and degree programs, as well as our workforce credential programs.
