Starting in January, Lewis-Clark State College will again offer students a pathway toward a dental hygiene degree thanks to North Idaho College and Heritage Health.
LC State and NIC will work together on a new two-year program, which will award Associate of Applied Science degrees in dental hygiene and prepare graduates to take the national exam to become a registered dental hygienist.
NIC is partnering with Heritage Health, which will serve as the location for clinical and laboratory practice for Coeur d’Alene students. Students must complete prerequisite coursework to be eligible to apply for admission into the program.
The deadline to apply for the spring semester is Oct. 8. Students interested in applying can access www.lcsc.edu/dentalhygiene.
The program will use an every-other year admission cycle so the next application won’t open until the fall 2022 semester.
