The Bachelor of Science Dental Hygiene program at West is affiliated with the UCLA School of Dentistry. Our students get practical experience serving diverse populations in our own dental clinic, Veterans Dental Clinics, Free Clinic of Simi Valley, and Southbay Children's clinic. The Dental Hygiene program started at West in 1978 as an Associate Degree path. In 2017, it became one of the first programs to be converted to a Bachelor’s Degree path among the California Community Colleges.
