The Shoreline Community College Dental Hygiene Program operates in partnership with the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Dental hygiene students earn a degree through Shoreline and are taught by Shoreline dental hygiene faculty, but the program is completely housed on the University of Washington Seattle campus in the Magnuson Health Sciences Building. The dental hygiene clinic provides dental hygiene and restorative services to patients from the campus and the community.
In accordance with U.S. Department of Education Regulation 34 C.F.R. 668.43 (a) (5) (v), the Dental Hygiene Program at Shoreline Community College has reviewed the Dental Hygienist licensing requirements for Washington State and has determined that a Shoreline dental hygiene graduate would be eligible for licensure in Washington State as a dental hygienist. Shoreline Community College has not made a determination whether the dental hygiene curriculum meets educational requirements for licensure/certification outside of Washington State.
