The headline of this article reads – “Fast Track Job to the Middle Class:  Become a Dental Hygienist.  We thought this information and metrics were so awe inspiring we wanted to share it on our blog.

Think of this, the certification takes only two years for a Dental Hygiene/Hygienist associate program, the average total cost per year is $18,872 with an average two year total program cost of $37,744.  That’s far less than a bachelor’s degree from a university – with the cost of RDH certification approximately equal to the cost of 1 year of college.
