CNCC Pre-Dental Hygiene Program

As such CNCC is continuously seeking exceptional students to attend the program. Some students are born exceptional, some are made. At CNCC we believe that our pre-DH program can make good students great students, and great students exceptional students.

Nationally many more individuals apply to dental hygiene programs than get accepted (only 33% of qualified applicants are accepted into dental hygiene programs each year). You need a good prerequisite experience and it can be gained here at Colorado Northwestern Community College.

Being a CNCC Pre-Dental Hygiene Student more than doubles your chances of gaining a seat in our DH program!
