Should I get an associates or bachelors in dental hygiene?

I will be separating from Active Duty soon, and I want to pursue a career in Dental Hygiene. I have looked into many, many schools and the waiting list to get into the program is 2 to 3 years long, and that’s just for an associates degree. Should I pursue a 4 year bachelors degree instead?

Thank you for your service! It’s exciting to hear that you want to pursue a career in dental hygiene! As for the 2 – 3 year waiting list, that seems like a long time. Do you have your pre-requisites completed? If not, you could complete those in the meantime. There’s also a growing number of hygiene schools that offer bachelors programs. If the waiting list to get into an associates program is so long, it might be quicker to get your bachelors anyway.
