NOTICE for Science Pre-requisites:

On July 13, 2020, the DCA issued an Order Waiving Wet Laboratory Admission Standard for Dental Hygiene Educational Programs.   The Order Waiving Wet Laboratory Admission Standard for Dental Hygiene Educational Programs is extended to December 31, 2020. This order is effective immediately but may be amended as circumstances require.

UPDATE: For the Fall 2021 semester  biomedical sciences prerequisite coursework completed via online DCA will  determine whether the waiver needs to be amended and extended again if community colleges continue with online instruction.  It is advised that students attend science pre-requisite courses with wet labs. Here’s a link to the full waiver: https://www.dca.ca.gov/licensees/dca_waivers.shtml
