Before you can work as a dental hygienist, you would need to take one of the following General Dental Council (GDC) approved courses:

  • a foundation degree in oral health science
  • a diploma of higher education (DipHE) in dental hygiene, or dental hygiene and dental therapy
  • a degree in oral health science, or dental therapy and dental hygiene.

The foundation degree and DipHE courses normally take two years to complete. The degree course usually takes three years, full-time.

See the GDC website for a list of approved courses and providers.

  • General Dental Council (Opens new window)

To do a course, you would usually need:

  • five GCSEs (A-C), including English and a biological science
  • two A levels (preferably in science subjects), or a recognised dental nurse qualification.

Experience as a dental nurse may help you.

Check with individual course providers for exact entry requirements as other qualifications may also be accepted.

You would also need to pass background checks by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), as you would be working with children and vulnerable adults. See the DBS website for more information.

  • Disclosure and Barring Service  (Home Office website)

See the British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) website for a list of training schools. For course funding information, see the NHS Business Services Authority website.
