Value of a U-M Degree

Dental Hygiene Students Speak

"A Michigan degree opens doors" is not just a slogan:

  • U-M's dental hygiene programs are part of a nationally recognized dental school at a top research university.
  • Hiring managers know that U-M graduates are well educated and well prepared for the responsibilities of their new career.
  • Graduate admissions counselors know that U-M students will be successful in master's and doctoral programs because of the excellent grounding they received as undergrads.
  • As a U-M degree holder, you will be joining one of the world's largest living alumni bodies, with 500,000+ grads in more than 100 countries around the world.
  • You'll also be part of the Dental Hygiene "family," where you will develop lifelong relationships.

Michigan alumni have sat in the Oval Office, walked on the moon, won Nobel prizes, earned Rhodes and Marshall scholarships, and led Fortune 500 companies. Your University of Michigan degree will give you the background and experience you need to achieve success in your chosen profession.
