To become a dental hygienist in United States you must complete a two-year program that awards an associate’s degree or certification in a dental hygienist school that is accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA).
Dental hygienists school programs usually require both general education courses and courses specific to the field of dental hygiene. General education courses important to dental hygiene degrees include college level algebra, biology, and chemistry. Courses specific to dental hygiene may include dental pharmacology, radiography, and periodontology.
All dental hygienists in the United States must be licensed by the state in which they practice, after completing the minimum of two years of school to become a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH).

Because otherwise bacteria have a field day in your filthy mouth. They eat away your teeth, your gums, and if things get bad enough, the infection can spread to your blood and you can get septic.

Brush at least twice a day. Floss if you’re smart.
