You would be able to usually as long as it is within the same state most credits transfer easily between community colleges and universities. I would look into community colleges that offer a dental hygiene program tho. They are usually cheaper and offer a more extensive program. I would also call a few dentists in the area and ask if there are any colleges they wouldn’t hire from(because they continually turn out bad students). Some colleges say they are fully accredited to pull you in but dont mention the fact that they arent accredited by the ADA(american dental association). These programs are usually shorter and more expensive. You should be going to school where they have a full dental clinic that sees the public on a daily basis and you get hands on experience for about 2yrs.
