The Freshman Dental Hygiene Guarantee Program (FRDH) is a highly selective program that identifies students during freshman admission to the University of Minnesota for guaranteed entry into the School of Dentistry's Dental Hygiene program. Students admitted to the FRDH program will spend their first year in the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) for prerequisite coursework and begin the Dental Hygiene (DH) Program the following year. Students who complete the program will graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene.
