The CDHM recognizes Oral Anesthetic, Orthodontic or Restorative modules if taken as part of your dental hygiene education or if they are completed as a separate module from an approved program.
A declaration is required to be included on these Practice Rosters to be able to practice the additional skills. The declaration is considered a legal document so a notarized copy of the certificate of completion from the course/module is required. Go to Registrant log-in and fill out the online declaration form. Once the request is reviewed and approved a new wall certificate will be available in digital format and you can practice the additional skill.
In order to perform the ‘Included Practices’ described in section 2(2) (a) to (c) of the Act without supervision by a dentist, a registered dental hygienist must be on the Extended Practices Roster. In order to be eligible to be on the Extended Practices Roster, a registered dental hygienist must have practiced dental hygiene for not less than 3,000 hours.
Once the 3,000 hour requirement has been met, go to Registrant log-in and fill out the online declaration form. Once the request is reviewed and approved a new wall certificate will be available in digital format and you can practice the abovementioned ‘Included Practices’ without supervision by a dentist.
A notarized copy from a Notary Public of the appropriate name change document, such as a marriage certificate or an official government issued credential, must be uploaded to your profile page for review/approval by the Board of Assessors. A wall certificate will be available in digital format with the new name upon approval. Again, these forms can be found by going to your Registrant log-in.
