Are you confused about moving and what different states require to maintain your dental hygiene license? 5 min video and I will explain!
Basically, it depends where you will be working. For example, if you took your dental hygiene education in Canada and wrote your board exam in Canada...but moving to the States, you will need to take the STATE exam.
If you're moving within the STATES (not outside) you won't need to take the board exam again BUT your dental hygiene credentials may be different. Can you administer local anesthetic where you live now? We cannot do that everywhere. Can you have your own dental hygiene practice now? We cannot everywhere.
Watch the video above for more details , its under 5 min so nice and fast for you! But, all in all, I suggest contacting your local dental hygiene association where you're locating to and they can guide you on EXACTLY what you need.
