教育课程评估 Assessment of Course of Study - 飞出国
Please note the CDHO does not provide informal assessments. Completed applications are reviewed to ascertain whether the applicant meets the current registration requirements. The application will not be processed if completed improperly or if it does not contain the appropriate supporting documentation.
If an applicant is not eligible to sit the NDHCB examination and wishes to proceed with an application to the CDHO, the application will be referred to the Registration Committee of the CDHO to determine if the applicant’s course of study meets the educational requirements of the CDHO. The applicant must arrange to have an original detailed course description submitted directly to the CDHO from her/his institute of graduation, as well as a detailed description of all the subjects taken within the applicant’s course of study and the number of clinical hours that were actually spent on scaling, root planing and prophylaxis procedures, as well as how many and what types of clients the applicant performed these procedures on during the course of study. The course descriptions must relate to the applicant’s years of study.
The CDHO requires an applicant to have reasonable fluency in either English or French. This is assessed informally through the applicant’s ability to successfully complete the written examination(s) and clinical competency assessment. Please note that all documents submitted in languages other than English or French must include official translations.
Once a completed application package and the supporting documentation have been submitted, it takes approximately three (3) months for the course of study to be assessed and a decision to be handed down by the Registration Committee.
The fee for an assessment is $250.00. If successful, this fee is credited towards the initial certificate of registration fee.
课程对等性 Equivalency - 飞出国
To determine equivalency, the Registration Committee reviews all the documentation submitted by an applicant to determine what courses taken by the applicant are relevant to dental hygiene. The process is divided into four (4) sections (behavioural sciences, biomedical sciences, oral health sciences, and dental hygiene theory and practice), which address different required elements of course content and application that must be found within the applicant’s course of study to establish equivalence. It is more difficult to assess courses that were not directly in dental hygiene as the Committee will be reviewing the applicant’s course of study for elements of therapeutic/preventive therapy that include preclinical practice and the dental hygiene process of care with respect to a variety of patients/clients. In addition, the Committee will review the applicant’s course of study to determine if the areas of oral health education, health promotion and professional practice are covered in sufficient scope and depth to ensure equivalency.
牙科专业申请人 Applicants Who Graduated in Dentistry - 飞出国
A non-exemptible requirement for registration as a dental hygienist in Ontario is that an applicant must have graduated from a recognized, accredited dental hygiene program or one considered substantially equivalent by the Registration Committee of the CDHO. In Ontario, dental hygiene is considered a separate and distinct health profession from dentistry. Work experience is not considered a substitute for training in a supervised educational setting. Therefore, unless an applicant has successfully completed a program of study in dental hygiene in addition to her/his degree in dentistry, it is unlikely that the applicant’s course of study would be considered equivalent to a recognized accredited dental hygiene program.
The Registration Committee has, over the years, reviewed many courses of study received from applicants who graduated in dentistry from Colleges/Universities in Bangladesh, China, Croatia, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Iraq, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Syria, United States of America, and Yugoslavia. Although the members of the Committee recognized that there was overlap, they noted that only rarely does a program of study in dentistry focus on the dental hygiene process of care. Most importantly, the Committee felt that the courses reviewed did not ensure competence in the controlled acts of scaling and root planing relative to the dental hygiene process of care. Therefore, these applicants’ courses of study were not considered equivalent to a recognized accredited dental hygiene program and the applicants were not eligible to sit the CDHO’s certificate of registration examinations.
These applicants would be required to complete an approved dental hygiene program prior to re-applying to the CDHO. In Ontario, the educational institutions that teach dental hygiene, do not normally take part-time students. Therefore, it is usually necessary for an applicant to be first accepted into the dental hygiene program where s/he may receive credit for prior learning. Any prior learning assessment or credit would have to be determined by the dental hygiene program to which the applicant applies. The CDHO has no control over the number of credits, if any, that an applicant who applies to a dental hygiene program in Ontario receives for prior learning.

A Guide to the Process of Being Registered as a Dental Hygienist in Ontario
For Graduates of Non-Accredited Dental Hygiene Programs*
The CDHO is responsible for ensuring that an applicant meets all the current registration requirements prior to being permitted to register as a dental hygienist in Ontario. It is a non-exemptible requirement for registration in Ontario that an applicant must have graduated from a recognized accredited dental hygiene program or one considered substantially equivalent by the Registration Committee of the CDHO.
Dental hygiene programs completed on or after March 26, 2015 in Canada or the United States of America will no longer be considered to meet the registration requirements, if they are not accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada or by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation.
a) Written Certification Examination
An applicant must first successfully complete the exam set by the National Dental Hygiene Certification Board (NDHCB). To determine whether s/he is eligible to sit the NDHCB’s written examination, the applicant contacts the NDHCB directly at 1929 Russell Road, Suite 322, Ottawa, Ontario, K1G 4G3, telephone 613-260-8156, fax 613-260-8511 or by e-mail at [email protected] The fees and dates for the NDHCB exams are available on the NDHCB website at http://www.ndhcb.ca/en/exam_application.php.
Generally, applicants deemed eligible to sit the written examination by the NDHCB will have little difficulty meeting the remainder of the CDHO’s educational requirements. The NDHCB is separate from the CDHO and conducts its own assessment of applicants.
If an applicant is not eligible to sit the NDHCB examination and wishes to proceed with an application to the CDHO, the application will be referred to the Registration Committee of the CDHO to determine if the applicant’s course of study meets the educational requirements of the CDHO.
b) Clinical Competency Evaluation
The applicant must successfully complete the NDCHB examination prior to participating in the clinicalcompetency evaluation.
Once an applicant has successfully completed the NDHCB examination, s/he must submit a completed clinical competency evaluation application form. Please refer to Examinations on our website for further information on the clinical competency evaluation.

The first step in the application process is completion of the online Jurisprudence Education Module which is comprised of an educational course and an examination. Applicants must demonstrate familiarity with the rules and regulations governing the practice of dental hygiene in Ontario. The Jurisprudence Education Module is available in English and French at www.cdho.org. There is no fee to complete the educational component, however the application fee of $75 must be submitted online in order to complete the examination portion of the module.
Refresher Course/Professional Competency Assessment
If an applicant graduated more than three (3) years prior to the application and has not practised dental hygiene in a recognized jurisdiction within the three years, s/he must successfully complete an approved clinical refresher course (or professional competency assessment, set or approved by the Registration Committee). Applicants should contact the CDHO prior to participating in a clinical refresher course to ensure that it is approved.
Professional Liability Insurance
All registrants must maintain professional liability insurance with a minimum of $1,000,000 coverage for each occurrence and a deductible of no more than $10,000. Applicants are required to have coverage in place before being registered. Professional liability insurance can be obtained from the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association, 1-800-267-5235, Ontario Dental Hygienists’ Association, 1-800-315-ODHA. Applicants may also
contact the broker of their choice.
Application files are confidential. Release of information to a third party (i.e. employer, spouse, agency) requires written authorization from the applicant.
All documents submitted in languages other than English or French must include official translations.
Subsection 29 (1) and (4) 1 of the Ontario Regulations 36/12 made under the Dental Hygiene Act, 1991 require that applicants be of good character in order to obtain a certificate of registration. “Good Character” is determined based on the police check, which is one of the requirements, and on the responses to the declaration on the Registration Forms. Applicants are required to answer all questions on the declaration with honesty and integrity. If an applicant answers “Yes” to any of the declaration questions or if concerns are identified as result of the police check, the application may be referred to the Registration Committee. In such cases the applicant is given 30 days to provide additional information. The Registration Committee considers whether or not the issues identified affect the applicant’s suitability to practise the profession. Applicants who are not satisfied with a registration decision can appeal the decision to the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board.
