Entry-to-Practice Canadian Competencies for Dental Hygienists

Posted Date: 12/9/2021

The Federation of Dental Hygiene Regulators of Canada (FDHRC) has just published the Entry-to-Practice Canadian Competencies for Dental Hygienists (EPCCoDH). This is a single, up-to-date set of national entry-to-practice competencies for dental hygienists.
 
It is the FDHRC’s goal that the new competencies will be used across Canada for purposes that include designing educational dental hygiene programs, accreditation, assessments and professional development; regulating dental hygienists’ entry-to-practice, re-entry and continuing competence; and comparing dental hygiene credentials, including internationally.
