There is an on-line prep test but it isn't an easy thing to study for as it is based on case studies and is multiple choice and it always seems as if there are more than one right answer it is just a case of which is the most right! It is really a matter of reviewing your course data and being able to tie it all together.

hello..
there is no one book or course study guide to study of off?

Mosby's is an easier read compared to Wilkins. This will be the only
option for a one book study guide. Sounds like you dont want to read either.

The only other option I see for you is to email RDH tutors and see
if you can sign up for the NDHCBE review.

You are right! I dont want to read that much bc im worried I might over study. The only material I studied for for the national boards here in Texas is the Dallas review which was SO SO simplified and not too in depth.

Our instructors kept telling us to ONLY read the Mosby and WIlkins book but it was just too much information. So i was hoping that maybe the Canadian boards would probably have something similar =)

I graduated 2 years ago, and there was no such thing.

Instead, we simply used the Mosby's prep book for the USA board exam. This was a touch off, given that the US focuses on things differently and uses a different tooth numbering system. Even this book was too much info, but much of my class took both the US and Canadian board exams - everyone easily passed both exams mainly due to solid classroom instruction.

if you do the prep test that the ndhcb has on the website, those are the type of q's that are on the board.
make sure you know ethics, and client assessment (which was drugs, diseases and conditions, who needed pre-meds) and pathology
i dont think that you need to study in depth but i did find that reading through the wilkins textbook was helpful for me!

Hello,

I am a Dental Hygienist currently licensed and practicing in the state of Missouri in the US. I have been practicing hygiene for over 3 years now and will be moving to Victoria B.C. in the late fall of 2009. I graduated form the University of Maine at Augusta (an accredited program here in the US), have passed the US National Boards and the Northeast Regional Boards. I would greatly appreciate any advice as to where or how I can start applying for my BC Hygiene License.

Do you know if I have to take the Canadian exams too, or do they allow reciprocity since I have been practicing for over 3 years?

Thanks for your time!

I have been working as a Hygienist in the US for several years. I will be moving to Vancouver and taking the National Exam for Canada and I am wondering if anyone has done the RDHtutor.com prep course for the exam. I can't find any comments on that, which I think is quite strange as many people seem to be interested in preperation classes. Can anyone who has actually done the course tell me if it is worth the money? I have been out of school for quite a while so I think it may be a good idea for me.

I tried the Rdhtutors.ca website and it's down. Have they shutdown? Are there any other resources that I could use other than Mosby's and Wilkins in prep for the Canadian National Dental Hygiene Exam? Please let me know. Thanks much!
