I too am interested in moving to Costa Rica. I have been a dental hygienist for 10 years in Arizona. I was wondering what the licensing process was like?beth

Did either of you find out any information about Costa Rica? I too am interested in the requirements to work as a DH in CR.

There is no such thing as dental hygienists in Costa Rica. The College of Dental Sugeons only licenses Dentists. Us, dentists, do the perio and prophys. You could work as dental assistants and if you have experience you might be allowed to do some DH. Salary for a Dental Assistant around $400.00 a month.
