The exam is not very tough but you need to clear your board exams for that.
nbde part 1 and nbde part 2 and then yu can apply for exam.
I hope this help.
I have material available for sale so please let me know if you wish to buy it.I am selling it cheaper then regular price as i used it once to study.
Which is good becoz it had hand written notes that helps for exams.

hi everybody,
it looks like they accept license of another state, even if you have license from non accredated school
it will be a good opportunity for foreign trained dentists.

Fugi9 in Richmond Hill, Ontario said: Anyone planning to take DH in Ontario? Im a FTD (foreign trained dentist) as well and planning to take DH here.

Is Florida the only State where FTD can be licensed as DH?

Do ppl find it hard to find work as a DH after graduation? Cuz i know tuition for DH schools are pricey and not sure if its worth the risk...

Do other FTD know if other countries like Australia, NZ, UK allow FTD to practice after taking the exams there without going back to school?

and no im not japanese...haha

I think Australia might let you. I'm not 100% sure. You can google their accreditation board. You will find info on it.

You will need to take NBDE part 1 to be eliglble to apply to 2 or 3 years dental program. some schools require or recommend that you also take part 2. some school has 2 years program and some has 3 years. You will need to have your transcripts from your dental school evaluated by ECE.

Brian Ramsey in Jupiter, Florida said: My wife is a foreign trained dentist from the PHilippines, and quickly became a Dental Hygienist after moving here to Florida. I will pass along an EXREMELY helpful tip here for any foreign dentist looking to become a hygienist here....go to the website janewrdh.com Jane weiner has been helping foreign dentists become hygienists here for years. She has a three day course held around the state at different times and she will basically give you exactly the materials you will need to pass the national and state boards(otherwise you will be reading lots and lots of books). My wife did not pass the first time...after taking janes course however she easily passed it the second time. Good luck!

Hi Nora,

Me 2 I am foreign trained dentist too from Syria.. as far as I know we can work as dental hyig in Florida ... but we have to :

1) Pass NBDE PART ONE+ NBDE PART 2
OR
PASS NBDHE(National board dental hyig exam)(170$)

2)pass the clinical exam.(800$)
3) pass the Florida law exam.

then you can practice as a dental hyig...

but I hear that this option is only for green card holder!! make sure of that.. I am not quite sure !!

correct me guys if I am wrong!!

best of luck all

To be able to practice as an hygienist in Texas State, you first have to pass the DHNB and then go back to the dental school for two years, you can study at any of the branches of University of Texas that offers Dental Hygiene degree, then submit all the paperwork to the State of Texas Dental Board, to get your license, also before to come back to school you must have all your vaccinations done specially the Hep B (3 doses). Good look it isn't easy without much money.

For the time being look for a job as dental assistant, but you also will need to pass an examination on line to get your certificate and then submit it among with other papers to the Texas State Dental Board.

I don't think your spanish has improved just in 5 months, spanish is an absolutely complicated language, I've heard people talking who think just exactly like u, and let me express my sympathy, and if u think my language is spanish why didn't you reply this in that language, the answer is logic: you don't have the slightest idea how to write it; you think that just because my email address?, your brain and mind are so narrow that you don't even think that I probably speak french or italian. U inspired me sorry.

I lived in Georgia and I could not understand simple directions from some southerners because of their accent, such trashing of the English language made me sick. Got your leg!!
If he can't be understood, maybe wasim daoud could practice without problem for people who speak his first language.

QUOTE who="Charlie in Norcross, Georgia"]Agreed. When I was taught customer relations we were advised that one must be polite and respectful to a client and to foster confidence from the customer. I ask you, what sort of "chair-side manner" and confidence do you think "wasim daoud" would elicit from patients? Would you let him put his fingers in YOUR mouth?

That trashing of the English language that Jerry refers to is about as unpleasant as seeing the dentist picking his nose would be to my eyes.
