hey PhungPham, if you want you can apply to the 2 yrs community college for dental hygiene program, and get RDH. Thsi is full time study, then you have to get loan to pay tuition and other xepences for your fammily.
We are in the same boat. English is chalenging when you have to deal with profesinalism. I am enjoy being a dental hygienist now. Good Luck!

hi lisa,
sorry to say but unfortunately you are still considered as a foreigned trained dentist or dental hygienist(i would say).You could apply on certain state just like the others to become a licensed dental hygienist, otherwise you cant get a job without going thru the scrutiny of passing all the requirements or qualification of each states to become a dentist or hygienist besides you have to be a citizen or an immigrant first.

Manuel in Winter Haven, Florida said: you have to pass national dental board part 2 also to be considered for hygiene clinical exam.OR you can pass natioal dental hygiene board which is very easy and u will be eligible for clinical exam.
English is not a requirement by board as mentioned in florida Dental Laws chapter 466 as u will be working under direct supervision of a dentist .
I work for a DENTIST who dont speak english, we provide excellent service and produce over 80,000 a month! Dentistry is an art and skill. keep moving.

Hi, my name is Sabrina and I'm a foreign dentist. I'm about to take the NBDE 2 and I'd like to know In what site you find the information that mention that after taking the NBDE 2 you can only pass the clinical part of the dental hygiene board to be an hygienist? Please write me soon.
Thanks a lot

Hi, Mary!

I am also FTD and have been working as a DA.
I passed Dental Hygiene written exam last July. It was not easy for me, since I was not preparing for it particularly.
There is a book-Dental Hygiene Review ( Caren. M Barenes and Michelle L.Sensat), that I was reading couple of days( because I had no time and was getting ready for NBDE part1) .
Luckily, I passed it( not great score, but it doesn’t matter). There are great books to prepare for this exam-Mosby's Comprehensive Review of Dental Hygiene and
Clinical Practice of the Dental Hygienist—by Esther M. Wilkins

HOPE THIS HELPS!
GOOD LUCK!

Any Swedish trained dental hygienist now licensed in California.

I'm in CA now and willing to challenge the exams (National and practical exams) without having to go back to school. Is this possible?

Thank you

Hey Swedish person! Don't be lazy to go to school again. There are so many new things to learn that you did not learn in your country.In this life nothing is for free. I hope you won't be able to take the exams without going to school again.I've been to Dental School in another country for many years and still went to school again in the U.S., and there were sooooooo many new things that I had to learn to be able to pass the exams. Looks like there is an avalanche of professionals in this field heading to the U.S., from other countries, to work as dental hygienist.
My opinion is that U.S. citizens should be given priority and, if there is lack of candidates, then foreigners could be selected. The "party" is just too much!!!

hi I don't think you can work or it can help you in changing your status. To convert vistor to H1 status one need bachalor degree but dental hygienst is an associate degree which may not help you in changing your staus. Don't get depressed just you conform this from a law firm.

If you have access to the internet, just type the word "bachelor's degree" meaning, duh? As far as I know, it means a master degree that lasts 4 years, like, Registered Nurse, Dentistry, Psycology,Law, etc

Martine meyigre maybe try to learn English a little more just becuase it may help you with translations.

Can I ask if you are a dentist would you not know what a bachelors degree is? In your country did you not obtain a degree in dentistry?
