Hygiene Certification Board, DHEC, and the Commission on             interactive online sessions
Dental Accreditation, and taking a leadership role in the
development of National Competencies for the dental hygiene
profession. We believe these competencies are the basis
for excellence in dental hygiene education and practice.
What are the National Competencies?
   The National Competencies are used to describe the
essential knowledge, skills and attitudes important for the
practice of a profession; in this particular document these
competencies describe the foundation necessary for entry
into the dental hygiene profession in Canada. They support
the dental hygiene process of care by more clearly articulating
the abilities inherent in the assessment, diagnosis, planning,
implementation and evaluation of dental hygiene services.
Why do we need national dental hygiene competencies?
   These competencies were developed to provide one
national standard for Canadian dental hygiene education,
accreditation, examination and regulation.
