The National Dental Hygiene Certification Board (NDHCB) is once again asking you, as Dental Hygiene Program Director/Department Head or designate, to recommend eligibility for students or graduates from your school who have applied for the January 2019 National Dental Hygiene Certification Examination (NDHCE). 



All you need to do is access the link sent to you by e-mail and log in using the username (your email and create a password by yourself). Depending on your computer security/firewall system you could be asked if you are sure that this is a legitimate link/site; please grant permission to continue.


Once you are in, you will find a list of all applicants from your school (graduates and/or students) for the next exam. You will need to:

  • check your list (names, month/year of graduation, pictures)

  • confirm that each applicant is eligible (or not) by "accepting" or "rejecting" each

  • To accept or reject applicants you can do it in bulk or individually.


Bulk edit:




After you select Edit at the top of the application, a new window will open






Individual edit :











Select the Update button




To be eligible applicants must:

  • be expected to graduate (within 4 months of the application deadline) if they are still students; or

  • hold a valid diploma and completed transcript if they are applying as graduates (some of them might have graduated a few years ago and we ask for your collaboration to confirm with the school registrar that they have indeed graduated from your program).


If you find any that should not be eligible just click the "reject" box and a memo field will appear; please give a reason for denying eligibility for each. You can also "skip" an individual for now and approve/reject the rest but don't forget to log back in later to approve or reject that applicant before November 30, 2018 at 23:59.


Do not forget to click the box at the bottom of the page to certify that the approved applicants are eligible for the January 2019 examination and press "Next". Please don't press multiple times; depending on the speed of your connection, it could take a few seconds before the page is fully uploaded. You will then be directed to a "thank you" page and will receive a confirmation email from us.


Please note you have until November 30, 2018 (at 23:59 hrs.) to access the online list and confirm (or reject) eligibility for ALL applicants from your school.


As in the past, it is still your responsibility to inform the NDHCB by email, no later than fifteen (15) days prior to the examination date (by January 6, 2019) should any student's status no longer be to complete their dental hygiene program requirements by March 22, 2019.


We thank you for your collaboration in this process and would like to remind you to check out the 1-hour PowerPoint presentation available on our website for Dental Hygiene Educators to help them prepare their students for this important exam (see www.ndhcb.ca/#!presentation/c1wc5)
