For Registered Dental Hygienists licensed in BC

The College of Dental Hygienists of British Columbia requests that hygienists add the Thompson Okanagan Dental Meeting information onto your yearly reporting form. The Thompson Okanagan Dental Society will not be responsible for submitting Continuing Education Credits on behalf of any registrant.

Important Information For RDH’s: You will notice that each dental hygiene-related session has been coded with a letter-number code (e.g. D.3.) corresponding to one or more specific CDHBC QAP content categories (e.g. Non-surgical dental hygiene therapy). It is important to note that these codes are suggestions only, based on the limited information provided within the session outlines. RDH’s will need to use professional judgment when selecting courses and determining which QAP content categories the course addresses. For a complete list of the CDHBC QAP content categories please click here: 2016 CDHBC Continuing Education Competency Categories

Out of Province Registrants

Out-of-BC registrants should consult with their provincial or state regulatory authorities for CE credit requirements.
