How to Become a Dental Hygienist in Manitoba – MB
By allied health world contributing writer
Dental hygienist training in Manitoba takes from three to four years to complete and usually results in a diploma. The College of Dental Hygienists of Manitoba lists competencies that all dental hygienists practicing within the province must meet. These competencies are taught in the dental hygiene education programs you will encounter in Manitoba. Areas include assessment (of the patient’s condition, formulating a diagnosis, etc.), planning (formulating goals and objectives for the patient based on the data collected); implementation (activating a dental hygiene care plan with the patient and other professionals); and evaluation (evaluating the effectiveness of the dental hygiene care plan).
All dental hygienists must be registered in order to work in Manitoba. For practicing registered dental hygienists, a completed application form, proof of dental hygiene education, proof of passing the National Dental Hygiene Certification Examination, proof of completion of a CPR course during the past year, proof that you have $3 million liability insurance coverage, an application fee of $75 and a registration fee of $350 must be sent to The College Of Dental Hygienists Of Manitoba, 109-420 Des Meurons Street, Winnipeg, MB R2H2N9. In addition, if one wishes to appear on the register of specific practice rosters (such as local anesthetic or orthodontic rosters), one must also furnish proof of education in that area.
