    4. Hi!
      Been working as a dental assistant here at KSA with 2yrs and more chairside experience.i just wonder if we registered nurses are allowed to take the examination directly? Pass or fail..take a risk..thank you!

      • Hi, Heidi!

        According to PRC and TESDA, “in order to be admitted to the Licensure Examination for Dental Hygienists, an applicant must have finished the two years certificate in dental hygiene conferred by a recognized and legally constituted college, or school of dentistry registered with TESDA.” We’re guessing that means “no.” We’re not sure if that rule is absolute, though, so you might still want to check with either TESDA or PRC to be sure.

        :(

    5. hi! do u hav a very short course for this? i just need a certificate of dental nursing, thanks!

      • Hi, Jenna!

        TESDA doesn’t seem to be offering any short courses related to dental hygiene right now. The only schools/training centers authorized to offer it is offering the course for 2 years.
