For more information on some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the RDHAP educational course and RDHAP licensing procedures in the State of California, please review this PDF document.
Your eligibility for the RDHAP license needs to be confirmed with the DENTAL HYGIENE COMMITTEE OF CALIFORNIA. Pacific provides the continuing education course only. It is the student's responsibility to confirm if college units and foreign trained dental provider degrees are eligible for licensing purposes. It is the student's responsibility to confirm this with the DHCC and students are encouraged to do this prior to enrollment in the course.
Further details about these requirements are available on the California Dental Hygiene Committee website. Note that the 150-hour educational program (this course) can be taken at any time and does not require the completion of the other requirements listed above. The RDHAP license may be applied for at any time after completion of this course, when the other requirements outlined above have been satisfied. For inquiries about requirements for or applying for the RDHAP license, please contact the California Dental Hygiene Committee.
