COURSE INFORMATION

The Division of Continuing Dental Education in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta offers two courses for the Dental Hygiene Refresher Course:

  • A five day course scheduled from Monday, June 10 to Friday, June 14, 2019
     
  • A ten day course scheduled from Monday, June 17 to Friday, June 21, 2019 (business days only)
     

FIVE DAY COURSE
The 5-day Dental Hygiene Refresher Course is designed for dental hygiene graduates who:

  • Have been out of practice for less than 5 years and are wishing to re-enter the dental hygiene workforce, or
     
  • Are currently in the workforce and seeking to upgrade their competencies.

This 5-day course will be comprised of a 3 month online, pre-study component and a five day on-site clinical component. Topics will include the Dental Hygiene Process of Care, radiology theory, technique and interpretation, instrument maintenance and reprocessing, sealants, dental hygiene instrumentation and periodontal debridement and clinical care on clients in the Oral Health Clinic at the University of Alberta. Continual reflection, assessment and feedback will be provided throughout the online and on-site components.
 

TEN DAY COURSE
The 10-day Dental Hygiene Refresher Course is designed for dental hygiene participants who:

  • Have been out of practice for more than 5 years, or
     
  • Have graduated from a dental hygiene program greater than 15 years ago.

This 10-day course will be comprised of a 3 month online, pre-study component and a ten day on-site clinical component. Topics will include the Dental Hygiene Process of Care, radiology theory, technique and interpretation, instrument maintenance and reprocessing, sealants, dental hygiene instrumentation, including ultrasonic instrumentation and periodontal debridement and clinical care on clients in the Oral Health Clinic at the University of Alberta. Continual reflection, assessment and feedback will be provided throughout the online and on-site components.
 

BOTH 5-DAY AND 10- DAY COURSES
The courses will consist of individualized instruction and continuous assessment and evaluation of clinical procedures performed. It is expected that participants have received previous training and knowledge in instrumentation skills and have the ability to use an explorer, probe and a full complement of periodontal instruments (graceys, universals and sickles). Participants are also expected to have proper eye wear (appropriate eye protection is required for infection prevention and
control).

These courses DO NOT re-certify participants in the delivery of local anesthesia nor do they guarantee that participants will acquire the necessary competencies for Entry to Practice as determined by the College of Registered Dental Hygienists of Alberta (CRDHA). Additional education and/or practice may be required by the CRDHA.

At the end of the course, the Course Coordinator will provide a report to the CRDHA Registrar for each participant who was required to complete the Refresher Course as a condition of registration, transfer to General membership, or reinstatement of registration with the CRDHA. The report will include any recommendations for further instruction or clinical practicum that may be made by the Clinical Instructors and Course Coordinator.

Readings, reflections, video lectures, video resources and other learning activities will help prepare participants for the five day on-site component, and help supplement and enrich their preparations for returning to the work force.
  • Once registered for the Dental Hygiene Refresher course, participants will receive information regarding the online Quality Assurance test. An additional testing fee of $125 plus GST will be required at a later date.
     
  • Dental hygienists from out of province should confirm that completion of this course will meet the requirements for registration in the province or territory where they will be applying for registration/licensure.
