Welcome to the new Dental Hygiene Committee of California (DHCC) web site. We are proud and excited that DHCC is the first of its kind in the United States.
The DHCC will consist of nine members appointed by the Governor; four public members, one practicing dentist and four dental hygienists. The responsibilities of DHCC include issuing, reviewing, and revoking licenses as well as developing and administering examinations. Additional functions include adopting regulations, determining fees and continuing education requirements for all hygiene licensure categories.
As of April 1, 2014, the Dental Hygiene Committee of California has moved to a new office. Same building, different suite!
Our new address is:
Dental Hygiene Committee of California
2005 Evergreen Street, Suite 2050
Sacramento, CA 95815
EFFECTIVE January 1, 2014, new graduates will be able to obtain licensure in California by passing the dental hygiene clinical examination offered by the Central Regional Dental Testing Services, Inc. (CRDT’s). The application for licensure can be found at: http://www.dhcc.ca.gov/formspubs/crdts.pdf
You may contact CRDTS for the examination schedule at: http://www.crdts.org/
The DHCC now has a General Email Inbox to contact staff about any DHCC issues. Please submit your inquiries or issues to: email@example.com
At this time, dental hygiene licenses and permits cannot be renewed online.
