Vaccine Hesitancy – What does the Dental Hygienist need to know?
November 29, 2019
The Comprehensive Refresher Program modules were developed by a team of BC Dental Hygiene educators. This self-study review program has been tailored to suit all dental hygienists – from those who completed their dental hygiene education many years ago, right up to the most recent graduates. This refresher program is flexible and can be customized to give you just what you need. It consists of 21 self-study modules, with each module focussing on a specific area of dental hygiene practice. These modules help hygienists to both prepare for the CDHBC’s QAP Assessment Tool, and to address individual learning goals. Originally developed in 2012, these modules have been re-written to include up-to-date information and address current QAP criteria. These modules are sold as downloadable pdf documents.
For a limited time only, modules are on sale for $25 each at SHOP BCDHA.

This guide has been developed by the British Columbia Dental Hygienists’ Association for use by dental hygienists who are not working in the traditional dental practice setting. This guide is available to dental hygienists that operate their own dental hygiene practices. NOTE: The fee guide comes into effect February 1st. Dental hygienists who work in the traditional dentist office setting will continue to bill using the dentist’s number and fees. Click here to view the CDHA National List of Service Codes
