Dental Hygiene Refresher Program (DHRP)

Reinvigorate Your RDH Career

The DHRP is a one-of-a-kind dental hygiene clinical skills and knowledge review and update that has run twice a year since 1988.  The dental refresher classes are conducted over three days, are small with a very low student-to-faculty ratio, and fill up very quickly.  The DHRP:
  • Offers quality, individually tailored RDH refreshers to prepare the dental hygienist for taking clinical boards, clinical practice, re-entering the dental profession, and meeting dental continuing education credit requirements.
  • Is customized to meet individual needs for students with a dental hygiene degree to seek re-licensure in most states.
  • Offers clinical practice refresher for the licensed dental hygienist.
  • Awards dental continuing education credits

Private face-to-face and On-Line Instruction is also available.

I took the Infection Control course on 2-28-18 through Professional Learning Services. I found that the instructor, Catherine Collier, RDH, made this course easy to understand and follow.

The CPR/BLS/AED and medical emergency class far exceeded our expectations. Wendy was a wonderful instructor and made it easy to follow along with the hands on aspect of the course.
