Dental Hygienists

Dental Hygienists

Registered Dental Hygienists play a pivotal role in our health care system and contribute greatly to the overall health and well-being of our citizens.  The Newfoundland and Labrador College of Dental Hygiene (NLCDH) recognizes and values the many roles of the Registered Dental Hygienist and encourages you to explore our website and discover what Dental Hygiene in NL has to offer.


Dental Hygienists interested in registration in Newfoundland and Labrador are advised to visit the Newfoundland and Labrador Council for Health Professionals (NLCHP) for detailed information about entry to practice.  The NLCHP is the regulatory body for dental hygienists in Newfoundland and Labrador and in conjunction with the NLCDH, is responsible for regulating the practice of Dental Hygiene under provincial legislation.
