In DH school, writing a paper about the licensing process would love opinion/input from someone who’s been through it.

I’m in DH school at Concorde in Memphis, Tn. I’m writing a research paper on the dental hygiene licensing process and I have all the facts. I would just like some input from someone who’s been through the process. Some of the questions I have are: How did you find the licensing experience(stressful, easy, difficult)? Did you feel prepared by the education you received? In retrospect is there anything you would have done differently to improve your outcome or make it easier?

I went to school and am licensed in Oregon. I attended the Oregon Institute of Technology and felt completely prepared by the education I received. Not only was I prepared for the field, but we had multiple mock boards (that were actually more stressful than the real thing!) and our instructors thoroughly guided us through the licensing process. We even had someone from the Oregon Board of Dentistry speak to our class and take any questions regarding licensing. I took all of the electives that were needed during hygiene school beforehand, which gave me the extra time I needed to study for boards as well. I don’t want to sugar-coat the process and say I wasn’t nervous for each test though!

I also went to Oregon Institute of Technology. I along with Kara felt prepared for the “real world”. I attended the campus in Klamath Falls Oregon and our instructors put together several mock boards during the year. They also went over the paper process very well for the clinical boards. Boards, written and clinical, was very stressful but I felt prepared. We learned a lot of information over the coarse of the program but you will continue to learn in the work place. Getting licensed was straight forward and not too stressful.
