The Illinois Dental Hygienists’ Association, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Illinois State Dental Society have all made their recommendations regarding the coursework needed to obtain a Public Health Dental Hygienist Certificate.
All Recommendations have been given to The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations, who are in the process of writing the specific coursework.
Please keep in mind that the legislative process is a long and sometimes a tedious one. Updates will continue to be posted as soon as they are made available to us.
