Information for international applicants:
Rural Canada has a shortage of dental hygienists. Average wages are 37-45 CAD / hr.
The successful candidate would have to obtain a BC dental hygiene license. http://www.cdhbc.com/Registration-Renewal/Clinical-Examination.aspx
The licensing process takes up to one year. The first step is to request that the degrees are equivalent to Canadian school at the National Dental Hygiene Certification Board. https://www.ndhcb.ca/how-to-become-certified . The NDHCB has approved the education equivalency of other hygienists applying from South Africa, so this will likely not be a barrier. Once this is done, the candidate writes the NDHCE board exam.
Then, to be licensed in BC, the clinical exam must be done: http://www.cdhbc.com/Registration-Renewal/Clinical-Examination.aspx . This exam runs once a year in November.
When the licensure is complete we will assist with obtaining a 2 year work permit that can be renewed.
Thought the process takes time and can cost approximately $15,000 with flights, the benefits of high wages and working in an area with high demand will make it worthwhile.
