Dental Hygiene Exam Calendar

In order to register for any portion of the Dental Hygiene Exam candidates will need to create an online profile. A complete CDCA profile includes a mandatory photo, proof of graduation, and payment of the appropriate fees.

To avoid late registration fees, the application process must be completed before the registration deadline to allow time for verification. All requests to withdraw from the examination must be received by the application deadline to receive a refund. Candidates requesting to withdraw after the application deadline will be charged a $100 admin fee and have their paid exam fees applied to a future examination.

2020 Adjusted Dental Hygiene Exam Schedule

The following is a list of examination sites and dates, some affected by mandated COVID-19 closures. CDCA is working diligently to reschedule all examinations impacted by this unprecedented event.

Dates are subject to change due to local conditions. You may search by school, city, or state abbreviation in the search box or navigate using "Next" and "Previous".

If "Wait List" is noted in the Status column, you can request to be put on the waiting list by clicking the link. Be sure to include the name of the school you request in your message. Please note: Once you send a message your name will be added to the waiting list, you do not need to email to confirm or follow-up.
