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.

For multiple-day exams, scheduling requests must be received by the registration deadline through our Contact us platform. Scheduling requests are not guaranteed.

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. If a spot becomes available, you will receive a message from our Candidate Services Team.

All exams and waiting list requests are managed by the CDCA, host schools have no participation in the registration process and should not be contacted about registration and scheduling. Contacting the host school may result in you being moved to the bottom of the waiting list. A waitlist is not available for locations that are closed to outside students.

Important: Candidates are responsible for following COVID-19 guidelines imposed by local and federal governments from the State (s) they are scheduled to test. Exam dates are subject to change due to local conditions.

Candidates are encouraged to visit our COVID-19 page for additional information.

You may search this calendar by school, city, or state abbreviation in the search box or navigate using "Next" and "Previous".

NOTE: A closed site is available to current graduates only. Please do not contact the school directly as they cannot make exceptions and do not have access to CDCA's registration system.
