Image courtesy of Digitalart - FreeDigitalPhotos.net In 1998 the Calif ornia Legislature created a new license category of Oral Health Prof essionals, the Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice, abbreviated as RDHAP. It allows a previously licensed dental hygienist, who has completed the additional course studies of 150 hours and passed an additional state licensing test, to practice dental hygiene without the direct supervision of a dentist.
  • 6. T he purpose of this new license category was to develop a mid-level practitioner, to deliver dental hygiene care and preventive services to special populations in alternative settings where people live or f requent, rather than the traditional dental of f ice or clinic. T he RDHAP can be a critical bridge between dental hygiene services, advanced therapies f or gum disease and strategies to prevent dental disease. T hey can also develop oral health plans and provide staf f with proper training. Registered Dental Hygienist's also have specialized training that allows them to have their own independent business. T hey are able to provide preventative dental hygiene services to populations that otherwise would not be ale to access dental care. Populations that f all into this category are the homebound, disabled and those living at economic poverty levels. Have a question or comment? We would love to hear f rom you!
