The distance learning NEBDN accredited Oral Health Education course is suited to registered dental nurses who desire to become qualified oral health educators. The course is an excellent stepping stone towards retraining to become a hygienist. The course takes an average of 9 months to complete and is comprised of online learning modules, a record of competence (which must be completed in clinic under supervision), and an online exam (held in September  2021).
