Important Message to Consumers and Licensees Regarding License Lookup!
NOTICE - Licensees with an Expiration Date of November 30, 2013: The Dental Hygiene Committee of California (DHCC) has been notified of a programming error that has resulted in individuals with an expiration date of November 30, 2013 being displayed on the License Lookup Feature as expired/delinquent. The DHCC is actively working with the Department of Consumer Affairs to have this matter corrected as soon as possible. Once the error has been rectified, the DHCC will post a follow-up notice on its website. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this error has caused.
Welcome to the new Dental Hygiene Committee of California (DHCC) web site. We are proud and excited that DHCC is the first of its kind in the United States.
The DHCC will consist of nine-members appointed by the Governor; four public members, one practicing dentist and four dental hygienists. The responsibilities of DHCC include issuing, reviewing, and revoking licenses as well as developing and administering examinations. Additional functions include adopting regulations, determining fees and continuing education requirements for all hygiene licensure categories.
At this time, dental hygiene licenses and permits cannot be renewed online.
