REINVIGORATE YOUR RDH CAREER
The Dental Hygiene Refresher Program (DHRP) is a one-of-a-kind clinical skills and knowledge update that has run twice a year since 1988 and typically sells out quickly. It is conducted over three days and includes self study to prepare for the live program. Class size is limited for maximum guidance and instruction. The instructors are experienced clinicians and professional educators. The style of teaching is humanistic.
- The DHRP offers quality, individually tailored RDH refreshers to prepare the dental hygienist for re-taking clinical boards, preparation for clinical practice, re-entering the dental hygiene profession, and meeting dental continuing education credit requirements.
- It is customized to meet individual needs for graduates with a dental hygiene degree pursuing a new license or reinstatement of an existing license in certain states.
- It offers mannequin and clinical practice coaching.
- It prepares foreign trained dentists for dental hygiene clinical boards and scope of practice.
- CEUs (credits) are issued upon successful course completion.
Private face-to-face and On-Line Instruction is also available.

"I graduated from UNE in 2004 then in 2005 got my BS and then I came to you! You were the only one that could give me confidence! I thought I was AWFUL due to what was said to me at southwestern college in National city California. .... you helped me first with the “dummy.” I said I wasn’t ready but you pushed me a bit and said I could do it! Then you let me go straight to cleaning your teeth! I was so intimidated but YOU got me through it! And 2 other teachers watched! All of you said I had a great technique! You gave me back my confidence and I will never forget that and your kindness. Thank you so much!"
I traveled 1,190 miles to attend this PLS refresher class and I would absolutely do it again! It made me feel fresh, excited and full of knowledge! Ready to continue my dental hygiene career with confidence. Thank you!
"You were amazing from the first time we spoke! I am appreciative of all your knowledge and guidance. I was reinstated today in CT! Couldn’t have done it without the PLS team!"
"Preparation for this DH Refresher Course went smoothly for me, considering how long I have been away from practice. It was very organized and extremely detailed. All of the instructors’ depth of knowledge along with evidence based information and teaching style was awesome. The hands on portion was exactly what was needed to increase my confidence and my skills."
"Thank you so much for the amazing and supportive education and guidance."
I took the PLS course this past May. It was truly an answer to prayer. I worked as a dental hygienist full time for three years and then two more part time over twenty-five years ago. At that point I entered into full time mommy-hood and ran several businesses from home. I had no desire or expectation to re-enter the profession. Then life took an unplanned turn. I tried to find help to restart and for over a year came up empty handed! Finally I found PLS. Joyce was the first to speak. The course included a nice mix of the latest products, current information and experiences with current dental software. We also had the opportunity to have our technique critiqued. This was an extremely positive experience. Joyce and her team have a real gift, the ability to identify an area that needs modification and offer advice on how to improve, while simultaneously encouraging the recipient. This course was positive, helpful, uplifting, informative, encouraging and, in the midst of my very challenging financial situation, worth every penny. The teams words of affirmation were with me as I proceeded into the board and after. Joyce and her team are awesome and, professionally, this was one of the best experience of my life. "I was only required to take the clinical exam. Without using an ultrasonic device I still scored a 94. Pretty impressive for going about 25 years without practicing. PLS helped me prepare in a manner unavailable anywhere else."
"Hello Joyce, Just to let you know I passed the NERB, both the written and clinic portions. Thank you again for the great refresher course you created!"
