1. How many Dental Hygiene Quarterly issues do I receive?

All DHQ subscriptions are for a one-year period beginning from the date that your new subscription or renewal is received. There are four issues per one-year subscription. They are available online through the CDHA for the annual subscription or rdhu for individually purchased editions. Issues are mailed or delivered quarterly, usually in March, June, September and December.

How does the DHQ work in my home?

Depending on your preference, you may receive a DVD or information on how to access it online on your computer. The DVD may be viewed in a portable unit, connected to your television set or played on a DVD-equipped personal computer. Use it exactly as you would for loading and watching a movie: use the menu buttons, such as play, scene selection, stop.

3. What kinds of programming or topics are provided on the DVDs?

Each issue of the DHQ contains approximately 3 presentations. Sessions are clinical or practical application. A hands-on demonstrations are offered with many of the sessions. Each session provides information on the latest advances in materials, techniques and technology essential in your daily dental hygiene practice.

Clinical topics include periodontics, digital imaging, laser cleaning, preventative care, infection control and others. Practice management related topics include ergonomics, nutrition, wellness, communication and others.

4. How does the interactive Q & A component work?

Each presentation or segment is followed by a number of multiple choice questions which must be completed before proceeding. A correct answer automatically permits you to proceed to the next question. An incorrect answer returns you to the one-to-two minute segment of the program where that information was provided. After a quick review of the information, you are returned to the next question or to the main menu.

5. May I receive CE credits by subscribing to the DVD Quarterly?

Each of the four DVD Quarterly issues published per year consists of 3 - 4 presentations or segments totaling three hours of material. Therefore, subscribers receive 12 hours of Continuing Education annually.

Following your viewing of each DVD Quarterly issue, you may complete a multiple choice test on line through the DHQ website or on the postcard provided. A Certificate of Participation will be provided to you either on line instantly or through the mail in 10 to 15 days after receipt at the Quarterly office. This Certificate may then be submitted to your provincial regulatory body for credit in the same manner as certificates from other forms of CE.

6. May I share the Dental Hygiene Quarterly with my colleagues?

The Dental Hygiene Quarterly is intended for one subscriber only and is eligible to receive Certificates of Participation in this continuing education publication.

We do offer special pricing for offices who would like to purchase one subscription but would like more than one certificate. Please email info@dentalhygienequarterly.ca for more information.

7. Are there handouts with each edition available?

Yes, as of Summer 2017, handouts are available for all subscriptions so you may print the handout and have the slides available for taking notes. This will help provide a deeper sense of learning.
