You've spent the last several years putting all of your time and energy into entering an allied health profession. Nearing the end of your formal education means that all of this hard work will soon pay off! But first, there are board exams. These exams are never easy, but with our interactive live competitions (virtual competitions forthcoming), you'll enjoy hitting the books!
We work with an elite group of dental companies to help bring you this gamification of dental hygiene knowledge at little to no cost.
Teams compete in 5 rounds of nearly 400 questions ranging anywhere from core sciences, dental hygiene process of care to the ethics and research within profession. There is nothing better than having an auditorium full of students, faculty and community RDHs helping to shape tomorrow's professionals.

We are still finalizing locations -
More information is available on each state's page. If you are interested in hosting a competition in your area, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Contact the Dental Hygiene Programs in your area to gauge interest. We can do games with 3-9 schools participating.
Having a centrally located program that is willing to co-host the event is essential to keeping the cost down. Using a large lecture hall or banquet room is usually best.
We are happy to make arrangements with the schools that wish to participate and those who are willing to host. If you get to this stage, I will take over the coordination. email@example.com
Finding sponsorship is the most important part of a FREE competition. We do our best to make this painless, but we welcome any recommendation you may have to work with companies that you have a good relationship with.
With the site, the teams and the sponsors in place we are ready to spread the word using social media like YouTube, Facebook and Instagram and even paper fliers to promote the event.
How are questions chosen? We use multiple sources to form our questions, taking special care to ensure that we are representing the published categories of the NBDHE
How are the staff qualified? We at It's Hygienic have a wide range of teaching experience in both clinical and didactic dental hygiene.
How is this different from a formal board review? This is a fun, lively, single day event that has students engaged in a gamification of all things dental hygiene.
