ATTENTION LICENSEES RENEWING THE RDH LICENSE FOR JULY 2022:
There is a slight delay in updating the BreEZe computer system to accommodate the new RDH License Renewal Fees and maintenance is in progress to enable the July 2022 renewal process for licensees to begin sometime next week. This still leaves plenty of time to complete your license renewal prior to its expiration at the end of July. Please see the notice below for the fee increases.

If you have any questions, please contact us. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Dental Hygiene Board of California
