If you pass both the written and clinical examinations of the New Zealand Dental Hygiene Registration Examination (NZDHREX), you will be eligible to apply for registration.
You can apply for registration using our online services. Start your application by working through the online assessment tool to direct you to the correct form for your application.
The following documents must be valid at the time of applying for registration:
