my wife went to college in Ohio and finished the dental assistant program including xray.

She worked there for a dentist for a year.

Now she's here(Permanent Resident) trying to find how can she get her HARP certification (in order to get hired here).

Has anyone been able to do this or know of a way?

What is the fastest easiest?

She has a copy of her courses and transcripts.

-looked online at different colleges, looked at the HARP website, asked dentists here, called the college in Windsor where we are and nobody has any other answer other than "take the whole 1 year program again" which is expensive and takes 1 year

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You mentioned that you looked online and at the HARP website.

We are not sure if you have already looked at the Ontario Dental Assistants Association (ODAA) website in the Internationally Educated Dental Assistants section.

You may also want to contact the Ontario Dental Assistants Association (ODAA) directly to see if they can answer your questions and provide you with some information regarding this process.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
