Associate Professor Nancy Foster is Selected as a National Dental Hygiene Board Test Constructor

Nancy Foster

Nancy Foster, Associate Professor of Dental Health was recently selected by the Joint Commission on National Dental Examinations (JCNDE) to be a Test Constructor for the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination (NBDHE).

The NBDHE is the national board examination for all dental hygienists seeking licensure in the U.S. The purpose of the NBDHE is to assist state dental boards in determining qualifications of dental hygienists who seek licensure to practice. The exam assesses the ability to understand critical information from introductory biomedical, dental and dental hygiene sciences.

Associate Professor Foster is looking forward to this unique opportunity and hopes this experience will be of direct benefit to our UMA dental students.
