Each public health dental hygienist shall maintain data to be reported quarterly to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health's Office of Oral Health, (234 CMR 5.08(7)). Quarterly reports must be submitted by the 15th of the month following the previous quarter as follows: April 15th, July 15th, October 15th and January 15th.

For reporting purposes, a PHDH program is defined as an established entity comprised of one or more PHDH providers. If a report is completed by a PHDH program, each PHDH providing any service at the site must be listed

The reporting form is now accessible electronically. An individual report must be filled out completely. Partially completed forms may not be saved and completed at a future date.
