"The mission of Sanders Board Preparatory is to provide clear and concise instruction in the art and science of dental hygiene through unique instructional techniques tailored to meet the needs of each and every student."

—Katrina Sanders, Founder

Sanders Board Preparatory is a comprehensive lecture program designed to supplement student learning and enhance understanding of concepts, terminology and procedures commonly discussed within the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination issued by the Joint Commission. Lectures are supplemented with enthusiastic delivery, snacks, fun mnemonic devices and endless laughter. At Sanders Board Preparatory, we believe learning is best achieved in a safe, positive and respectful environment.

Sanders Board Preparatory students are well-prepared and ready to perform successfully on their examination.  Results of this preparatory course are outstanding, as every student who has taken this course has passed their examination on their first attempt. More importantly, each student walked confidently into the examination trusting in their abilities and walked away with optimism regarding their performance.  

Sanders Board Preparatory promotes lifelong learning and encourages its participants to never stop asking "Why?". The pursuit of success in the dental hygiene community requires this zest for knowledge and the application of teachable methods. Why not choose Sanders Board Preparatory to help you make those strides in your own career?

"Katrina knows everything you need to know to pass your boards."

"She is high-energy and there was never a dull moment."

"The confidence I gained in not only feeling like the material was clicking but also sticking was priceless."

"She made the lectures entertaining and fun."

"I’ve been through a long journey of being a hygiene student, I graduated, tried to take my boards and failed it.  I had a calling to take Sanders Board Prep and this opportunity has been so amazing.  Shout out to Sanders Board Prep: it was the best experience and it is the best for one-on-one contact, Katrina has been great. I feel ready to take my board!"

Note: student passed her boards 2 weeks later!

"I was uneasy after failing my boards last year, and this whole year has been a dark year for me. I felt ashamed, was in denial and didn’t know where to go or what to do after failing my boards. I walked into Sanders Board Prep and knew it was different.  I felt a huge support system with Sanders Board Prep, and now I am ready and feeling excited.  I know I’m going to rock my boards!"

Note: student passed her board 1 month later!

"Several of my second year dental hygiene students attended Sanders Board Prep and I knew the students would be board ready under the direction of Katrina Sanders. The students posted their excitement after the presentation ended. They vocalized their enthusiasm to me and the classmates that did not attend, wished that they had attended. The "notebook" that attendees received was the talk for days after they completed the course. I have complete confidence in recommending Sanders Board Prep to all students!"
