Hi, I have a question regarding CA license by credential and I appreciate if anyone can help me

CA dental board website stated that people with active license for 5 years and minimum of 5000 hours working experience are eligible to apply . if applicant already completed maximum of two years residency, he/she can use that as credit towards the 5 years requirement

I graduated in 2016 and Im almost working for 5 years .However, I have 1 year GPR residency credit too
my question is if they want to add this 1 year residency credit towards the 5 years requirement, how many hours should I have for the remaining 4 years to be eligible
