Your action is critical to protecting the public, the profession we treasure and the scope of practice we must have to enable the public’s direct access to our care.
If we remain silent, others will speak for Dental Hygiene. Please don’t let that happen to our profession.
A round of applause to the audience of student dental hygienists, private
practitioners, educators, public health dental hygienists and our generous
corporate sponsor, Sunstar Americas, who help to create a delicious and
enriching evening of events at PDHA’s September 9th.
The 1.5 hours of continuing education delivered by the team of public health experts enhanced our protocol for engaging the Age One Dental Visit in Clinical Practice. The informative handouts, oral presentations and live patient demonstration profoundly impacted our standards of practice.
