Welcome to an amazing profession!  You are the future of dental hygiene.  TDHA and ADHA work diligently to promote, preserve, and protect our educational requirements and clinical skill set. Upon graduation, you will become a member of a highly skilled community of oral health specialists.

We strongly encourage you to participate in the student tracks during TDHA Annual Session as well as ADHA Annual Session.  It is a great opportunity to learn, network and grow both personally and professionally.

Be active in your local and state component as well. Progressing our profession forward requires involvement from all hygienists throughout the state. Reach out to officers in your local districts to attend meetings (free to ADHA members and earn CE credits), learn about legislative updates, build life long friendships, and network for job opportunities.

The possibilities are endless!

Again, welcome to the profession of dental hygiene.
