The American Dental Hygienist Association (ADHA) and the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors (ASTDD) are currently seeking to fulfill the National Center on Early Childhood Health and Wellness (NCECHW) Dental Hygienist Liaison (DHL) position in the state of Tennessee.

NCECHW advances best practices for linking early childhood education (ECE) providers, health professionals, and families to promote health, including oral health and wellness for pregnant women and children enrolled in Head Start and children enrolled in child care programs. ADHA has partnered with ASTDD since 2011 to recruit and promote the work of a DHL in each state and the District of Columbia.

DHLs have an integral role in the success of NCECHW’s oral health activities at the state and local level. The DHL role is voluntary and their primary functions include: 1) serving as a communication link between NCECHW and Head Start and child care agencies on issues related to oral health; 2) collaborating with state organizations, including the state oral health program, Head Start collaboration office, and child care agencies; and 3) promoting evidence-informed oral health information and resources to ECE providers and agencies.

DHLs are recognized as early childhood oral health leaders and advocates in their state. An annual stipend of $750 will be available to support the work of the DHL in each state. Experience working in public health, early childhood programs, and/or advocacy is preferred. DHLs must be current members of ADHA.

If you are interested in serving as the DHL in Tennessee or would like more information, please email Summer Hofford atsummerh@adha.net or Michelle Landrum at michellelandrum@yahoo.com.
