"Dental Hygienists - Promoting Quality Healthcare for Life"
The purpose of NCDHA is to represent the profession of dental hygiene while encouraging professional development based upon the highest educational standards.
Welcome to our website for NCDHA members and ADHA members. It will give members a way to become more up-to-date with all the latest news, along with becoming more involved. We encourage every dental hygienist to become an active member. If you aren't an ADHA member yet, now is the time to join!
Once you are an ADHA member, make sure you join this site too.

2013 Sunstar/RDH Award of Distinction
"Unselfish," "extraordinary," "devoted," and "changing lives" are

another's life and make the quality of that life better, it has been
defined as compassion. Each 2013 recipient demonstrates compassion,
whether it be with children, senior citizens, persons with disabilities,
home-bound clients, or recovering addicts; a dental hygienist provides
care with her heart.

A Message From Our President
I am honored and privileged to serve as President of the
North Carolina Dental Hygiene Association.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of dental hygiene. As I reflect on our past with the changes and
challenges our profession has encountered, I am honored to be dental hygienist.
As dental hygienists we need to continue to work as one to
promote our profession and the oral health of North Carolinians. I encourage you to look towards the future
and embrace the advancement of dental hygiene.
As ADHA has themed the 100th Anniversary “Proud Past,
Unlimited Future,” I believe our opportunities are limitless as we promote our
profession and serve the public.
