A Message From Our President

Fellow Hygienists,

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.

I look forward to working with you this year!
