Help us deliver the message of Oral Health
Our web site was created in the spirit of sharing healthcare news and licensure information with Dental Hygiene professionals in the State of Georgia, and to help you stay posted on current events and volunteer opportunities in our local communities. We invite you to Contact Us with questions regarding Membership or becoming a GDHA Sponsor.
As an association of professional dental hygienists, using emerging technologies, research and evidence based practices, we empower each individual member in a continuum of self directed, lifelong education for the enhancement of patient care and the advancement of the dental hygiene profession.
"Time to Catch Up" is a campaign of the Georgia Dental Hygienists' Association to raise awareness of the oral health needs in Georgia and the provision of preventative care offered by registered dental hygienists. The question most often asked when seeking legislative change is what do you want? Our answer is simply to "catch up" with how hygienists practice dental hygiene across the nation.
This campaign is focused on making change that would align our laws and rules with the normal supervision guidelines and scope of practice observed in a vast majority of states.
