Our Mission: Unite, Support and Empower
Georgia Dental Hygienists
GDHA is YOUR resource for the most up to date information impacting dental hygienists in Georgia. With the passage of HB 154, supervision rules for dental hygienists and the scope of practice for dental assistants has changed.
The Georgia Dental Hygienists’ Association (GDHA) proudly represent
over 7,000 dental hygienists in Georgia. GDHA is part of the American Dental
Hygienists Association tripartite structure and all GDHA members are ADHA
members as well as members of their local components.
Members receive up-to-date information about emerging technologies,
insights into clinical practice, opportunities to establish and network with
one’s peers and timely alerts on legislative developments affecting the
practice of dental hygiene in Georgia.
DID YOU KNOW that dental hygienists can assess the signs and
symptoms of potentially life-threatening conditions such as oral
cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, eating disorders, HIV and heart disease?
Dental hygienists are college educated, board licensed oral health
professionals that support the dentist in the early detection of serious
problems. See your dentist and dental hygienist today for comprehensive
centered dental care.
