Message from the 2017-2018 IOH Chair

Betty Kabel RDH, BS - Chair, ADHA Institute for Oral Health

It is my honor to serve as Chair of the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health (IOH), the only foundation by dental hygienists for dental hygienists.

IOH is invaluable to our profession as it provides opportunities that ensure the future of quality oral health care.

The Institute supports dental hygiene professionals throughout their careers by offering community service grants, scholarships, and research grants to ADHA members.

These important programs would not be possible without you! Because you are involved -- as donors, members, advocates and volunteers -- ADHA and its foundation unite, empower and support the dental hygiene profession.

Message from the 2017 Liaison of the Year

Cynthia Baty, RDH, BS - Oklahoma 2017 Liz Chaney Liaison of the Year

Don't tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results

It is my honor and privilege to be the recipient of the 2017 ADHA Liz Chaney IOH Liaison of the Year Award!

The Institute for Oral Health (IOH) is the philanthropic arm of the ADHA and it is the only foundation by dental hygienists and for dental hygienists. IOH enables us to give back to our fellow dental hygienists. By donating our time, talent, and treasure, as IOH Liaisons, we are inspiring others to ignite their spark for bringing people together for a common cause and serving with a purpose beyond self.

My greatest joy, as an IOH Liaison, has been the reward of connecting with the nationwide network of IOH Liaisons in service to the profession!

Join me this year, in support of IOH, and fan the flame of service in your hearts, your Constituents, and your Components, to give generously for A Great Cause!
