Student Membership

Ready to join? If you are currently enrolled in an accredited dental hygiene program or pursuing a complementary baccalaureate or graduate degree from an accredited college or institution of higher education, you are qualified to apply for student membership. Join today to start enjoying the benefits of membership.

Once you obtain your license, it’s time to change your student membership to a professional membership. Simply log in to our members-only site. All you need to do is add your dental hygiene license number and start enjoying professional membership benefits. It is FREE to upgrade your membership and your renewal date remains the same.

Note: We are moving away from paper applications for student membership. This will ensure we have the best data possible, and we’ll save a few trees! Students must register and renew their memberships online by visiting our members-only website,, or by clicking the “join now” button above.

Dental hygiene programs that register a group must first have students register online, and create a member ID number. Please include that number on the roster form when submitting payment(s) to be processed for membership.
