ADHA Industry Relations Council (IRC) is an exclusive corporate membership for key industry partners that support ADHA in a very strategic and visible way. This mutually beneficial partnership supports the organizational vision, goals and missions of both ADHA and its industry partner.


The ADHA Industry Relations Council pursues the following goals:

  • Create dialogue between ADHA leadership, industry partners, and the dental hygienist community.
  • Increase visibility of IRC members with ADHA membership.
  • Provide IRC members with an understanding of critical trends, market intelligence and important issues facing dental hygienists, their patients, and underserved populations.

Each year, ADHA will recognize corporate partners that have championed the pillars of the ADHA strategic plan. Through abundant financial support, each company has empowered and elevated ADHA members by helping to fund relevant education, practice resources and tools, and opportunities for collaboration and thought leadership. Through their contributions, these companies are paving the way for dental hygienists to practice at the top of their scope. We proudly recognize the organizations that generously support ADHA initiatives that:

  • Implement the vision for the profession
  • Advance the identity of the dental hygienist
  • Exemplify organizational excellence

Membership in the IRC is for one (1) calendar year. It is a nonvoting partner membership with benefits extended to a single corporate-designated representative. The IRC program features two participation levels to allow companies of all sizes to enhance their engagement with the ADHA membership. Partnership is available at a Premier ($15,000) or an Associate ($5,000) level.
