October is National Dental Hygiene Month 2019

There’s so much to celebrate about being a dental hygienist, and we are proud to have the opportunity each year to honor you and share the important role you play in improving the health of your patients.

For the first time ever, we’re proud to be featured in a national campaign with Walgreens and LISTERINE® to promote good oral health and the amazing work of dental hygienists.

ADHA is proud to be a part of this national campaign with displays going up all month long in 5,433 Walgreens locations across the country as well as on Pandora radio, in print, and online. Designed to reinforce the important care tips you provide your patients, this campaign will offer some cool opportunities for you.
