Through a generous sponsorship, Philips is partnering with ADHA to bring you the 2023 Philips|ADHA CE Seminars! These in-person programs are planned for multiple locations around the U.S.  Look forward to engaging speakers, interaction, reconnection and feeling empowered to shift the dental hygiene culture through your DH community.


Dental hygienists have a passion for caring for patients.  But to be able to serve others, it is imperative to pay attention to our own health and wellness, too. Join us for an amazing day of in-person fun to recharge, reconnect and refocus on our commitment to our patients and ourselves, our perspectives, communications skills and more. Programs at various locations emphasize different aspects – please review the agendas.

Programs include:

  • Renowned world-class speakers
  • Content & presentations that lighten your perspective
  • 5.0 CE credits upon program completion
  • Complimentary breakfast and lunch
  • Connecting & networking with other hygienists from across the state

It is time for dental hygiene to occupy its rightful place on the healthcare stage and for today’s dental hygienist to feel good about what they do. Join us for a day of fun to recharge and consider our commitment to our patients. Learn a better way to communicate and deliver care that improves oral and overall health and how to make subtle changes in your existing recall routine and change the tone of your dental day.

You’ll also uncover effective strategies to navigate and thrive in the midst of life’s challenges. Within the family of dentistry, most of us have faced, or will face significant setbacks and difficulties. Learn how to be able to wear your professional hat while simultaneously grieving or struggling with anxiety amidst unexpected adversities.
