The judges were impressed and their comments showed how much they enjoyed hearing the students, and seeing the effort they put into their posters.

We want to keep you abreast as to what is happening within our Association with an update from our virtual Board of Trustees Meeting on Saturday 7/25
The ADHA Institute for Oral Health (IOH) National Fundraiser - Scholarships for RDHs by RDHs (IOH), the only national foundation for the important work of dental hygienists, is having its national fundraiser through June 30! All dollars raised will directly support our scholarship, research and community service grant programs.
Last month PDHA, the Community Water Fluoridation Task Force, and Pennsylvania Oral Health Coalition (PCOH) sent a letter to the Department of Environmental Protection expressing concerns about a proposal that would end water fluoridation in Mechanicsburg, PA Upper Allen Township. We shared our concerns about the negative impact that such a proposal would have on the health of the children and adults in that area. Our letter resulted in the permit being denied until a public meeting could be held. This meeting may be held as early as June. The group is now working to secure signatures & comments from within the community of Mechanicsburg’s Upper Allen Township currently being served by Suez Water. Due to social distancing, Merrilynn Marsh from PCOH has put together an electronic petition. Our focus is to inform and gain the participation of hygienists residing or working within Upper Allen Township. Your support and participation would be most valuable. Our group is trying to engage the Mechanicsburg community in the fight to retain fluoride in the water. There is NO NEED TO DONATE. We are seeking signatures and comments only.
Hello PDHA Members! I hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. We want to share all that is going on within our Association and updates from our most recent online Board of Trustees Meeting held via Zoom on Saturday 7/25/2020.
PDHA has been working hard to keep updated on the most current information and communicating with organizations, government agencies, individuals and hygienists across the state to advocate for the safe- ty and fair labor treatment of hygienists in Pennsylvania. We have been able to post resources for hygienists on our Web page and Social Media Platforms please keep an eye out for the information as it becomes available.
There are still a limited supply of these pins available for $10.00 with the money going to the Penn Hy-PAC committee. If you are interested in purchasing one, please contact: Laura DeHennis firstname.lastname@example.org We appreciate your support for our lobbyist, Morgan Plant and her efforts on behalf of all RDH in PA-thank you!
