New at SCDHA

On February 17th 2018 SCDHA hosted a mid-winter scientific session.  Courses were offered on ergonomics, OTC products, instrument sharpening, and mastering the piezoelectric.  A delicious Italian buffet was offered and during lunch a local lawyer spoke to us about labor and law.  We had lots of sponsors giving out samples and telling us about their products, a chiropractor giving free adjustments, there was a marketplace to buy jewelry, and a saddle chair was raffled off to one lucky winner. 

Students from Midlands Technical College along with dedicated hygienists at the State House for Lobby Day 2018.  Every year SCDHA goes to the State House to hand out toothbrushes, introduce themselves to lawmakers, and discuss issues important to dental hygienists in SC.

On November 4th this group of dedicated officers and members of SCDHA came together for the yearly strategic planning meeting.  Much fun was had as they planned how to better support our members of ADHA, bring in new members, and continue to push the profession of dental hygiene forward in our South Carolina.


This weekend the South Carolina Dental Hygienists’ Association celebrated this beautiful woman, Jo Ann Rice, for her outstanding dedication to her profession. The handmade sweetgrass necklace she is wearing mirrors her many years of unselfish devotion to our Association. Jo Ann is a true role model to her peers.
