Dear Members,

Welcome to all the new and returning members for 2015-2016. It seems we as dental hygienists are inundated with information from all different sources. H&DDHS members are part of a society of like minded individuals who meet once a month for organized lectures. Before and after the presentation you are able to socialize and network with other people in the field. This is an excellent opportunity to get to know other members of the dental community a little better. Our members attend the meetings to stay up to date on the latest ideas, technologies, and practices in dental and oral health. This knowledge as Oral Health Care Professionals allows us to treat our patients to the best of our ability as well as aids in formulating goals for our professional portfolio.

  • Our Continuing Education costing is designed to be highly competitive within the marketplace
  • Our annual membership provides excellent value at ~ $13.30@ meeting.
  • We are conveniently located in Hamilton
  • Refreshments served
  • No parking fee


A Partnership with YWCA's Women's Transitional Program

The HDDHS has partnered with YWCA's Women's Transitional Program. Carol Wells, our President delivered 100 dental hygiene kits to the YWCA'S women shelter. Each kit included a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss & mouthwash. This was made possible from the contributions from our members.

National Dental Hygienists Week 2015

Carol Wells has been to 5 different YWCA day care & after school programs to teach 3 - 10 year olds the importance of good oral health care. All of the children were excited to see what "sugar bugs" looked like on the microscope. Of course they all love their new toothbrushes - complements of our members and SunStar Butler.
