Dear Members,

Welcome to all the new and returning members for 2016-2017. It seems that 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. 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.

  • The cost of our Continuing Education is designed to be highly competitive within the marketplace
  • Our annual membership provides excellent value at ~ $13.30 per 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 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, Sunstar & Colgate.

Yearly Donations

  • Mary's Place - $250.00
  • Jamesville Breakfast Club - $250.00
  • Operation Smile Canada - $250.00 (Cleft Palate Repair)

As always the Executive committee works hard to provide a variety of topics that can be used to support your portfolio requirements.

If anyone is interested in holding a position on the executive committee please contact us, we would like a couple of volunteers for helping out at each meeting.

Your H&DDHS Executive
