The Idaho Dental Hygienists' Association (IDHA) is the professional organization representing dental hygienists in the state of Idaho. The IDHA is a constituent of the American Dental Hygienists' Association. The mission of IDHA is to improve total health by increasing the public's awareness of and access to quality oral health care, promote the highest standards of dental hygiene education, licensure, and practice and represent and promote the interests of dental hygiene.



Hello Idaho Hygienists,

Thank you to those who have been officers and members of IDHA! It takes many hands and collective minds to make an association successful. In a few weeks, new officers will be elected to the IDHA Board. I am recruiting Board members who believe in the IDHA mission and are willing to work to achieve our goals. All offices are open for nomination. Please see the attached mission statement. Contact me for job descriptions.

IDHA is entering a challenging and very exciting time as an Association. Dental hygienists in Idaho have voiced concerns and opinions about advancing our profession, changing our practice act and increasing job opportunities. Based on the recent survey results my first goal is to address communication with all dental hygienists and other health care professionals including, but not limited to: Idaho Oral Health Association, Idaho Rural Health Association, Idaho Public Health Association, the Idaho State Board of Dentistry and the Idaho State Dental Association. Other goals include revitalizing our state and local associations in addition to establishing our new charter required by ADHA. Many of you have noticed some local components are striving to remain vital and active. IDHA needs you to participate in keeping our association moving forward.

It does not matter if you are a newcomer to the Association or a seasoned member; you all have strengths that will benefit IDHA! There are many opportunities to serve by being on a committee or task force. It is time to get involved as little or as much as you desire. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone if you wish to discuss an officer position or help in some other way. I look forward to celebrating you, Idaho Dental Hygienists, at IDHA's Annual Session October 9-10th.
