Are you in favor of a mid level dental provider?

IDHA | Better Together

The Idaho Dental Hygienists Association will be having its 45th annual session October 3rd and 4th. The theme is “Better Together.”

I really think that with the direction of dentistry and dental hygiene, IDHA couldn’t have made a better choice for the theme. The quote on the program—“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”— is from Helen Keller. Any dental office, business or professional association would run more effectively if everyone worked together.

We are very lucky to have the nationally recognized speaking group “Earth, Wind and Fire” come to Boise for our meeting. The group consists of Shirley Gutkowski, RDH, BSDH; Debra Grant, RDH; and Beth Thompson, RDH. Their topic will be Better Together: Tomorrow’s Dentistry Today. I have personally come to know each one of these ladies at different conferences I have attended, so believe me when I say we are really in for a treat.

Also presenting will be:
Dr. Ester Wilkins, RDH, DMD - Rethinking Dental Caries
Jane Weiner, RDH - Documentation: Did I Get it All?

There will also be table clinics presented by dental hygiene students.

Of course, no annual session is complete without a social event. A Gala is planned for Friday evening with dinner, a live auction, and music and dancing. There will be a total of 13.5 CEU’s and a lot of fun. Visit for registration and more information. I hope to see you all there!

Welcome to my life,
