ACCESS TO INFORMATION

Members receive the most up-to-date information relative to the profession in the Journal of Dental Hygiene, ADHA’s official on-line, peer-reviewed scientific journal publication that contains information on clinical practice, research, education and public health. In addition, members receive ADHA’s magazine, Access, and MDHA’s quarterly newsletter, The Bulletin.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME IF I JOIN?

Nothing is expected of an individual member, although the greatest benefit from membership will come from your participation at meetings; and contributing ideas and skills to the progression of your profession via this professional association.

 

I ONLY WANT TO BE A MEMBER OF RIDHA AND MY LOCAL COMPONENT, IS THAT POSSIBLE?

No, I am sorry, but membership to the state constituent and the local component come directly from membership in our national association, the American Dental Hygienists' Association.
