Description

On September 18, 2013, the American Dental Hygienists' Association (ADHA) hosted a symposium, titled Transforming Dental Hygiene Education: Proud Past, Unlimited Future. The symposium was the result of the collaboration between ADHA, the Santa Fe Group, and ADHA's Institute for Oral Health. ADHA's mission is to advance the art and science of dental hygiene by working to ensure access to quality oral health care; increase awareness of the benefits of prevention; and promote the highest standards of dental hygiene education, licensure, practice, and research while representing and promoting the interests of dental hygienists. The Santa Fe Group is an organization of dental thought leaders dedicated to improving the Nation's oral and general health. The ADHA Institute for Oral Health seeks to advance the profession of dental hygiene through scholarships, research, and service in collaboration with ADHA. Denise Bowers, president of ADHA, and Linda Niessen, president of the Santa Fe Group, welcomed over 100 attendees, representing dental and other health care professionals, educators, insurers, researchers, and officials from both the public and private sectors. The goal of the three-day meeting was to discuss how the profession would need to transform its educational process to achieve expanded roles and new opportunities for dental hygienists in the future. Panelists provided participants with historical overviews of the dental hygiene profession and discussed ways in which dental hygiene could learn from other health care professions that have transformed their curricula. A strategic planning workshop was held at the end of the meeting that provided attendees an opportunity to discuss strategies for that future.show more
