AGM and Annual Conference

AGM and Annual Conference

Important Update
re: June 2nd CDHNS 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) &
Making Connections Continuing Competency (CC) Event!

It is with mixed feelings that we advise our members that our 2018 AGM & Making Connections CC Event is now full. On one hand, the interest shown assures us that we are on the right track with the topics selected, but on the other hand, we know that there are members who are disappointed because they would like to have attended but could not.    

If you are not able to attend the event on June 2, 2018, we invite and encourage you to view the live stream of Deanna Williams' address at the AGM. The link to that session will be distributed to all CDHNS members closer to the event date.  

The upcoming CDHNS AGM & Making Connections CC Event will take place on Saturday June 2nd, 2018 at the Dalhousie University, Marion McCain Arts & Social Sciences Building (6135 University Ave) in Halifax, NS.

AGM (CDHNS members only): 8:30am-9:45am
CC Event: 10:00am-4:00pm

CDHNS is thrilled to announce a great lineup of speakers and topics. Attend the Making Connections event and learn about developing as a health professional, connecting with others in your local communities, and serving others around the world.

Dental Hygienists are Superheroes


Let your dental hygienist superhero work with you to improve your oral health and overall health. 

National Dental Hygienists Week™ (NDHW™) takes place April 7‒13, 2018 as part of Oral Health Month in Canada. This week emphasizes “Oral Health for Total Health”. Dental hygienists remind us that taking care of our mouth, teeth, and gums benefits our overall physical and mental well-being. Dental hygienists are oral health experts and primary health care providers. They work in traditional dental offices and independent dental hygiene practices, clinics, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and the community.
