The Grand Shores Dental Hygienists’ Association News

What do you get when you combine the Grand Rapids Dental Hygienists’ Society with the Lakeshore Dental Hygienists’ Association? The Grand Shores Dental Hygienists’ Association (GSDHA).
This newly formed association covers the counties of Kent, Lake, Mason, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oceana and Ottawa, with a current membership of 110 members.

In 2015, the Michigan Dental Hygienists’ Associations Board of Trustees redistricted the components in our state, from “18” components to “9” in an effort to be more efficient, effective and relevant. We have made new friends in our profession and increased our boundaries, our leadership pool, and our opportunities.

GSDHA’s current activities include

GSDHA Officers include: President, Jamie Klap; VP, Tara Brown; Recording Secretary & MDHA Trustee, Tracie Beals; Treasurer & Membership Secretary, Kathy Roos; WMDF Trustee, Dawn Kamyszek; Board members @ large: Cheryl Bentley, Mary Nienhouse; Newsletter/Communications, Pennie Lewis.
