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
- March 19, 2016: a seminar, “Crossroads in Dental Hygiene: Triaging for Comprehensive Oral Health Care” by Kathleen Eisin, DDS, MS, GRCC Calkins Science Center
- April 26. 2016: “Head and Neck Exam” by Karim Enas, DDS, Partners in Dental Care, 2565 Forest Hill Avenue SE,Grand Rapids MI 49546
- May 18, topic and location TBA.
