The 35th year of RDH’s service to the dental hygiene profession noted several changes. We had a new look in our
design, including the cover itself, as well as introduced new columnists and writers who are focused on current issues
facing anyone with the RDH credential by their name. More hygienists than ever are able to provide expanded services
or deliver care to underserved patient groups.
It’s getting harder and harder to defne dental hygiene in a simple way. Folks had better sit down if they want a
conversation about what a dental hygienist does. But we continue to try to have this conversation every month and
much more frequently with our digital media content.
The dental trade is much more aware of the ongoing evolution too. On one hand, they address the equipment needs of
the dental hygienist whose entire operatory is in the trunk of her car. This is a sharp contrast to the hygienist who has
a special request for the dental hygiene staff in a corporate dental setting or group practice.
We’re excited about remaining a part of the conversation between dental hygienists and the dental industry.
2017 holds much promise for all of us.
