The Vermont Dental Hygienists’ Association has had a stable year by continuing to support our professional advancement, growth and maintenance of our current scope of practice. We have tried to build on the feedback we heard at last year’s annu-al meeting and were able to hold a CE in the southern part of Vermont. It is my pleasure to extend a personal invitation for you to attend the Thirteenth Annual Vermont Oral Health Conference – “Facing the Future-Together.” The VDHA Annual Meet-ing Committee has put together a remarkable continuing education program with courses and activities that will interest all the members of the dental team. Attendance and participation during our annual meeting provides an excellent opportunity to network with your fellow oral health colleagues and increase your knowledge on current oral health information, research and events. Please join us for an exciting two days of learning and fun.
