ADHA’s Empowering Dental Hygienists Webinar Series for National Dental Hygiene Month: Webinar 2

October 19th 6:00pm-7:30pm Central Time – Free to all attendees

I love my profession of dental hygiene and I want more! Does this sound like you? Do you ever think I want something different in my career? I want to take the art and science of my wonderful dental hygiene profession to a new peak, do something different, be EMPOWERED. Join a collaborative conversation with 4 dynamic empowered dental hygienists who have taken their dental hygiene talents and expanded the depth and breadth of their careers. These women actively pursued their passions to develop roles as hygienists in clinical settings and outside the hygiene operatory. And you can too!

Become an EMPOWERED hygienist. Join this webinar to listen to hygienists, just like you, who became authors, entrepreneurs, direct access providers, practice movers and shakers, business managers and corporate managers on how they defined their future, created their opportunities and what it means to them to be EMPOWERED.

There will be a robust discussion and plenty of time to ask your questions. We look forward to seeing you there.
