President's Message - October 2014

Greetings fellow hygienists,

On October 3rd, 2014, at the close of our annual House of Delegates meeting, I had the honor of assuming the presidency of the Nevada Dental Hygienists’ Association.  Serving with me this year is an outstanding group of women who are all dedicated to making the dental hygiene profession the best it can be.  Whether you work in private practice, education, or public health, whether you work full time or part time, and especially if you are searching for work, whether you participate in your professional association or not, your board of trustees is committed to creating a community for Nevada dental hygienists and investing in our shared future.

My focus for the next year is squarely on the future of the dental hygiene profession.  The obligation of our professional association is to protect all that we have fought so hard to achieve, and to seek the limit of our potential as health care providers, so that our patients receive the highest quality care, just as they deserve.  I will do all I can to make sure Nevada dental hygienists are recognized by all to be an integral part of our health care system.

The Nevada Dental Hygienists’ Association is more important than ever.  In an atmosphere of change in the health care system, the Nevada Dental Hygienists’ Association is your representative, your guardian, and your champion.  NDHA is dedicated to a collaborative health care model, and represents the dental hygiene profession at interdisciplinary events, so that preventive oral health care may be valued and seen as an avenue for reduced long term health care costs.  NDHA also works at a legislative level to safeguard the current scope of practice, and to find new ways for hygienists in our state to use our skills, knowledge, and education to our fullest potential.  NDHA supports dental hygienists personally and directly by offering high quality, pertinent education opportunities so that we can maintain the highest quality care for our patients.  NDHA also strives to be a source of networking and support so that hygienists can learn about employment opportunities, and so no one feels they are practicing all on their own.

The House of Delegates meeting just completed in Reno is the start of what we hope will be an exciting and innovative year. Besides continuing education opportunities, NDHA is involved in mentoring programs and volunteer activities in the community, as well as leadership workshops for those looking to stretch their leadership wings.  Our website and our Facebook page are resources for all hygienists, to let you all know how your association is serving our profession.  We will be reaching out to our rural Nevada colleagues by employing more videoconferencing opportunities for continuing education, and our House of Delegates meeting next October will resemble a weekend retreat.  There will be many fun and exciting opportunities for educational and personal growth as we strive to be the best possible advocates for dental hygiene in the state of Nevada.  We want to meet your needs.  Your board of trustees and I are at your service, and we are committed to creating a bigger and better community for all hygienists in our state.

Sincerely,

Annette Lincicome, BS, RDH
NDHA President

President's Message - April 2012

Educapalooza or Bust!

Dear Fellow Hygienists,

This is a very serious message I’m sending out tonight.  I want to start with thanking all of you members who have belonged in the past with conviction, passion, and no question for how valuable membership in your professional association is for you and your families.  We cajole and plead for new membership and forget to thank those of you who are providing the fuel that keeps the ship going.  Thank you so much for your contribution and commitment.  I will always remember you.
