Join forces with the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA) as we mark our fifth year recognizing dental hygiene health care superheroes in communities across Canada. Championed by CDHA and sponsored by SENSODYNE, the Dental Hygiene Superhero competition runs from February 1 to May 17 and celebrates dental hygienists who educate and empower their clients to embrace the “oral health for total health” motto.
Do you know a dental hygienist who promotes oral health for disease prevention and overall wellness? “The SENSODYNE Superhero competition is a great way to share your experiences with us, and to recognize the impact your dental hygienist has had on your oral and overall health,” says Wendy Stewart, CDHA president. “As a dental hygienist, I am always so proud to hear stories about how dental hygienists make differences in people’s lives,” adds Stewart. Over the past four years more than 3,200 deserving dental hygienists have been nominated by employers, clients or colleagues. In 2022 we hope to exceed last year’s 778 nominations. Nominees are evaluated on their client focus, empowerment through education, accountability, leadership, integrity, respect, and compassion.
