Group Selfies Can Now Help Support the Dental Hygiene Profession

The Dental Geek Blog launches #TheDentalGeekSelfie Campaign, donating $1 to the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health for each selfie submitted.

In partnership with the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA), The Dental Geek Blog recently launched a campaign dedicated to generating funds for the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health (IOH).

The campaign, titled #TheDentalGeekSelfie is aimed at bringing the dental community together to give back to the dental hygiene profession. The Dental Geek is asking dental professionals to submit a group selfie at For every group selfie submitted from a dental professional team – whether it’s a dental office, marketing team or dental lab, The Dental Geek will donate $1 to the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health (IOH).

The Institute for Oral Health’s mission is to advance the profession of dental hygiene through educational scholarships, research grants and community service grants to hygienists throughout the country.

In addition to the donation to the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health, The Dental Geek will choose one participating dental office at random and provide them with a free professional photography session. The high-quality photography session of the practice and its employees offers a great marketing tool for website and social media development as well as patient brochures.

The Dental Geek launched #TheDentalGeekSelfie Campaign to align with the ADHA’s 91st Annual Session. During the popular industry event, The Dental Geek is showcasing the campaign throughout The Institute for Oral Health Booth #221 in the Community Center. Attendees can stop by the booth to find out more about the campaign.

The Dental Geek also welcomes any manufactures, businesses and/or publications in the dental space to contribute to the campaign with additional match donations. Any contribution in support of the dental hygiene profession and the Institute for Oral Health would be greatly appreciated. Interested parties can contact for more information.

The Dental Geek team urges everyone out there to participate and give back to the hygiene community. Need inspiration? Check out #TheDentalGeekSelfie’s photo gallery. For more information about the campaign or to submit a group selfie, please visit or send an email to
