A Message From Your CDHA President:

We all know that our state of Connecticut has made our mark in the history books as the founders of the dental hygiene profession with Irene Newman as the first Dental Hygienist to work clinically and Alfred Fones establishing the first dental hygiene program in Bridgeport in 1913.  The 100 year milestone for our profession was celebrated in 2013 in Boston with special events in Bridgeport, CT as well.


In 1914, Connecticut was the first state to establish a professional organization with our Connecticut Dental Hygienists Association having 19 charter and 9 associate members. Irene Newman was the first CDHA President.  By 1917, Connecticut became the first state to license dental hygienists. From there, other states took notice and began setting up their own licensure and forming associations.  


Jump forward and we will be leading into the 100 year anniversary of the American Dental Hygienists Association with a July 2023 celebration in Chicago, where ADHA headquarters are located.  ADHA was founded in 1923 as a national association to unite and support dental hygienists with just 46 members in the first year. The first national meeting was held in Cleveland OH that September and Winifred Hart from Bridgeport CT was elected the first President of ADHA. Now, ADHA represents more than 226,000 registered dental hygienists across the country.  


Connecticut made this all happen.  We should all be proud to be a dental hygienist in this state!  We should not allow our unique history to stay in the past….instead, let it inspire us to want to continue making history for our profession, be leaders, be innovators, be advocates, be educators, be strong ,be united, be active, and be members!   


Membership is what drives our association and allows us legislative power in order to advance.  I hope to see us grow in strength.  I hope our association communicates our value and opportunities well.  As President, I hope I will be able to help make a difference to better our profession and our association.  


One of my first actions as President is to help bring our association back to its origins. You may notice some changes as we return to using "Connecticut Dental Hygienists' Association" (CDHA) as our official name rather than "ADHA Connecticut " (ADHA -CT) that was used for the past few years.


Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, comments, suggestions, or ideas.  We are YOUR association, we will always welcome and need YOUR input.
