    Incoming Freshman,
    I’m very happy to see that you have begun joining the Open lab group! I wanted to welcome you all and congratulate you all on your acceptance into the DH program! You’ve all worked hard to get here and it shows! You’ve got a rewarding journey ahead of you. You can use this page to post questions regarding SADHA. As the beginning of the semester gets closer, we will share more information about the mentoring program. In the meantime I would love to hear what you, as an incoming freshman, would like to gain and see from SADHA. Congrats!

    Hello Stephanie,

    First of all I’d like to thank you for the warm welcome. I hope I can get a list of tutoring (if applicable) and mentoring throughout the semester. I would also like to get more hands on experience with patient to patient. I want to see many difference cases before I come out to the real world to see my own patients!

    Hi Jimmy, we will provide you with a senior mentor, you will get information at your orientation! In regards to tutoring, when I was a freshman they recommended tutoring if you needed it in clinic first semester. A professor has to give you a paper stating you need the extra help, otherwise, we just studied together and went to office hours if we had any questions on lecture topics. We also have access to the learning center in the old building so that you can practice instrumentation on your own time. We definitely see patients while in school. As to the details to all of this, the program coordinator will tell you everything at orientation! Ask these questions again at orientation and I believe professor Davide or whoever the coordinator is this year will have all the answers for you.

    Thank you, Stephanie!

    I’d like to ask if there’s any perks of being part of SADHA? If so, what would it be?

    Hi Jimmy,
    SADHA is a student chapter of the ADHA (American Dental Hygiene Association). That in itself you can call a perk. The ADHA is basically who fights for hygienists rights. They’re the ones that will be able to get us the right to administer anesthesia without limits, they’re the ones who will advocate for us to get the right to open our own practice without a dentist etc. Being a part of the student chapter you can learn first hand about what the ADHA can do for you and what you can do for them when you’re a hygienist. You get the opportunity to apply to be a delegate as a senior, amongst other things. But it’s not only serious stuff, we have fun stuff as well such as the welcome party, and toothbrush sales. If we get the funds we need from the sales we may even be able to send a select few to certain events. Joining SADHA also gives you the opportunity to voice your opinion on things you’d like to see as as a student and as a future hygienist. Also, you don’t have to be an officer ( President, VP, etc.) to be part of SADHA! It’s not a club, but it is an extension of the ADHA.
