A message from the President: A strong voice for the profession
I am filled with excitement as I look ahead to my term serving as president of one of the largest health-care professions in Ontario. Together, with the ODHA Board of Directors, we are committed to keeping the lines of communication open so we can represent your voice to bring about change.
Your voice is important to the strength and growth of the profession in Ontario. Together we can continue to accomplish great things to advance the profession. A larger membership increases ODHA’s ability to advocate for members and strengthen our position when oral health issues are submitted to the Ontario government where health-care decisions are made. The passing of the spousal exception regulation in October 2020 is evidence of what can be accomplished together.
A strong membership also gives ODHA the ability to negotiate a wide range of membership services and benefits for your personal and professional growth.
ODHA offers amazing benefits and services, including first class professional development online courses and in person seminars for dental hygienists practising in Ontario. I personally take advantage of the many benefits. Some of my favourites include amazing malpractice and critical illness insurances.
There are so many reasons to belong to the ODHA. One I am confident of, is you will find an association that will stand with you and support you throughout your career, being a strong voice in the province where you work.
Let’s keep moving the profession forward, together!
Your profession. Your province. Your association.
2020-2021 President: Carrie Vondrau, RRDH
