A message from the President: A strong voice for the profession

cassim_0439I 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. 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 the best malpractice and critical illness insurances, both helpful for me as an independent practice owner. I often use the car rental and Canada’s Wonderland discounts as well.

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.

Thank you for joining and being part of a dynamic association. Want more information? Contact Donna Hood at ODHA.

Your profession. Your province. Your association.

2019-2020 President: Maheen Cassim RDH
