ADHA Student Delegates
Students have a unique opportunity to apply for a position as a Student Delegate and Alternate Delegate. As a Student Delegate, you not only represent all student members of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association for your district, but you also sit on the House of Delegates floor during all three meetings. Each student will be considered for the student delegate position. If you are not selected as the student delegate, you will automatically be considered for the alternate delegate position.
Student Delegates are funded to attend District IV’s workshop and the American Dental Hygienists’ Association’s Annual Conference. Funding consists of airfare, lodging (two students per room), ground transportation and per diem. Because funds may vary annually, please contact your District Trustee for the exact dollar amount. To learn more about specific qualifications, duties and to apply, click Student Delegate Application.
In my practice as a dental hygienist, I affirm my personal and professional commitment to improve the oral health of the public, to advance the art and science of dental hygiene, and to promote high standards of quality care.
I pledge continually to improve my professional knowledge and skills, to render a full measure of service to each patient entrusted to my care, and to uphold the highest standards of professional competence and the personal conduct in the interests of the dental hygiene profession and the public it serves.
