About us

The Newfoundland Dental Hygienists Association was first formed in the 1960's and a formal constitution was ratified in the 1980's. On June 8, 2002, the association officially became the Newfoundland and Labrador Dental Hygienists Association (NLDHA). Our goal is to provide for the professional and fellowship needs of dental hygienists in Newfoundland & Labrador. We aim to advance the awareness of the profession and contribute to the health of the population of the province.

The NLDHA is not a regulatory body. We are a group of volunteers who give a small portion of our own time to serve. We have no physical office or staff members.
