Gift from the Heart

Saturday, April 9, 2016
Across Canada
Contact: bev_woods@hotmail.com

Gift From the Heart was launched in 2009 by CDHA member, RRDH Bev Woods, as an Ontario initiative, where on one day dental hygienists can give back to the community by providing no cost treatment to those that cannot afford dental hygiene services. Traditionally the event has been held close to Valentine’s Day but this year the event will kick off National Dental Hygienists Week™. More than 40 clinics are already registered to participate in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan. We'd like to see the rest of the country represented!

Check out the 2015 wrap up video

We are Dental Hygienists and TOGETHER we can make a difference...

One Smile at a Time! Let's show all of Canada where our HEART is.
