CDHA President’s Welcome

Tracy Bowser, RDH, DipDH, DipDT

On behalf of the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA) board of directors, I would like to invite you to beautiful St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, for CDHA’s 2019 national conference. We hope you will join us from October 3 to 5 as we “DISCOVER” new knowledge on a wide range of oral health topics presented by internationally recognized speakers and reconnect with colleagues from across the country. The unique landscape of Canada’s most easterly point is sure to entice you with its icebergs, whales, seabirds, and wildlife! I look forward to sharing these many opportunities for discovery with you!


The conference brings the oral health community together in order to:

  • Share new knowledge and discuss its implications for clinical practice
  • Build collegial relationships among oral health researchers, clinicians, subject matter experts, and individuals from academia and industry
  • Communicate information about valid and useful research tools and resources
  • Foster a spirit of collaboration among peers to improve clinical care and advance the dental hygiene profession
