Please note there have been adjustments made to the logistics of this program effective May 12 at 14:00 ET

CDHA recognizes the incredible challenges that Canadian dental hygienists and dental hygiene students have faced during the COVID-19 crisis and is working to support our members in every manner possible. To that end, in partnership with Crest + Oral-B, CDHA is pleased to oversee the distribution of a donation that will provide monetary support to a limited number of CDHA members experiencing extraordinary financial hardship as a direct result of the COVID-19 global pandemic. We understand that all of our members have been impacted by this pandemic to varying degrees but CDHA is very grateful that, through the generosity of Crest + Oral-B, we are in a position to help a few of those who have been hit particularly hard.

The application process is now closed. Recipients will be selected and contacted the week of May 25.
