Our Summer Specials are coming to a close this week! Thank you to all of you who registered for the Dental Hygiene Quarterly Buy 1 Year Get 1 Year FREE ($149 for CDHA members) and/or the All Access Virtual Pass to all rdhu Live Streaming Courses for the 2023-2024 Academic Year!

Our team had our annual summer off-site meeting/retreat last week where we spent a few days reviewing last year, celebrating our wins, looking at things that do not serve us so we can make a change this next academic year, and planning an exciting year ahead!

I surprised the team with organizing a paddle board yoga session! It was good fun, team building and my body felt it for 5 days! :) I also had posted 8 X 10 pics of each team member on the wall and throughout the few days, encouraged each other to write a word or two about that team member on a post-it note to stick to the pics. This was also a nice way to recognize each others unique abilities.

Do you meet annually for an off-site retreat with your team? It is good to do on so many levels. It is good to connect on a personal note, to recharge, to be somewhere outside of the office and to block off this time to work ON the business, rather than IN the business.

We are excited about the rdhu All Access Virtual Pass as we have a nice group of dental hygienists who will take part and take as many courses as they like. We are also very thankful for all our presenters who are a part of this! This pass will give you access to ALL Live Streaming courses for one price. Some offices have purchased a pass for each dental hygienist from their practice and will strategize following the sessions to discuss how they can implement their new knowledge into their practice to really make transformation happen! At the end of the day, we don't offer courses through rdhu so that it can be a Check-Box "got my CE hours" experience! We are about the "wow" and the "ah-hah" moments, where we can really make an impact on transformation in the dental practice.

We have our conference in November coming up at the Dentsply Sirona Academy, which will be super amazing and lots of hands-on in person courses scheduled as well.

I know this week will be a busy one with the specials wrapping up, as we have many calls, emails and contact forms from the website coming in! We appreciate your patience with us and will get back to you with your inquiries ASAP. If you are from a practice and would like special pricing and a unique registration to sign up more than one person, please email us at and either Pearl or Mary Tess will get back to you!

Thank you for your support and for reading!

Have a great week!
