I wanted to share the Dental Hygiene Quarterly update with you all! For those of you who are a member, the Spring 2023 Edition is in your personal portal. You can click here to access and if you have any questions, please reach out to info@rdhu.ca

The Dental Hygiene Quarterly means a lot to our team here. It is something that we feel very proud of and excited about at the same time, as we know we are helping so many dental hygienists keep on-track with their QA requirements. Just think, for those of you who haven't experienced Dental Hygiene Quarterly as of yet, every quarter we deliver approximately 3 hours of Professional Development into your portal. If you keep up with the quarterly editions, it truly is the easy button to keeping current with QA Requirements.

The Dental Hygiene Quarterly (DHQ) was really the start of my journey in the Professional Development market. I was approached many years ago, when I owned my own dental instrument company, to present for the Dental Hygiene Quarterly. At the time it was named DVD Journal of Dental Hygiene. For those of you who have been with us since the beginning, you may remember the sessions on instrumentation and sharpening that I did! We have many members who have been with us since its inception. We still have a large number who receive the DVD's rather than online only. When the original owner was retiring and looking for someone to take over his company, he approached me, as he knew that there would be a good fit with DHQ and rdhu.

Since we purchased DHQ in Spring 2016, we have made some changes along the way, but always kept with the original design and intention of what the DHQ was meant to be. Keeping you on track with each season/edition.

Dental Hygiene Quarterly is part of the CDHA membership benefit program. For those members who are a part of the Canadian Dental Hygienist's Association, you will receive a $50 Gift Card to go toward the membership. So the membership is $149 rather than $199.

Along the way we have added so many things to help those who maintain a Learning Portfolio or who must complete a report on learning. We have also stored everything in one area for those who need to complete the quiz and submit a CE certificate. We have added a Special Bonus Feature to each edition, added The RDH View to DHQ members' portals and are always looking for great topics and presenters to share.

Once we launch one edition, we already get to work on the next! My son Aiden, is our videographer and also editor and we have really enjoyed working on each edition together.

We are celebrating our 7 year Anniversary where we have brought the Dental Hygiene Quarterly under the rdhu umbrella and I wanted to take this time to thank those of you who are a member and also invite those of you who aren't to discover what DHQ can do for you to help you along your journey! Please see below for more information.

Thank you for reading! Please see below for what is coming up and have a great week ahead!

Kindest regards,
