Announcement: Updated Classification for Dental Hygienists!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU ADHA ~ THE U.S. GOV'T FINALLY RECOGNIZES RDH'S AS HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS
From Ann Battrell, CEO ADHA via Caryn Solie, President NDHA:
In 2018 the US Office of Management and Budget updated the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC).
Dental Hygienists are now classified as Healthcare Diagnosing or Treating Practitioners!
Prior to 2018 the profession was classified as Health Technologists or Technicians.
Took quite a number of years to get there - but we got there this year!
