After acceptance into dental hygiene school, Student membership in CDHA is the next most important step to becoming consummate dental hygiene professional.
CDHA represents the student voice in the dental hygiene profession. Membership is open to all students enrolled in entry-level as well as degree completion and graduate-level dental hygiene programs.
Any student enrolled in a dental hygiene program is eligible for Student membership, if the school is accredited by a national agency recognized by the Council on Post-Secondary Accreditation or the US Department of Education. California currently has 28 accredited dental hygiene schools, three of which are Bachelor of Science programs.
DHAI and CDHA invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to apply for the 2021 Cora Ueland Scholarship. Applications are due April 30, 2021.
