January 2020 Digital Agenda
Digital Agenda covers all that’s happening under Dimensions’ social media platforms.
New! Student Website Is Launched
We are excited to announce the launch of Dimensions of Dental Hygiene’s new student website—sponsored by Sunstar—and designed to support dental hygiene students as they journey toward becoming dental hygienists. With articles written exclusively for students, study guides and quizzes, and much more, this site will help dental hygiene students every step of the way.
Share Your Thoughts
In this issue Margaret Langelier, MSHSA, writes about growing opportunities for dental hygienists with expanding scope of practice in her Guest Editorial on page 16. Like Dimensions of Dental Hygiene’s Facebook page at: facebook.com/dimensionsofdentalhygiene/ and share your thoughts on this question, “Do you see expanding opportunities for dental hygienists in your area?” We may publish your comment in an upcoming edition of our new column “Social Commentary” (page 15), and one lucky respondent will receive a coupon for a free continuing education course.
